Vehicle Overview

A little over 1/2 way into the build. Keeping the white but paint is only in the back of my mind for now, changing the interior from the factory fawn to black with a factory SS console and Buckets. Church Boys racing front end with their tubular coilovers and rack conversion, Triangulated 4 link in the back with a new Strange 9". Dakota Digital dash, Vintage Air kit, Holley Terminator EFI kit, 4L60e trans. Engine is the ORIGINAL 283 that came in the car when new, bored, balanced and stroked out to a 312 now, Aluminum heads and a custom grind cam, dyno dialed in at 383 hp at 6,000 RPM, pushing it up to 7,500 wi got 424 HP close to 450 ft. lbs. on torque. All engine work was from the guys over at Watson Rupple Performance in Sarasville Ohio. Arizona car that my buddies Dad bought in 1970 and drove it as a daily until 1989 then my buddy played with it until I bought it in March of 2018.

Future Plans

Finish the drive train and everything mechanical so I can put some miles on it yet this year and Power Tour it next year! I'll worry about paint for next winter.
