She had been re-quartered in the early 80's using junkyard quarters. Outer wheel wells were cut and the 'new quarters' were riveted on. The donor quarter wheel wheels were sandwiched onto the original cut wheel wheels. Floor and trunk was toast. Every exterior panel was removed and replaced. New drip rails were fabricated from 1968 Chevelle drip rails. New cowl shoulders and inner cowls were installed. All the sheet metal work was performed by John and Dan Truman of Truman Muscle Car Parts. True craftsmen,,

Interior
Interior was pretty much gutted. The Strato buckets in the vehicle were garbage, frames were pretty well rotted. Rear seat was in decent shape and will be serviceable. Console needed a little TLC. Dashboard was intact , 100% correct with blinker tach. And gauge package. It's about the only thing that was intact and untouched. Minty 67 GTO buckets were purchased and will be re-upholstered.

In-Car Entertainment
Want need a good AM/FM Bluetooth stereo to fit it the stock dash and bezel. Speakers will need to fit in original dash location and rear deck. Open to suggestions. PM me!
