That is to say, it was for sale. I saw this time-capsulized gem in February of 2013, at an area car gathering. I didn’t get a look under the hood but, for 1977, a 403 cubic-inch Rocket V8—rated at 180 horsepower—was the top dog choice.
The car was in mint condition. Actually, it looked as though it was maybe a few years old. Something off the road in 1980. It garnered more attention than actual relics showcased on either side of it, no doubt worth far more than the 4-4-2.
And, inside, things looked even more pristine… I expected the new car smell. Check out the eight-track player and tapes.
You may have noticed the asking price written inside: $8,500.
