Okay so i bought Betty shortly out of high school. She came originally with a 250 straight 6 bench seat and all the standard stuff that came with a 70 straight 6 nova. I figure it originally was a fire departments car back in the day the original color is a reddish color and has extra radio jacks and cables... i only paid 2000 for her i was lucky enough to give the guy 1000 down and make payments on her. she did and still does need some body work and a new paint job as they guy i bought her from paid for a cheap earl shine job! and she looks good in the pics cuz i was washing and waxing her 3 times a week! haha, from what i could tell most of the stuff on there was original or just very old (suspension, exhaust etc) so i have been doing work on her. Sense i have owned her i have had 3 different engines in her i redid the rear suspension,exhaust and other lil nick nacks. id say i have invest 6k in her so far and that includes the money used in buying her! and worth ever penny:yes: most of the work has been done in my drive way by me and my dad including the first engine swap, sencond swap i was luck enough to have a friend with a engine shop loan me part of his shop and help me out with the engine swap!.... id post pics of before and during but i have a lot so ill post the most recent ones and ill be happy to share the other ones if you guys are interested in checking them out!

Betty as of lately with 3rd engine sbc350 out of a 70 chevelle and alot more done to it than the 1st 350! and all the other work i have done! ( so far i have installed bucket seats, sun pro gauges and a tach on the column, b&M ratchet quick silver floor shifter, edelbrock performance IAS gas shocks in the rear with energy polyurethane bushings and 5 leaf multi leaf leaf springs and other stuff you can see in some of the pics!) sorry for all the pics and the sort of long story BUT i can probably go on for ever lol
