Purchased it in mid October this year (2006) from employer. At the time he got it from his dad about 4 months before we bought it. He found it would probably be too much for him to take on at this time since he just purchased a 2nd house. His dad owned the car from the mid 80's and it went through 2 of his brothers also.
Somewhere along the way the original engine and trans. got replaced along with all of the seats. The car now has a tired 400 with a 727.
We will be staying with the 400 and going back to a 4 spd. I will be making the car the way my wife wants it. For the most part the int. will be, as close to original as possible I will be installing an instrument cluster with a tach. The body color will also be changed to Yellow and the bumpers and mirrors will also be body color. We will be putting on aftermarket wheels and tires. I'm hoping that in the spring the car can be sent out to be blasted.
I'm hoping it will only take two and a half to three years to get it rolling (I will be doing it all myself engine to paint). I have to time the painting to the weather we live in CT.
