That was probably the oldest car in the high school lot... by at least 2 decades!

This was my first car. I found it when we went to Southern Illinois to visit the college (1976). I saw the car and ignored the college! Plan was to Hot Rod it. A high shoolers budget and lack of aftermarket support at the time kept any progress other than driving it as it was. Moved to Georgia in 1979 and bought a 350 Corvette Engine for it. Went to college and the engine ended up in my 72 Lemans! Sold the car in 1993 to put a roof on my first house.
