About “The Dual Carb 70 RIV”

I picked this car up on 11-12-11 it runs but did not drive. after getting it home found out the torque converter bolts fell out so i got new one and drive like a dream
check out the video of the dual carbs first start
sold it on 10-25-13 For $2500
I sold it to by a 1941 G506 but after i sold the car the guy sold the truck the day before if i knew that i would have never sold the car

About “Dominique”

This was my grandmother's car that I acquired in 2008. She didn't really take care of it but it was garage kept, so it stayed away from any hard deterioration. I take care of it to the best of my ability, keeping it shiny and intact. I hit a deer in 2010 and paid $2,000 to have most of the front replaced by a local company that knew my family. She also had a factory defect involving the camshaft that caused her to break down twice, but that has since been resolved (to my knowledge). And as of May 2013, I have a freshly rebuilt transmission!
