Project Restomod

What you see here is the first car I ever owned...My dad bought it for me when I was about 11.  It has had many reincarnations in my head over the years.  The project continues to grow as time goes on; what started out as a regular restoration has turned into a complete G-Machine--Something that will hug the corners as well as fly down the drag strip.  My latest idea is to get it looking good on the outside and get it drivable and then start on the hardcore stuff.  I may very well end up putting twin Garrett/AiResearch T3's on the 351C and bolt it up to a Borg-Warner T5 before it's all said and done.  This car is on hold until I find the time to partake in such a huge project.
