History
this car was put together in 1971 in Van Nuys Ca, an employee bought the non SS car, at the factory a big block "package" was installed, 454, TH400 steering link, driveshaft 12 bolt rear. 4 row radiator, ect... At some point in it's history, the 454 died, and a 383 small block crate motor was intsalled. A number of years later, I purchased the car, the 383 spun a bearing, so now I've taken the entire car apart and making it a BEAST! Every nut and bolt has been replaced, a 496 with a 700R4 and all Hotchkiss suspension, Foose wheels, no pics of those yet! I'll add more later!

Modifications

Drivetrain
The hood is not installed yet, but the Motor/Trans is finally!
Interior
The Interior is a HUGE project, I'm adding a cool digital dash that I'm totally customizing, and the SS seats and console with a horseshoe shifter. none of this is in the car yet. all in boxes.
Exterior
I changed all the front metal, I'm still working on the rest of the body now. this is a work in progress
Suspension
All the suspension is Hotchkiss, 1 3/8" front sway bar, 1" rear sway bar, air bags support in the rear, all tubular control arms front and rear, lowered 2+" I've set this up for a potential Autocross contender. We'll see....
