This 1970 time capsule won Bloomington Golds Survivor on June 14th 2007.
 
There is only ONE place to get a legitimate and authentic Survivor Certificate. That’s Bloomington Gold. Owners who earn the Survivor award are welcome to advertise or describe their cars that way. All others are not. That’s the value of having this Certificate.

Survivors are cars that are at least 20 years old and judged to be over 50% unrestored, yet with finishes and condition good enough to use as a reference model for authentic restoration of a car just like it.

This 1970 has all options listed above. It also only has 76,000 original documented miles. There is paper work on this car all the way back to mile 4 at the dealership. Amazing! This car is rare because it is the last of the 454 high horse power big blocks. Plus Automatic trans make it an even better combo. Certified, Rare, Documented, Fast, and all the Options. Does it get any better? How many do you think are left in this condition?
By the way this car sounds and runs awesome!
