Been reading threads for some time and decided to get involved.
Bought a new 69 out of high school with L78, 4 sp, no ac, no ps, black on black. Had a ball with, got engaged and needed furniture. Sold it for $1700 in 73.
Found a clean Yenko clone, 350/auto, great driver - could have done without SYC stripes. Just drove it for 2 years while I built a 2000sf garage to rebuilt it in. Put it on the lift a year and a half ago, hasn't been off since.
Put in DSE mini tubs, fit TCI tubular front sub frame, TCI 4 link, subframe connectors. Removed all of it, just got back from powder coater. Got 2 coats of extreme black primer under neath, 2 coats of gloss black go on this weekend.
Have aluminum core support/radiator being made, hope to get old core support out without disassembling front sheet metal and reinstall new one before putting subframe back in.
572/6 speed to replace 350.
Hope to have it running this year, drive and enjoy for a while then blow it apart for paint.
