Numbers matching vehicle with year-correct motor was purchased in 2000. A rotisserie restoration was then performed over the next twelve years. The 383 magnum engine was bored 30-over and the transmission was rebuilt, both were done by local professional shops. Took to local dealership’s car show and got 3rd place, then went back the next year and won 1st place. The vehicle has been stored in a temperature controlled room during restoration and since completion.
