Additional Comments: Unfortunately, I purchased the car without much of the original equipment. However, that let me have free reign to modify the hell out it. I beefed up a 351 windsor by having it bored .060 over, throwing a pair of TFS twisted wedge heads, Performer RPM intake, and roller cam and lifter setup. I topped it off with a holley 650 dbl pumper with a Proform mainbody. Much of the interior is still original except for the Autometer Phantom guages I swapped for the originals. I replaced the tired out steering setup with an independant front suspension kit from Rod & Custom Motorsports. This gave me tubular control arms and coil-over shocks with the beaty of rack & pinion steering. I also had the rear end beefed up with 31 spline axles from mosher and a U.S. Gear diff at 3.50. Rounding out the appearance, I threw on a set of 17" cobra "R" wheels. I had to use adapters, and might consider replacing them with 17" Torque thrust Ds. All together, I am pretty happy with my car. The fact that I did 90% of the work myself makes it even more special to me. People who take thier cars to shops for every little resto project are really cheating themselves out of a good experience. Thanks.
