To start off, this car IS an upgrade from what I had. Plus all the missing parts (body parts, engine and tranny) I have sitting in my garage. For I had expected to replace those parts on my old LeMans, so I am good there.
Now to answer your questions. No, not original color. Original color was white. It is an automatic, with a Hurst dual gate his/her shifter. It has a 10-bolt rear end. No it did not come with an engine, tranny or drive shaft, but I have a 1972 400 YS code engine with 7K3 heads and a Turbo 400 tranny to go in it for now. Sadly, although this is a true 242 car, it is not a numbers matching car.
When I put it all together it will be that red color with black top and interior. My last car was consumed with rust damage. The floors and quarters were simply horrible. But it also had severe frame issues and almost every body part needed to be repaired or replaced. The only good parts were the doors and trunk lid. So this new car is truly an upgrade.
