Vehicle Overview

Got the car 3 years ago. I got everything working and been slowly making it dependable. Replaced all door and window seals, rebuilt wing windows, I must say that was a challenge. Re-worked all power windows and got them functioning. Then, I replaced the old tired 352 Cu. with a Mercury 410 Cu. Bored 0.30 over. So, I guess it would be more like a 413 Cu., with a little cam in it. Got rid of the old heavy intake manifold, for a Edelbrock Performer intake. Had the Ford-O-Matic Trans rebuilt to handle the new power plant. Up-graded the old generator with a new 3 Wire Alternator setup. Rebuilt all front end steering components and the old style power steering Ram and Control valve. Replaced old power steering pump for mid 70’s style. Currently, a half coil is cut out on the front and 2” block added to the rear to get the right stance. Got plans to put air ride on it in the future. Just bought the new 17” US Steelies, 8” in Front and 9” rear. At this moment I am installing Holley Sniper EFI.

Future Plans
