He bought this car brand new in '71 and has owned it ever since. All the serial numbers of course match and it is absolutely mint. It was his baby and I am proud to call it mine now.

WOW! My mother had that exact car and color combo back in '71 right down to the Rally II wheels. Hers, unfortunately only had a base engine but was sweet to drive. Can't imagine the fun you are having while driving and preserving this 455 car. Give her all the octane you can get!
