Lot #699.2 - This underwent a no-expense-spared, one-year restoration. It features a classic nostalgic look with unique custom modern upgrades. This car was born with all the factory loaded options, such as power windows, air conditioning, power brakes and power steering. It is also a rare Caprice Super Sport with factory bucket seats, automatic floor shifter with console and console-mounted gauge package. It was also born with luxury vinyl roof option, but was upgraded it by wrapping it in a Mercedes Phantom convertible top material for a very updated unique look. It features a fully performance-built 396ci big-block engine with Turbo 400 automatic transmission. It's also equipped with an aluminum dual fan cross-flow radiator by Northern and Sanderson ceramic-coated headers with custom Flowmaster 2.5 dual exhaust. It features custom one-off aluminum rims built by Intro with a unique brushed face. Stopping is provided by 4-wheel disc brakes with huge Wilwood calipers, front/rear cross-drilled slotted rotors and an upgraded Wilwood dual master cylinder. It was painted in two-stage PPG-brand custom Platinum Silver with iridescent pearl, making it unique, and finished out to a laser-straight glass finish. Many parts were shaved and/or modified for a sleek look. The grille and many exterior and interior moldings have also been chromed, creating uniform brightwork. The interior was refinished in original black for a nostalgic look with a custom touch. Other features include a custom CD/MP3/iPod stereo with a 3.5 jack connector. This is a one-of-a-kind showstopper.
