original restored seat tracks were also included in the sale.
you would have to buy seat covers and the customization is now removed.
from what i have heard, the guy who purchased it removed the hemi & built trans, went thru the motor and re installed the stock drivetrain and sold it to someone in Europe.

look at the triple black hemi GTX in the welborn post. Concours resto 1 of 1 built hemi 4 speed N96 car with full documentation and the car didn't hit $100K.
if that were a e body it would hit $200K+ easy and a 71 B body is almost the same car from the back of the front seats forward.

i will rephrase my they get no love to they are nice cars but they aren't worth much.

when done the original linked car would be hard pressed to sell for over mid to high $20's when done. unless you can do almost all of the work yourself you will be upside down in that car when you are done.


Yes, but the black car has changed hands a couple times in the last few years for well over $100K
