^ I sent an e-mail directly to Moto Exotica asking about the engine. Maybe they're just confused but that seems strange for those guys.
Here's a Bluestine asking $35,000 OBO. 1958 Belvedere. The custom seats look pretty cool.
Engine is a 318 V8 2 Barrel Carburetor. Torque-Flite -- Fully automatic 3 speed Push Button transmission. Silver and Blue color combo Exterior trim package (Sportone side trim filled with a contrasting paint color0, Radio, Custom Upholstery, Carpeted interior and trunk, Stainless steel wheel covers, White wall tires. The Plymouth was stripped to bare metal, frame repainted, engine and tranny repainted by the previous owner. Still needs some work to make this car right.
Either the seller is wrong or the engine is wrong,
It's the seller, here's the e-mail I got back ...
The eBay advertisement is wrong and I can’t make any changes because of the bids on the car . We have verified this vehicle to have a numbers matching L-350 in the vehicle. We got the numbers off the block below the distributor.
These old cars look so damn nice,I gotta wonder what the fuck happened?
Sad to say, progress happened, not just to cars, everything. Why are there 200 year old houses still standing but new houses are falling apart within a year? Why do RCA TVs from the 50's still work today but that monster Toshiba you bought in Walmart only last 2 years, maybe three tops? It sucks but it is what it is.
I'm sort of looking for one of these, preferably running, and drivable, but in like how he first found the car in the movie. Not because I want to make a killing restoring it, but because thats all I can afford. Any leads are appreciated.
