History
found in a barn in Oregon 20 yrs ago. 3rd owner. PHS documented - numbers matching car. My kids have always called it "the Hot rod" and still think they are Bo and Luke Duke when getting in the car. Happens when you get a real top on the car for first time in 20 yrs.

Modifications

Drivetrain
Took liberty of adding MSD system and open element - otherwise, strictly Ram Air level grind cam. Wanted to run pump gas and be a cruiser. there is literally less than 3 feet of GM wiring left in this car. Installed complete American Autowire harness.
Interior
100% complete - work done by Rich O'Connor @ Rich's Custom Seats in Kingston WA
Exterior
none - needs paint and body
Suspension
Replaced all with factory Moog parts. Converted to front disc brakes (using 15" Rally 2 wheels from a 72 Grand Prix) and kept rear drum. Poly bushings on the front sway bar and rear 4 link.
Wheel and Tire
15" Rally 2 wheels. complete repaint after dousing with Muratic acid to take them to bare metal. P255/60R/15 rear, P245/60R/15 front - BFG T/A's. Yeah, no traction but it rides nice.
