History Of Dabeest

By Jim F.

I am the second owner of this car. This is my first car and I have owned it for over 34 years. It has the original 289 cid engine with over 500,000 miles and has not been rebuilt. On May 26, 2006 this car was involved in an accident and was declared a total loss by the insurance company. I kept the car which now has a salvaged title. I used the money from the insurance company settlement, cashed out a 401K plan (before the market went down) and put my car back together. It is now insured as a collector’s car. My car is now my 401K.
Modifications to the car include a Holly 4bbl. carburetor, dual exhaust with “shorty” headers, mag wheels, an extra large radiator and a new stereo.
