History
This was my best friends car in high school, after we graduated he parked it in his dad's garage and it sat there until I rescued it 25 years later. We drove that car all over Northeast Iowa in the early 90s, we even drove it from home through Washington D.C., New York City, and to Niagra Falls before heading home to start our senior year of high school in the fall of 1991. Right before it was parked, we removed the original 350 and replaced it with a 327 he had acquired.

Modifications

Drivetrain
327 out of a 68 Impala, Edlebrock 600cfm carb attached to an Air Gap intake. It has a slightly more aggressive than stock cam installed, but that was 25 years ago, I forget the specs. Stock 350 heads, with headers. Upgraded the points ignition to a Pertronix Ignitor, paired that up to a MSD 6AL-2 box.
Interior
Inside was originally dark green, but has been changed to black, removed the bench seat and replaced with ProCar rally seats, removed the column shifter and installed a B&M Pro Stealth Ratchet, surrounded by a custom center console with integrated tachometer, temperature, oil pressure, and water temperature gages, even has cup holders!
Exterior
Original paint was gulf green, but was painted black in the summer of 1990. Painted by Magic Touch Detail in Lanett Alabama, House of Kolor UK11 over BC01, candy apple red
Audio
Retrosound Long Beach, added some Kicker 6x9s in the package tray, Rockford Fosgate 500W amplifier and a matching 10 inch subwoofer.
Suspension
Stock, replaced springs, shocks, ball joints, tie rods, bushings, replaced entire brake system except the brake booster. Front disc, rear drum, rear end is a peg leg 3.08 out of a 71 Monte Carlo (ask me for the story on how this got in there)
