Car description

It was June 20, 1963, after six months of waiting my car was finally here. The mechanics at the small-town dealership had never seen fuel injection, the car wouldn't idle and it was running rich but I didn't care. I was 17, I put my suitcase in the back and headed back to California at a breaking speed of 25 mph.
My first change was to get rid of those skinny wheels. I went to moon equipment and bought a set of American mags. They were $60 each. I couldn't afford the center caps I had to save up for them. The next change was a trip to Jardine headers. They built a set on the car for $95. In 1965 the body mods were done by J&D Corvette in the car got a 30 coat candy by Watson for $250.
I went to the drags a few times at Lyon's dragstrip. I put a pair of slicks from a friends AA/F dragster (very dumb kid). The car would have run mid 12s with the right tire. I even got to raise a cobra wants.
I damage two cylinders when I tried some aftermarket parts. It was going to cost $90 to sleeve or $95 for a brand new block. I went with the new block so it has no numbers. The casting numbers are right for the error. The crank, rides, fly wheel are all original.
From the late 60s on, the car sat in the garage while I did the military and work thing. Intothousand when I was doing hospice care for my mother, I got a case of the "might as well". I went through the engine, suspension, and did a new candy paint job.
So this is what we have a one owner '63 split window for Fuelie with 33,000 miles on the frame and 300 miles on the engine. I have the bill of sale, and the window sticker. The car was in the rain one time, and was driven by my mother one time, my wife drove it Around the block one time, and other than that I am the only driver ever. I am old now, to heart attacks, and one cancer. I think it's time to pass my baby on.
