Car lived in Arizona for 40 years, Fla 3 yrs and now in Maryland / Delaware.

Have reworked suspension (2012), new crate GM 350 HO 330 hp engine (2013), Ford 9" installed summer 2013. Rome wasn't built in a day nor will "WHITEY", she'll take a few years I work for a livin' with too many children & grandchild. Great things come to those who wait. TKO 600 2014 winter & supercharger someday but time will tell.

Modifications

Drivetrain
New GM 350 HO 330 hp crate motor, New Vintage AC & Heat system works great! New HO alternator, new HEI distibuter, Headers long tube, lots of new wiring looks great! Auto Ronnie did the work! Battery in truck works nicely and lots of room under hood. I have a amp & sub under back lid in truck. Still has original sticker under truck hood for spare tire changing, cool!
Interior
Nice stock original survivor interior, Medium Blue with VINTAGE Air, . Set or 3 gauges under dash and Tach on steering column.
Exterior
Ermine white original color, now a white w/ a touch of pearl.All original sheet metal, one paint job since orig, no rust issues! I would like to replace orig glass with new glass (seems orig) & felts, weatherstrips seen better days. Will tighten up the door hardware prior to next paint job. Nice car it took me years to find one in this orig condition that was kept inside its entire life.
Audio
Before and after Upgraded stereo system with replica CHEVY am looking but it has all the bells and whistles of new system IPOD, USB and fit in original dash opening. It is from BOISE SOUND, Nice stereo, Kenwood amp and Kicker sub in trunk, love it! Stock original interior in great shape for 50 yrs old! I will replace new carpet and redo the glass and felts changing interior to all black will look awesome!
Suspension
CPP all new performance kit and sub frame kit, new shocks and all new brakes with discs upfront (early Chevelle type kit), rear drums orig. Runs good for 1964 technology with upgrades.
