408ci Stroker, Megasquirt EFI w/Holley 900cfm Throttle Body Injection, Unisteer Power Rack & Pinion Steering, TCP tubular coil-over suspension, Richmond 5 Speed, Mark Williams 35 Spline Rearend

Originally a pale yellow 289ci automatic coupe.

I cut off the original hardtop and can either bolt it back on, install the custom vinyl top, or have her go topless.
