Upon stripping it down, we found the body was so bad, we choose to replace rather than repair. A new body was purchased and that did take a considerable about of time to get it to fit properly. Poor reproduction quality. We mini tubbed it, small block got fuel injection, and a 5 speed TKO trans, All chrome and glass, and custom interior. 1 year to restore.
After tear down and blasting, Chassis built up w/13″ Wilwoods, Ride tech coil overs and rack and pinion steering. 495 HP LS3 GM Perfomance crate engine
Full restoration of body and paint, interior
This vet took 6 months to restore, fuel injection and a 5 speed manual trans, body paint and chrome. Took his gas mileage from 10 miles P/Gal to 21 Miles P/Gal. He was very pleased with that
