Vehicle Overview

This car was ordered by my great grandfather in 1973. He ordered it with 245 hp, power windows and aperently a limited slip diff but it only spins 1 tire so I dont know if it really was or if something broke in the diff making it spin only 1 tire. It was driven for a few years then parked in a garage for 36 years. It was taken to some "mechanics" to try get the car to run again and they got it running after they screwed up the wiring (hot leads connected to ground leads) and kinda ruined the interior a little (turn signal has grinding marks on it like they were using pliers or something and it was slipping, and the steering wheel is cracked on the back and has scratches on the front). Then it was given to my dad in 2006 and he's had to fix it quite a bit and do some rewiring, new upholstery, some engine work, and new paint because it was being used to hold boxes and got scratched up. Now my dad is giving it to me, I plan to restore it more (maybe a frame off restoration) and slightly build up the motor. For right now it's my daily to high school and work.

Future Plans

Restore it and rebuild the motor. also a carbon fiber driveshaft because why not.
