This gorgeous example has been beautifully restored throughout, retaining its original sheet metal, as well as its all numbers-matching driveline. The Eggshell White paint is simply gorgeous w/ a lustrous shine throughout, and all of the ‘Hang 10’ striping is perfect. All of the chrome & stainless trim appears to be original and is in very good condition w/ only your normal light scratches. This car looks excellent from any & every angle, period. She sits on the original 14” Rallye Wheels, wrapped w/ new Goodyear E70-14 Polyglas tires, just like she did 46 years ago.
Open the driver’s door and you will find a beautiful ‘Hang 10’ interior, that is a combination of ‘mint original’ and newly restored items. Like the exterior, the interior is in ‘excellent’ condition, and it really brings you back to an exciting era of American car manufacturing. The surfer motif is apparent everywhere you look, and the wild colors will make your eyes pop! All of the original gauges, lights, blinkers, etc. are in perfect working order, and everything appears factory correct throughout. The folding rear-seat allows you to carry the ‘Hang 10’ surfboard, which is included in the sale.
Pop open the hood and nestled inside the beautifully detailed engine bay you will find the original numbers-matching 360ci High-Performance motor, lathered in the correct blue paint, and topped off w/ the original bright orange “360’ 4-Barrel air cleaner. No aftermarket modifications were ever done to this car, and all components appear to be factory correct, from the original Carter carburetor, original exhaust manifolds, original Electronic Ignition, down to the (F23) Mopar yellow-cap battery. The original 360 HP motor is linked to the original numbers-matching Torqueflite automatic transmission, which feeds power to the original 8.25” rear-end w/ 2.91 gears (Canada Only). The motor & transmission were fully rebuilt to factory specs at the time of the restoration. She fires up instantly, settling into a nice smooth idle, and she runs, drives & performs beautifully. The factory power steering & factory power front disc brakes make driving around town effortless, and the 360ci HP motor delivers when it’s time to scoot!

You'll notice that the original fender tag is present and in place as it should be.
This is a very special classic car that checks all of the boxes when it comes to collectability. When you consider the overall rarity, the all numbers-matching driveline, the massive amount of original documentation, and the amazing condition of the car itself, you would be very hard pressed to find another example that compares. If you are searching for a Mopar A-Body that will separate you from all of the others out there, you have found your car!
