History
I bought this car in 1997. When I got it, it had the original straight 6 and powerglide trans. It had been used as a farm truck or something along that line. The windshield frame and floors were rusted through, which turned out to be the worst of is. The rest of the body was rough but actually not too bad considering the condition of some cars being saved today.

Modifications

Drivetrain
First engine was a straight 6. The second, third, and fourth engines were 454's. The fifth engine was a crate LS3. The current engine is a 408" LS with CNC LS3 heads, custom cam, Holley mid-ram, American Racing SS headers, 3" exhaust w/ X crossover and Flowmaster mufflers, Bowler T56 Magnum, Currie 9" rear, and a Driveshaft Shop dual CV shaft.
Interior
Other than the custom dash, the interior is pretty basic.
Exterior
A bunch of little things have been done such as removing the drip rails, smoothing the bumper bolts, and custom dash (it's starting to look a bit dated now), along with the custom paint.
Audio
A head unit and some speakers.
Suspension
Global West upper and lower control arms (front & rear), ATS spindles and steering arms, custom valved Ridetech shocks, custom made splined front sway bar, custom front and rear coil springs, and Baer 6P brake system w/ 14" rotors (front & rear).
Wheel and Tire
Forgeline SP3P wheels (18x9 front, 19x10 rear) and Bridgestone RE11 tires (275/35-18 front, 305/30-19 rear).
