Update: Most likely, hen the previous sellers did a portion of the resto-mod, ncluding a complete engine and trans swap, he gauges were swapped. I was told me the mileage was accurate when I purchased. There were portions behind the dash that were replaced prior to my ownership. In addition to the engine and trans, uch of the front end has been restomodded, ncluding steering and suspension. And, es, C was also upgraded and modernized. I live in Nevada, here it can get into triple digits in the summer.
