History
I was told the restoration was done by a man in Bryan for his son, an A&M student and when finished, kid decided he wanted a Scion instead (what was he thinking???)! So, it was passed on to two other owners and now me. I was given this information from the last owner but have since discovered one of the past owners was a member on here, Bud Bill from Round Rock, and would like to know more about the '78 if he sees my posts or someone knows him. He was the owner when it was featured in the 2014 NECOA Central Tx calendar for the month of April.

Modifications

Drivetrain
500ci Cadillac Engine
Edelbrock Performer series 1406 Carb
Hydra-Matic Super Turbine 400 transmission
Interior
Has after market gauges mounted on side of dash console for water, oil and battery. Original gauges work sporadically except for gas gauge so I'm trying to figure out if it's the wiring or the fuel sender. After market stereo system but not a good job done on installation. Jumble of wires all under dash from both issues! Will have to fix that soon!
