It is fitted with correct Carter Carbs date stamped November ’62.
The overhauled gearbox is a correctly numbered close ratio aluminium `62 T10 date stamped October ’62, and is the last of the T10s before the Muncie was introduced in January 1963.
Sanderson headers replace the original cast headers.
The original interior was ‘well worn’ to say the least; it has been replaced with the correct fawn color vinyl seat covers and side trims, the new hood liner is the correct ‘bark’ pattern. The cracked and faded original padded dash has been replaced with a good condition original pad, recolored the the correct dark fawn.
A true Factory Muscle Car; a Survivor in ‘close’ to original condition, and mostly ‘NUMBERS CORRECT’.
