So I will enter for the Originality folks. Need one non custom to consider. This restoration was just finished in June. Dad and mom are original owners. Dad ordered car in Nov of 65 and took delivery in Jan 66. Was my first car and drove as every day driver for a few years. Complete restoration of an original L79 down to each nut and bolt.

327/350 HP Muncie M21, factory posi, factory metallic brake linings, push button Am radio, heavy duty suspension and a few other options.
