The kid I bought the car from said the motor ran good but had no power. Probably due to the fact that its a 305 with 350 heads (PN462824). With the dish piston and 72cc heads it probably has 7:1 compression. So now I guess I'll hunt down some 305 heads so I can get the enging back in and get it running.
Body wise the car has chopped rear lower quarters, a sagging drivers door with some surface (pitted)rust and a little rust hole about 3 inches long on the floor. Also needs fender wells. But all in all its a pretty solid body.
Interior has the usual wear and tear of a 22 year old car as it needs the front seats recovered, the console is gone (may just transplant my Monter console for now), needs headliner but the dash is in great condition (the one bright spot). It has power locks, windows and drivers seat. Need to find a new gearbox for the power seat because it pretty busted up but the motor still works. Go figure.
So the journey begins on another project. Hopefully it a good one.
PS- picking up an '84 parts car this weekend to hack apart. Too much fun for one person to handle.
