Vehicle Overview

Purchased from West Virginia USA in 2018 and imported into the UK. So far I have had paintwork to the body, changed the transmission, from a troublesome 700R4 to a trusty TCI STREETFIGHTER GM TH350 had the rear Ford 9inch axle rebuilt with taller 3:1 gearing and new LSD for more economical cruising, and presently I am installing a Holley Sniper 550/516K EFI Fuel Injection.

Future Plans

To keep the car in show condition and drive it. Possibly lower the car and put the suspension on air bags.

    In the UK due to Corona Virus situation here -I have been laid off work for 12 weeks. During that time I have been installing a Holley Sniper EFI. I have removed two 500 cfm removed twin fours on an Edelbrock manifold, so I have replaced the intake manifold with a Hi-RISE VICTOR JNR Single Plane manifold. I have raised both the alternator and air conditioning pump to allow access to the water inlet and temp sensor positions. I hope to get it running in the next few days?
