I just figured I'd throw some pics up for s--ts and giggles. Me, my bro and old man had been looking for a classic for a few years now...I found this one online last July, and the seller made an offer we couldn't refuse. We try and take it out on the weekends to local shows when when everyone is free. It's got a .030 over bored out 454 Marine V8, with a 4 speed Muncie, 12 bolt posi rear, power steering and manual 4 wheel drum brakes . We are the 2nd owners of the car, the original owner bought it in 1969...at the time it was a 327 automatic. We've put all new weatherstripping on it, had some holes in the floor panels fixed, replaced some interior chrome trim, and fixed a faulty alternator bracket. The paint is just about 25 years old, and looks pretty damn good short of some dings here and there.
Here's some pics and a little video of the "proper" way to negotiate a highway on-ramp
Here's the video (Don't forget to turn up the volume!!!!! and watch in high quality)
