Just a quick update well after two years of owning this car it's had some major charges the turbo engine is now gone and is running a
N/a 383 stroker turbo 400 and 9 inch diff
All the interior has been redone along with many other things the cars still going and still tons of fun too drive.

Looks tuff, but I'm not sure if I prefer the sleeper more or this. How fast are you expecting to go?
