No longer owned


Bought from a buddies dad recently, in pretty good condition needs minimal body work and painted, numbers matching car. Its an automatic 3 speed factory turbo 400 tranny, 400 motor, carter quadrajet. No engine mods as of right now. Quick and tourqy for being all original. It got its nickname cuz of how it looks, like a sleeper and something unexpected to win a race. I have quite a few buddies that have camaros or trans ams and it has no problem out running or keeping up.

Factory Options

As far as I know so far it had an option of a lower hp 400 and a higher hp 400 it has the higher hp 400, front disk brakes, limited slip 10 bolt rear, 3 speed auto floor shift, I think a/c but not sure still trying to get Vin decoded


None so far only mods im considering so far is an accel ignition system, rear air shocks, bigger cam, 455 headers, new exhaust, and maybe ignition set up in exhaust as well for ****s n giggles
