History
I bought the car in October 1992. It was basically a shell with just seats for an interior, nothing else. It came a 230 ci straight six engine with a blown piston. It sat idle in the back of my garage until 2003 when I decided I had better do something with it or just get rid of it.

After a complete rebuild it was ready for the road in the summer of 2006. I ran it with the rebiuilt 230 six until recently when I upgraded to a 283 V8.

The project has been a long haul but worth every bit of the effort. My wife and I drive it to all car shows we attend and enjoy peoples interest in it.

Modifications

Drivetrain
Upgrading from the 230 six to a rebuilt 283. Hope to have it up and running by the end of March
Interior
The interior has been redone but not happy with the results so another attempt will be under way soon. I could use some help in finding the trim inside around the side windows if anyone could help me out it would be appreciated.
Exterior
Color is a 1998 Chevrolet Super Red. Bumpers were all rechromed as well as the hood and trunk emblems, new signal light and headlight bezels, tailights, rocker panel chrome, mirrors.
