Its one of the rustiest cars I have ever saved. I bought it from a guy I worked with back in 1994, drove it home in Nebraska and parked it. In 2006 I put it on a trailer to get it to Michigan where I live now, and started work on repairing rust. 900+ hours later it is still in bare metal, but at least it resembles a car now.
351C .040" over (probably going to get a stroker kit), 4V heads, Comp Cams 280H, and some BlackJack headers that have been banging around since the late 80s. Its going to be a dedicated E85 engine with high compression and plenty of power.
Doesnt really have a suspension under it, but it will eventually. Probably wont do much other than replace all the stock stuff, add larger swaybars, roller perches, and stiffer springs.
No idea what I will put under this thing, its a ways from deciding that at this point.
Paint, interior, and everything working would be a nice place to start.
