VIN # 30837S108097                                Odometer reads 80,460, believed to be original miles.   Estate sale BARN FIND, stored in a barn for over 30 years. In the 1970’s the car was turned into a custom show car. A 1967 stinger hood replaced the original hood, which is long gone. The car was painted maroon with a black stinger. Side pipes were added to give it a 67 big block look and sound. The interior was changed to black to go with the exterior from dark blue vinyl. All the interior metal trim was chromed, as was most removable metal under the hood. Not sure exactly when or why the car was parked and stored as it was an estate sale.
