This car, shown elsewhere at this site in original trim, was originally owned by George Carlin and was well documented in many interviews as his favorite car. Since owned by his agent and then a Hollywood scriptwriter, and now undergoing restoration. The car has been painted and the original interior was freshened with new carpets and a perfect dash and redone wood.
Pics in this gallery show the restoration process. The car will be fitted with a fuel injected 3.6-litre stroker, using an M90 block, 86mm crank, CP Pistons and a plethora of other goodies. A sports suspension, 5 speed, LSD, stainless exhaust w/ headers, and a nice stereo will also be added…Fun project.
