This car houses a 351 2V V8 powerplant with an estimated 175 HP and has less than 23,000 miles! This car was traded in at River Oaks Ford in 1974 and owned by the Hennessy Family ever since.

The winner of this classic American muscle car will be chosen on the final day of the Auto Show – Monday, February 19th.
