well I just purchased this car about 6 months ago from a buddy i work with. his wife had it sitting in a barn for 10 yrs or so. i snatched it up for $800. it was all original and actually ran decent after a carb and battery swap. it had a 305 bolted to a turbo 350. it came with t tops and the original vinyl slips for the glass. body has 1 small dent in the rear panel not creased thank god. rockers are gone on driver side good on pass. doors need work on bottoms and all new seals. after i got it drove for awhile it was kinda sluggish so i swapped engines. my father had a 350 that was rebuilt by a machinist here had put in forged pistons new roller cam and forged crank(specs unknown (he doesnt remember :) )) it was built about 8 or 9 yrs ago and was dropped in his 72 nova but was hardly ever driven. he eventually got a 396 and put the 355 to the side. i finally talked him into giving it to me. and that where i am at tranny will be rebuilt. im putting on all new distributer cap rotor and accel super stock wires and this bad boyh should fly
