This is a real 442, as designated by the vin #. It is also highly optioned, has great colors and a big block 455 motor. I sold this car 8 years ago and we just got it back. Its in great shape, has clean metal, even the underside is EXTERIOR: Its a handsome looking car. That Matador red paint looks like I could dive right in. Its straight and has mirror reflection. There are a couple minor touch ups. The paint is over 10 years old which is a testament to having a clean body with a quality paint job. I did not see any bubbling down along the bottoms. The fenders, doors, trunk, hood line up nice. The white striping is properly laid out. In front the 442 grills are in excellent shape, the trim is bright, bumper looks new. Emblems, door handles, stainless trim is excellent. In back the bumper is rechromed and has the cutouts for the trumpet exhaust tips. The wheels are restored, has really bright polished trim rings and BFG tires. The door jambs are nice. Bottom of the doors are real clean, the weather strips and window seals still look like new. White convertible top is in very good INTERIOR: Very nice inside. Theres no rips or tears. All the white upholstery, door panels, armrests are in great shape. Visor has tattered edge. Carpet looks practically new, has embroidered floormats. The dash area is really nice no cracks or damage. Its loaded up with options. Down in the center console it has the Hurst dual gate shifter which is cool and nostalgic. It also has the rally pack gauges and tick tock tachometer. In addition to that if it has a sport wheel on a tilt column, power windows, power trunk release, factory Am-Fm radio. Currently theres a custom CD stereo mounted neatly under the dash with kick panel speakers and a ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has a 455 motor that runs real nice, its painted the correct blue color. Everything looks tidy- the brackets, inner fenders, core support, fan shroud. It has power steering and brakes. Factory a/c car and its complete. Needs to be serviced, the previous owner hasnt used TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Really clean metal and the trunk compartment has a good coat of spatter finish paint.

The frame, rockers, lower inner 1/4s are all real nice. Up front it has disc brakes, steering components look good. It has the F-41 suspension which includes sway bars and boxed control arms. Bottom of motor and the Turbo 400 trans look spotless. Several components look replaced- starter, brake and fuel lines, brake hoses, e-brake cables, dual exhaust, shocks Ive always been a 442 fan.
