History
Bought in El Paso, TX for my son Chris as his high school graduation gift. 302 4V auto car with a cooked interior and painted white. We fixed it up for him and he drove it through college. It dropped a valve so we got him another car to get through grad school. It went through a full rotisserie build as a "practice project" in preparation for the Shelby.
