First of all, to all the long time members and posters here, thanks for all
the help you guys gave me along the way when I was rebuilding this car. I
always got good info here. I'm hoping I can get just a little bit more
I plan on selling my 1967 RS/SS 350, 4p car. Built in Los Angeles January
'67. Disc brakes, 4 speed, 12 bolt posi (3.31:1)
Doesn't have the original motor or trans, or the 4 piston calipers (it has
'69 single puck calipers). But still has 12 bolt rear end with radius rod
and most of the original interior.
Car is completely restored mechanically, I mean everything. Motor is a GW
350 with Edelbrock heads, Comp XE283, Perf RPM intake, MSD, etc etc. (20 k
mostly easy miles).
Trans is Th2004R built by Bowtie Overdrives, level three with 2400 stall and
Car runs and drives like new.
But it needs paint, a grille, and a new patch panel on the right rear
quarter. And it has alittle rust (not visible) around the back glass. It
does leak a little through there into the trunk if its left outside in the
rain. Floors, trunk, and subframes are solid and no rust there. I've got
$10k in parts in it.
This car has been in my possession since '86. I bought it in San Diego,
moved to Louisiana in '87 and its been here ever since. It's been garaged
exclusively since '90. Most of the restoration work was completed between
'99 and '03.
Best 1/4 time with 3.31 rear end was firstname.lastname@example.org . Not too bad. And its
very civilized in terms of its driveability and also reliable and gets
decent fuel economy with the OD (probably irrelevant) -- ~17 mpg on average
if driven with a light foot.
I mainly measure fuel consumption in this car in smiles-per-gallon, but I
I've shown the car to three potential buyers here locally. Problem is that
none of them could differentiate between a 6 cyl sport coupe and my car.
One guy had the balls to tell me that because his '67 SS that he bought new
didn't have RS equipment that my car was some kind of fake! "They didn't
make the taillights like that back in '67 (rs config). Believe me son, I
know what I'm talking about". Uhh huh.
He didn't know anything about trim tags either so that pretty much
classified that guy in my mind.
Thanks for any and all input.
