My 1966 GTO Rebuild

Hey everyone, new to the forum. My names Dave, and im a young guy (17) and I love Pointiacs. Its basicly been in my family since my great-grand-father, down to my grandfather down to my father, my family has ben pontiac nuts and I guess I am too. So the other day I just happen to come across this 1966 LeMans (I know its not a real GTO but I dont have the $$) that I plan on cloning. This is my first project, so bare with me. Here are some pics:

I know it says GTO and its not and all but....You know.

It has some rot at the back window, and a part of the chassis, but its otherwise 100% rock solid. It was garaged for 13 years. Full documentation.
So here are my plans:
Exterior: Deep black paint
Interior: Black
Motor: 400 Crate Pontiac with Tri Power.

Any who, Im not in possesion of the car right now, when I get it at the end of the week, Ill update with pictures and my progress.

Other then that, Any tips?
