In Sept 2000 Eugene and Lynette saw this for sale in Colorado. It was originally built in Kansas City. The 85,000-mile, 265 V8 became a body-off, full restoration project in 2003. With a few factory-correct options such as power steering, power brakes, A/C and a power pack engine, this project was under way. As they worked, they realized the engine was actually a ’57 283 block with 265 heads and intake, and the Powerglide transmission was also from a ’57. The hunt started for the right engine and transmission. After Eugene found the production date for the car, he then found a date-correct 265 four-barrel V8 in Denver, Co. Watch the rest of the video for the rest of this amazing story! And remember, if you have a project of your own, visit us at for all your parts and accessories!
