The car is in pretty good shape over all. It was originally built with the idea of 1/4 mile racing. The AC was removed along with other items to lighten the car. The good thing is nothing was cut up, all the parts are there and the only rust on the car is on the hood from where a garage door was closed on it and surface rust from where the vinyl top was removed. the doors, fenders, quarters, and floors are rust free. I know it has a 12 bolt posi with 4? gears. The auto transmission has been gone through and it has roller rockers. That's all I could find out about the car until I tear into it this spring. The car belonged to my brothers good friend's great nephew and the nephew passed away before he ever raced the car. Its been sitting since 1999.
I'm debuting on 2 different colors schemes. One would be the original color with a black vinyl top and black interior and the other would be the new Deep Ocean Blue like my 2015 Silverado along with a black vinyl top and black interior.
It will be a frame off job, but not original parts, it's going to be a cross between original and restomod. Modern suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes. I'm leaning strongly towards a 461 stroker with a Fast system throttle body.
Any comments (good or bad) along with advice will be greatly appreciated.
