History
Purchased from original owner March 2,1985.
Was 6cyl, 3 speed with 234,000 miles. Red with Black interior.
Bought as Daily driver for $1000.

I installed 350 eng in 1986. Kept as Daily.

Parked in 1988. Sat 1989,90.

Early 1991 engine compartment & engine cleaned & painted. New Tires, Rebuild carb, tune, belts, hoses,etc.
Then was my daily driver, only car I had. (wife had own car}

Summer 91 New Paint & tinted windows.
Late 91 New Carpet, Reupholster Seats. Install Stereo.

July 1993 Awesome Wife bought New Vintage Air Conditioning System & Used 5 Speed Trans!
2 More needed gears & Cold Air in a very hot car!

1994 A shelf in garage with starters, carbs, alternators, & other hard parts fell on rear qtr & deck lid. Sickening...

But, still kept as daily till 1995. Summer built shed to store & work on. Then Sept 17th 1995 I pulled Eng, Trans, Unbolted all front sheet metal.

Then, sat untouched until
we moved down the street in Dec 1998.

I towed to new house, built Garage Feb & March 1999.
We pushed it in new garage backwards, put on Jackstands, Removed front subframe & Steering column,
threw a car cover on it & there it sat. Untouched....

Finally, February 2018 removed cover, hosed off, smiled & stared!
Then got my buddy to commit helping with complete build & do Paint & Body!
March 5th 2018 moved her forward & started 1st work in almost 23 years! Very Exciting!

Great deuce! My street 66 used to be a very similar red. Real head turner.
Kudos for still hanging on to your car. I've still got mine and it's currently stripped to bare bones.
