About

Well, I figured if I couldn't afford a real one to take to car shows, then I would build one myself. I spent about 3 months on this, due to the fact I needed warmer weather to paint. I finally finished it on March 19, 2008. It uses no gas, and I can transport it anywhere I want for free. This is pretty much what I would like to actually purchase.

Specs

195 HP/ 255 FT-LBS TQ
305 CID V8 - 4 BBL Rochester carb
Turbo-Hydramatic 350 three speed automatic
7.5 inch rear end with 3.42:1 gears and a limited slip differential

Factory Options

Bucket seats
Full gauge cluster including tach
Dual exit exhaust
Vinyl tonnue cover

Mods

Pretty much stock, except for the color. The color is Autumm Gold metallic, picked straight from the optional colors for a '70 Chevelle.
