I took a 76 LT from rust machine to a complete new body... frame blast, rad cradle, front wheel wells, fenders, rocker panels, floor pans, quarter and door skins, trunk floor etc. etc.
The interior was in great shape, took off the LT emblems and chrome trim around doors, pulled engine.. rebuilt (350) and quadrajet, put in mild cam, alum intake, headers, stage 2 shift kit with stall converter and a few other goodies. I popped in my Alpine system,.. I guess what I'm saying is originally I bought the car to drive around, and ended up spending much more than I anticipated.. moral of my story.. It is a sweet looking sleeper that I can still drive daily and it was a process that I learned alot about cars and restoration, so when I find that dream '67 I'll be much more prepared for the restoration. I will post a pic of the car shortly and you can give your opinion of it.
