It is a 383 4-speed car.No power steering or brakes.Pretty no frills car.Fender tag was gone when I got it,numbers drivetrain was also long gone.So I am going to customize it.I will keep the body stock with the exception of a lift off hood I love those! the car will look factory with subtle upgrades for driveability safety etc.It has the 11.75 disc upgrade that I will post pictures of in a few days.This weekend I am doing the rear brakes.Rounded up all the stuff I nned for some 11 inch drums that will complete the rear.Lots more pics to come

Here is the wheel tire combo that I will be using.Got some new wheels on my 70 challenger so pulled these and put them on to see what it would look like.What do you guys think so far?

Car looks great.

You are obviously much more graceful around the shop than I am. If I left my grill on the floor, I'd step on it for sure.
