Said it is a custom color. I have no idea. The guy owns a paint sand body shop. May be something he just mixed up. It has real heavy metal flake when you are up close.

Don't want to sound like I'm bragging but I think this is the best looking car I've ever had. I just hope I get to drive it.

Hey I know that car. That 557 ought to put it deep in the nines. I'll guess 5.85 1/8 and 9.35 1/4. Good luck, that's a cool old fastback!

Correct. It acted like the converter was bad but it ended up being the carb pump arms in a bind and not allowing the throttle to open. Boy I felt stupid when I got home and figured it out Evil or Very Mad
