    Well, I've been lurking around here for a little while and decided to finally post my Z that I bought back in June 2015. It has some issues but I've been slowly working them out. The engine was froze when I got it so that was the first step. It now starts and runs, needs a carb rebuild still runs. Fixed some rust and redid the interior. Just put in a Retrosound Hermosa radio and front speaker.

    It has a sb 350. Pulled it out, cleaned it up, new gaskets, new intake, new cam, new rings and bearings, and new timing chain. Now it is definitely time for the carb new rebuild. Hopefully, I can get a set of headers and new exhaust but the original is still in good shape. It is a numbers matching car with low mileage. I think around 79,000 miles.

    I like the louvers but just don't know about that style. If they do stay on, they'll get cleaned up and a fresh coat of paint.

    I don't know if low mileage would be considered at 79000 miles for the time.

    However it does look like a nice ride.

    I think of it as low considering it is approximately 37 years old and my 2013 Dart has 100,000.;)

    Well today with most modern cars that would be considered low, not sure I would consider it with an SBC.

    I do know what you are getting at though.

    Curious as to what you initially paid. I'm in Calif.
