About

Was formerly my dad's daily driver back in early seventies. Originally came with 235 six and three-on-the-tree. He rebuilt a 283 V8 and installed it in 1972. He parked the car (in a shed, thankfully) in 1975. I pulled the car out in 1999 and began restoring it.

I welded in a rear shock crossmember. The factory rear shocks bolted to the trunk floor (scary!). The rear shackles are extended about 2 inches. That was my pop's doings, not mine! Hey, give him a break, it was the Seventies!
