Last updated Jul 31, 2011
Got this picture from the internet I have not found a picture of the car so this will have to do. It is not too far from the way the car actually looked back in 1981. did not have the red lines though. Got rear ended in 1982 on the ice. Put 2 dents in the deck lid other than that, you would not know it had been hit.
This was my first car me and my younger brother David bought it together it had 211,000 on it and was owned by a mechanic so it ran great and it looked pretty good had some rust on the rear quarters behind the wheel that we glassed in to repair. Drove it my first year of High school then my brother inherited it. It was still our car though. My dad sold it in 1986 it was sitting outside on the car lot we had at the time and got hailed on sold it for $200.00
engine size, (327)
horsepower/torque,(enough to squeal the tires)
1/4 mile, (?)
top speed(Don't tell my dad but we had it to 120 that is all the speedo would read)
327, AC, Auto, Rally Wheels, PS, P brakes, White interior (it was in excellent shape and looked great)
We did a brake job on it once belts hoses air cleaner changed the oil regularly.
