General Information

Bright Red
SS Clone
I found this car in a backyard in high school while delivering pizzas. It has numerous wiring issues that I tweaked in HS and was able to drive and have fun. Originally had a 327 with a saginaw 4 speed. After HS I hid it in yards and garages until I finally had my own 17 years later. During 2016-2017 I dove headfirst into a restoration to make it the car I've always wanted. I learned so much and practically redid everything. After yanking the engine I discovered it was from a 1968 truck and unfortunately not original. It had 8/1 compression and was a dog. The transmission was from a 1982 Camaro or Firebird and was beginning to get the linkage stuck in gears. I also had a serious dent in the driveshaft. So much of the car was out of balance you couldn't tell where the various vibrations were coming from. Previous owners had spray painted the interior white and painted the entire car purple and didn't really mask off anything so there was overspray everywhere. But I loved her just the same
