History
Bought it locally from a classic car dealer, he hadn't had it too long. Motor had antifreeze gelled, needed clean out. I pestered him enough I think he sold it just to shut me up....lol
He'd had the body painted, radiator repaired.

Installed what appeared to be it's first stereo. Amp and sub in trunk, speaker mounted hidden under back deck. Two box speakers mounted on top of back deck. Still have trouble hearing stereo over exhaust and road noise.

Wheel and Tire
Switched to American Racing, I'm staying with old school 14's, however my tire size choice had a slight trouble of rubbing on the front fender edges, had to fabricate a small extension on the bracket to push fender out a bit from front of tire.
