Modifications

Drivetrain
Rebuilt 2 barrel got it started, new fuel pump, heater and radiator hoses, vacuum motor on air cleaner snorkel, plugs, points wires, and valve adjustment, oil change, and she runs like a kitten. 200 HP is just right for this car and it is all original. I replaced the single exhaust with dual 2.5 in pipes with an H pipe and Magnaflow glass packs. I finished them off with GTO style dual tipped side “Pypes” exiting behind the rear wheels. It sounds mean.
No headers because the 3 speed column linkage will not allow them.
Interior
Still working on the interior. Trying to find standard seat material instead of upgrading to full vinyl. Replaced the paded dash, added tach to clock space and Oil and water gages to the left side of the binicle. Still working on original AM radio.
Exterior
5 year old Maaco paint job still in good shape. Car had been garaged since paint job. I had to replace the rear bumper and put the black accent strip between the tail lights
Audio
planning on a stealth bluetooth arrangement mounted in the trunk under the package shelf. Simple amplifier tied to a bluetooth receiver and connected to 2 speakers in the package shelf. Music and volume controlled by my cell phone and navigation plays throught he speakers as well.
Wheel and Tire
Stock Rally wheels and E70 14 tires
