History
Bought it 1986
put a new frame under it in 1989
had a 327 /turbo 400 from a 68 Caprice
Suspension mods from H.O. Racing , F body spindles and discs, massive swaybars and global West springs
Had a 100.00 paint job from a friend at a body shop
Drove it and enjoyed it a lot.
Stored it til 98 then started to repair the body.
Put that on hold to build a house . Good thing too, as many new repro parts were produced in the meantime. Ultimately replaced the firewall, entire floorpan with rockers, and full trunk pan, along with a NOS passenger side quarter panel and seamed in a coupe quarter on the drivers side. Repaired the dash/windshield channel and the corresponding upper cowl. I am ready to paint and apply raptor bedliner on the underside then turn my attention to the frame.

Modifications

Drivetrain
TBD
Suspension
Presently the car has F body spindles and disc brakes installed with a conversion kit from H.O. Racing ( in 1989) very large swaybars and global west springs. It really handled well, however I will be upgrading to some newer technology in the near future. I never changed the upper control arms to tubular which meant a lot of shims! That will be also upgraded.
