Finished in Sunlight Yellow over White Pony interior. Powered by a 289/2bbl/automatic, was originally an Ivy Green (R code), color, with a black interior. Its options

included a center console, power steering, power top, and automatic transmission. It had an AM radio. During the restoration, removed and replaced the core support, frame support, and right ilmer fender, as well as both front and rear floor pans. Although the body had seen it\'s share of action, only the hood was replaced, with an American reproduction -all other body parts were blasted, repaired and repainted. The \"new\" 5F08C399950 has been retagged, by Marti, with the color code \"V\" in place of the \"R\". \"V\" is the code for Sunlight :is YeHow, a rarely used 1965 color, with a white interior.

The body was stripped and blasted, before being coated with PPG DP-90 Epoxy Primer. The sheet metal repairs were made and then the entire body was reprimed with DP-90, before body work began. After the body work was done, the car was primed, again, with DP-90, followed by PPG filler primers for final block sanding. PPG single-stage urethane was custom matched for the body paint, as Sunlight Yellow was not a regular formula. It is not clear-coated. The interior and trunk were primed and painted, with catalyzed enamel, as well. No trace of the original finish was left. Every component of the car has been redone.
