        Car was purchased in 2014 because I love the style of the car. The cars paint is ok,  non-matching numbers, it has problem with the carbs. Nothing special in my books. I drive it for a summer and started to build something much better. Engine and trans were sold. New plans: Re wire the entire car with modern mini fuse panel Fix the hidden rust (sigh) POR15 entire car New driveline Suspension and brake upgrade will come later. New setup is a 5.3 all aluminum LS engine. Its lighter then the orginal 6 cylinder by 100 lbs. Car will be automatic, over drive with paddle shifters. Im getting older and I manual in Toronto traffic. Car will be turbo charged, not sure if I'm going single or twins.
