Interior
Inviting you inside a new interior in black vinyl covers the door panels, front buckets, and rear bench, as well as the padded dash top. All these are very nice looking much like showroom, with no wear or faults, just '68 Pontiac. A very clean original design dash fronts this collection of vinyl, and houses the correct gauges, and all in working condition. A small center console sits between the buckets and houses a short Hurst T style shifter. The headliner is also black vinyl and very tight and near perfect. Black carpet is on all the floors, and extremely clean, and unstained. Sitting in this interior you will definitely be able to say you are in the black.

Drivetrain
Take a 400ci V8 that has 360hp from the factory, that has had its engine block honed during the rebuild. Within the blocks confines we have an upgraded cam that pushes valves @ 2.11/1.77, have a CC of 72, and D-ports. An Edelbrock intake, and Quadrajet 4-barrel carb sit atop and can furiously feed the fossils to the mill which is glad to accept them. A Muncie 4-speed manual transmission is attached, as is a 12-bolt 4.09 geared rear. All this is wrapped up within a very nice engine bay which has been well sorted. Pressing the gas upon starting out, you will be seeing white, smoke that is!

Undercarriage
Simply put, clean, mean, shiny black, and you'll love what you're "seen". No rust here to worry about, just shiny black straight steel and the looks of Independent front suspension, ladder bar rear suspension, and power disc brakes in front, and power drums in the rear. Now I have stars in my eyes.

Drive-Ability
Just getting in you can tell instantly you are in a quality build as the seats have plenty of padding underneath their shiny skins. The car fires right up, idles smoothly, and is rarin' to go. A push of your boot towards the firewall, and you are off like a prom dress. Nice sound, and just a quality restoration with no creaks or squeaks. One slight ergonomic complaint is the shifter is a bit small and almost out of reach. You have to lean fairly far forward to get ahold of it and remain there is you are quick shifting. Its is not anything you would not be able to become accustomed to, but worth a mention.
