About “1976 cutlass”

It is an all original car. The car has not been touched except fothe top witch was dyed the same color of the interior. It has a 350 rocket under the hood. Have all documents from the day one it came home. It camer from Long Beach CA. I found this car on ebay and the lady wanted it to go to a good home. I asked if the car was reliable she asked where I was from? I told her Nebraska She snicked and said she has family in MN she would drive the car there if I would like to have it. Many photos later and 350 miles later. We finally met up. The car was better than the photos. 1 hour later the car was on a trailer. And my wife and I were on our way back to NE. Have been to many shows and have taken many 1st and 2nd place awards. By the way I had one in high school that is why I wanted it. This is all little something my family and I enjoy. Thanks

About “Matty”

I bought this Mat off of Ebay 6 years ago, it was the first car I ever purchased off of Ebay. It was a runner and driver, but just barely. Its been slowly going through a transformation. Im hoping to finaly have it done this year, so I can get it on the road. Im not building a show car, just one I can have fun in.
