  • Vehicle Overview

    Purchased this car in late 2017, and I'm the second owner. It had 41 thousand original miles on it with all of its original interior from headliner to carpet. This car was originally a 225 v6 & st300, open diff 2.92 gears, no power steering, no power brakes and no radio. Had all the original manuals in the glove box with the original owners date of purchase and delivery date. Over the past few years I've performed all of the following upgrades. She now has a 73' 350 out of a Skylark GS, punched 0.030" over, 10.5 pistons, forged rods, steel crank, ported and polished iron heads, big %&%#& thumper comp cam with comp lifters & springs, TA valve covers, TA SP3 high rise intake, 3 core aluminum radiator with electric fan, Holley Sniper EFI with dual sync distributor, hyper spark coil and CD box, mildly built TH350 with deep sump pan and 2 coolers, still the original rear axle except i installed 4.10 gears with a Yukon spring loaded locker and station wagon coil springs with coil over shocks, I've installed power brakes with disk conversion in the front with a line lock, 290 lbs per inch rated coils in the front with a 1.75" sway bar, power steering with a 2.5 lock to lock gear box. Installed a new but retro looking radio with speakers in the stock locations and new kick panels with built-in speakers. Installed a updated fuel tank setup for EFI and 2.5" s.s. dual exhaust system with single chamber Cherry Bomb mufflers, and of course 16" American Racing Torque Thrust aluminum rims. Im currently in the process of installing a NOS system ranging from 50 hp to 250 hp shot.

    Future Plans

    In the works i have a 1966 425 nailhead punched 0.030" with the largest cam offered for the engine, offenhouser dual quad intake, chrome headers, adapter plates to put that nailhead in my A body, bell housing, pedals with linkages and backing it up with a M21 4 speed. Also have a 12 bolt BOP rear axle with 4.10 gears to help put all that torque down but im not sure if it will be strong enough!
