History
This car was built in the 70's by a local hod rodder as a tow vehicle for a dragster. It sold to another party in town in the early 90's who let it deteriorate. My father bought it and drove it for a few years until it I bought it in 99.

I drove it for a few years and then decided to swap engines and make it a running project. When I found rust on the floorboard at the gas pedal, I stripped the interior floor and found more rust on the rear floorpans. At that point I decided to put it on hold until I determined how much money I wanted to invest into the car. I also married and my priorities changed. Now I need to complete the car or sell it. I am trying to decide what the value is now so I can determine if I should rat rod it with less expense or wait until I can afford to do a frame off restoration.
