I saw this car and like it as I have been wanting a Gran Fury. I saw the 125 MPH speedometer and was wondwering if anyone can tell if this is a AHB car or if someone just added that.

Hard to say without further pictures, or maybe even a VIN. Like under hood and rear doors open. Fender tag would also say. It is easy to swap a speedometer in our cars.

It is not a police car. The tip is the chrome moldings on the door sills (at the base of the window).

I'd say you're in luck.  I'd walk away from it if it had seen police duty.

Correct. NOT AHB.

No reason for that. I've owned several that were and currently have one. Great cars, built to last, including engine internals, and take quite a lot of abuse. If it's not rotted out, and you find one priced right, they can be fun cars that handle, brake, and drive real nice. The four barrel cars with 2.9 gears, and lots of HD parts are my favorites, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a solid one!

On the plus side while AHB have some better parts they've also seen more abusive driving and for a lot of them you probably don't even want to think of who's been in them and what they might have done in there.

Crimson Red  :w00t:  I see it has even less options on it then The Cherry Bomb has, but it does have A/C, I could sure use some of those interior parts

I thought that car looked familiar.  It was one of mine.  Definitely not an AHB.
