Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock 327 and power glide. Plans call for electronic fuel injection & ignition. The "slip & slide power glide" will be replaced by a modern overdrive tranny. We want dependable & easy to drive.
Interior
Sometime in it's life the blue interior was replaced with gray leather and a CD stereo cut into the dash. We plan on keeping the gray leather, but will update the rest of the interior.
Exterior
stock.
