If you bought the car out of Atlanta recently... yes it is a pre X code Z... I actually won the bid on the car the first time he auctioned it on ebay and then he did not like the price it brought with the no reserve auction... $2850...and he refused to sell it to me... You only paid $2500 for it though ... I was looking at the car and it has a good bit of the original paint on it. It also has a set of matched 15" ralley wheels date coded for the car. It is a muncie car with the original white overspray down the firewall... Supposedly the car has 42k miles.
It has the fast ratio manual box in it... the car was out of Asheville NC and the 302 supposedly went into a street rod.
