Looks like you are taking the long route to fill a few scratches! I respect your ambition. How much time do you have in it so far, and when do you plan to have it complete? I am looking forward to seeing the after pictures!

Good Luck on the restoration and please keep the pictures coming.

Are you going to be rebuilding the engine or doing any upgrades on the engine as well?

Thanks,
Prostar Rich

i rebuilt the engine already only reason is cause the previous owner chipped teeth on the cam shaft and the only thing that was done is replaced the distributor so i had to pull all the guts out of the engine and rebuild it that way its not the best looking engine but it does the job

Just kidding. Have fun with the resto. I assume you're going to do the trailer too? Sand blast and powder coat it, then add some LEDs and and nice wheels.
