Modifications

Drivetrain
194 with only change of adding Weber 38/38 carb and HEI ignition out of 76 Nova with outboard coil. Runs good but is not a fast car at all. Will pull from 1000 RPM in high gear surprisingly well.
Interior
Clean, couple of scratches on dash, not too bad. Has seat covers, don't know what shape seats are underneath covers. Suspect worn out so is why set covers where installed.
Exterior
Original paint, Silver Blue. Car has 111, 000 miles on it. Paint faded and has a couple small bubbles and rust, nothing bad.
Audio
AM FM mono radio. Sent face plate to guy who put it on front of a AM FM mono radio. Run radio into stock speaker in dash.
Suspension
Rebuilt entire rear end including bushings, bearings and 4.10 posi rear end. Had rear housing and backing plates sandblasted. Rebuild entire brake system. Put in new U-joints and front wheel bearings. Cars front end in really good shape. No slop in steering and stops and steers straight when let go of wheel.
Wheel and Tire
15X7 Ansen 4 lug Sprints front and rear. 185 65 15 Cooper Tours front, 205 70 15 Cooper Tours on back.
