More info about the car:
"The car is not a mod top car it never came with a vinyl top. It also has a front split bench.
I got the car 10 years ago from a used car dealer in Phoenix. I bought it sight unseen and had it delivered up to me in MN.
I do not know anything about its previous owners except that the used car dealer said it was an Italian family that brought the car to him. The dealer gave me a good deal on it because he thought that the Italian family had put this "real ugly aftermarket interior" in the car.
The 318 smoked enough to clear the neighborhood of bugs and the Arizona sun had done a number on the interior, but the body is unbelievably clean.
I've been working on it for about 10 years now. Buying a house, getting married, having kids and finishing my husband's '69 charger, our '68 Coronet wagon (at the nats in '96) '72 Dart and '72 New Yorker have taken priority.
The interior of the car is basically done with new seats and new door panels. It also now has a new 383 that runs great. This year we hopefully will get to painting it."
