Sold new May 1964 at Bill Eger Motors Denver, Colorado. Made it's way east to Texas sometime in the late 90's where it was restored and the engine/trans were rebuilt. Galen Govier certified in 2003 and at that time was #3 in V.I.N. sequence of 8 known in his registry. Being a dry southwest car from day one it is a very dry car and seems to have all its original sheet metal. I have procured numerous NOS items and have installed them on the car such as reverse lights, reverse light back up switch, rear tail lamp harness, rear view mirror, side view mirror, Sport Fury trunk script, washer bag, distributor vacuum advance, firewall bulkhead connector, fuel fill cap, Mopar 34P plug set etc. Correct date coded plug wires provided by Lectric Limited of Bedford Park, Il.

The original 426-S has been bored 0.20 over, align honed, block decked, rods stressed relieved, rods resized, rotating assy balanced and short block clearances blueprinted. Only the best of the best internals utilized, Ross pistons, Childs & Albert rings, REV S/S valves, Melling oil pump, Clevite mains & rod bearings, Cloyes double roller timing chain, Comp Cams stock grind cam, bronze guides, double valve springs, Fel Pro engine gasket set.
