What is especially important about this convertible is that the numbers match, as the engine was the top of the range model at the time.
The L71 427 Turbo-Jet V8 produced a staggering 435 HP, and unlike other L71’s that have made it down through the years, this one has the correct triangular air filter and triple Holley 2-barrel downdraft carburetors with matching numbers to the engine.
This car also has the same Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission it left the factory with.
In fact, the only part that has been noted as having any restoration done is the suspension.
And for that suspension restoration, they used as much of the original A-arms at the front and five-leaf transverse rear spring in the back.
As is obvious from the pictures, this is a C2 that has been loved and cared for properly since it rolled out of the factory.
