Midyear dealer installed: D80 spoilersThis car was restored in 1992 in North Carolina by its original owner, then in 2013 Hendrick
Performance out of Charlotte NC sent the car to auction for Barrett Jackson in Las Vegas.
A car dealer from Vernon B.C. won the bid and took it home and for which he sat on for a year.
In 2014 I was browsing Kijiji car ads I emailed the guy on a possible trade of a 1956 FLH Harley and
money which resulted in a the sale of the car in November 2014.
The dealer drove the car very little and only used the dealer plate to drive a round I became the
first Register owner in Canada of this car which I think is cool.
The car was in excellent shape other than incorrect things in engine compartment painted areas, the incorrect Edelbrock intake, carburetor and air-cleaner.
Red Line Bias Ply tires which horrible drive with, so in trying to keep up the look I went with
a set of Radial T/A’s which ride way better.
So this winter (2016-17) I went over the complete engine compartment first by removing the front
clip, then removing the engine, repainting chassis, firewall and putting on inspection stamps and
Then I installed all the proper hose clamps, brackets, voltage regulator and horn relay.
There were also the factory hoses and fan -clutch, GM part # 6423907 open air-cleaner.
Even the brake booster and master cylinder is correct.
The date coded September 5- 68, 350 300 HP was not left untouched I had went through and balanced.
Then upgraded it to LT1 spec’s by putting in 11.1 pistons, solid lifters and cam, stock GM aluminum
over counter intake #3972116 date coded 4/11/69 and a 780 Holley dual feed GM carburetor.
Lastly I put on a set of Z28 valve covers, set of headers and converted to solid state ignition.
All these changes you could get over the counter at GM in 1969 even Headers (mine are Headman due to the cost of GM headers)!!! Even though most of the headers went on the Z28’s.
Now motor is more rated at 370 HP which is way more fun and still somewhat stock.
