History
First car I ever bought while in High School.
Started as my daily driver... now my weekend cruiser with occasional trips to the drag strip.
Original color was midnight blue and was equipped with a 350 small block, 4 speed Saginaw, 342 differential ratio, non-posi 10 bolt.
Several upgrades and modifications throughout the years.
