    It was bought in the early 70's as a shell. It was a original 340 4 speed car. It had a 70's paint job on it, it was pearl white and pearl green. When it was finished, it had a .30 318 with a 727 reverse valve body with a 8 3/4 rear, it was repainted maroon with silver down the sides. The car sat for a couple of years and has rust in the usual places.

        It probably won't be painted but it would be primered by then.

                You're lucky kegan. AMD has everything you need. I know it will be slow but don't give up on it.

                  I would "restore it" to the way it was in the picture when parked in front of that dealership in the dark red.
                  That car was badass in it's day.......and can be again.
                  Good Luck!!
