I recently drove from NC to Nebraska and picked up this 69 (X66) project for my wife. It was her 40th b-day present. Now comes the fun. The car is an original 396 4speed car originally bought in NE and has been there for past 40 years (August born car).
The plans are:
semi-stock, semi pro-touring.
Car will be lowered with Hotchkis front and DSE rear leafs, DSE tubular uppers, Baer brakes and 18" wheels.
Interior will be mostly stock, except MAYBE aftermarket dash. Wife has to decide.
Trans: T400 (wife wants auto). I will continue to try and convince her to go manual, but not working so far.
Rear: Original 12 bolt, 3.07 gears (tru-trac)
Going back with original Glacier blue paint and blue interior
Leaving it as a spoiler delete SS396
I just finished building a body cart. I liked how Mike Riggs from Mikes Custom Cars designed his body cart, so I made one like it. I have to gusset the legs, but I will do that this week.
