Totaly rebuilt the front and rear suspensions including powder coating the frame, inner skirts and core suport. Installed an energy suspension bushing kit, new brake rotors etc.





And that is where it sat till last fall while we bult up an engine for it.

I traded for a tired 383 stroker motor with a fresh m21 muncie. We rebuilt the motor and installed it last fall. Then hunting season started and we didn't touch the car again till January of this year.




Hands on learning... the best kind for a young car guy
