-Aquired: late 2002. Built from two separate cars (purchased together.. ’70 and a ’72).

-From: The cars were actually out of a junkyard that closed down and they were liquidating what was left.

-In The Works: After doing a quick engine pull to lay in some fresh paint, clean up some electrical, and do a hefty cam swap in 2006, I finally finished bodywork and paint in early 2008. Next up is finalizing interior while continuing to upgrade to high performance



-Power: 383 Stroker – MSD HEI ignition, 4bbl Carter AFB 650cfm carb, Edelbrock “Performer RPM” intake, rollers

-Transmission: TH350, 2500 Stall – shift kit, B&M QuickSilver “ratchet action” floor shifter

-Aquired: late 2002

-Project Status: Never Done! Long ways to go
