History
This was purchased off Ebay in 2006 and represented as an original, numbers matching car with some rust. It was as advertised and I have no complaints. It had 162,000 miles on it and was a California car. Very tired, but very original. A perfect mate to my 1970 Chevelle SS and the exact kind of project I was looking for.

from 2006 until I began work on it in 2015 I was able to collect NOS fenders and quarters for it. Work began on the mechanical in 2015 with both the front and rear suspension rebuild, then the motor and trans. Dash was redone as well as body bushings, door hinges and interior.

Bodywork started in July of 2015 and by November the bed and floor were repaired, it was re-quartered and painted. You can see the chronology on www.beldenspeed.com.
