Car description

Up for Sale is a fine example of a barn find brought back to life. This car was purchased out of a garage in Millerton NY 2 years ago where is sat since 1983. (see inspection sticker pic) The car belonged to a family in an old Victorian home to where the mother and son and sister used this car since day one. It has 23,000 original miles on it. The last survivor, Mr Parr had no family left so gifted his entire estate to a very good frien, who just recently in the past few years started to sell off things, including the car and the house. The car has excellent well preserved bones. Sporting its perfect seats and door panels and original patina paint job, (note one hole in headliner). The engine was frozen solid, so this was a huge undertaking, and costly $$ -(see two pics of the engine out of the car) but a great learning experience for me, and now that I saved the car, putting almost 2,000 miles on it, it's time to sell it to the right someone else. The car has mechanically everything new. Sporting its newly rebuild 215 Aluminum v, original transmission that shifts smoothly, it rides on brand new bias ply Cooker Tires ($1,200 alone!)To mention - the new:aluminized single exhaust, 1 new piston, new cam, new lifters, bearings, a new valve job, generator and starter, complete brakes front and rear - wheel cylinders, pads, (stops great!) and new belts, hoses, and new Delco battery.
The Body - There are a few small holes on the right inner fender kick panel area and in the trunk over the back wheel wel, but the overall body itself is original and untouched and reflects the miles, and frankly It gets a lot of attention at local car shows being in the preserved state. The undercarriage including the floors are solid. You can take this car to the next level by fixing the surface issues or continue to drive and enjoy it. I take great pride in rescuing this car so its important it goes to the right new owner. These cars were a great design for GM, and it has all the power and comfort and style of the big Buicks, all at the size of a compact.For an honest description or any questions please call.
