Vehicle Overview

started as a 68 base coupe with inline 6 200 and a 3spd on the floor. was converted to v8 using an old 302 from a 70's model truck. engine was rebuilt with stock block/crank, forged rods/pistons, mild comp cam, edelbrock rpm air gap intake and trick flow heads with roller rockers. the car was stripped down completely to be restored properly since the previous restore was just new panels over old rusted panels. currently its all welded back together with the only thing original being the cab area (dash, roof, rockers, door frame pillars, rear deck, and axle tunnel). frames were replaced along with doors, quarters, fenders, floors, etc.

Future Plans

currently it has TCI torque arm rear coil-over suspension installed (still working out bugs with TCI for fitment issues), Rod & Custom front Mustang II suspension with power rack and coilovers, Wilwood 14" Superlite brakes 6 piston front and 4 piston rear, Wilwood balance bar pedal assembly with 3 individual master cylinders for clutch, front brake and rear brake. Holley Super Sniper EFI was purchased to convert to EFI with plans to run the car turbo when it hits the road again. body work still needs to be done for paint prep.
