History Started life as an Ash Gold Straight 6 powerglide car.
I picked it up a year ago as a roller, no engine no trans, but had been previously equipped with a 502/4spd and still retained the 3 pedals and misc linkages.

Built to be a burnout machine, and it does exactly that very well!
Eventually we'll make it pretty, but for now I'm just happy to have a fun toy to play with.

11/22/17- I have been carefully removing the farm implement green & primer paint from the car using a combination of laquer thinner & wetsanding to reveal the last (not original) coat of metallic gold.... So far so good. I vastly prefer the worn patina look to the primer and green.
