New drums, bearings, and brake assemblies were installed last year and the drums were blacked out to give it a wicked look. Brakes work despite the low vacuum produced by the high-performance cam at idle. The car came from the factory painted Cameo Ivory with a black interior, which are retained.
The block is an incredibly rare numbers-matching “77J” block topped off with a set of numbers-matching “9770716″ heads, numbers-matching “9775088″ intake manifold, and three original Rochester two-barrel carburetors, which appear to be numbers-matching as well. The PHS paperwork shows that the car rolled off the assembly line on July 9, 1964. The casting code on the block is “D 9773155 F64″, which means that it was cast during the day shift on June 6, 1964.
