With the exception of its fiberglass hood, this Pro Street is all steel. Custom touches include its custom grill and a rear station wagon bumper. Custom wheels and new chrome and polished stainless steel trim complete the look. It also benefits from new glass and mirrors.
The interior is equally impressive and features new seats, door panels, carpeting, headliner, and dash board. You will also appreciate its Flaming River tilt steering column and full battery of Westach and Dolphin instrumentation, including tachometer. Comfort features include power windows and remote opening door and trunk.
One item of note is that the clock and stereo are not currently functioning. Unupholstered racing seats and racing harnesses will also be included with sale if so desired. All available documentation from the build will also be provided to the next owner of this car.
