    Hello all,
    I bought a '72 Demon in July and plan on fixing it up "Roadkill Garage Style" (mechanical first before cosmetics) and racing it. It's been sitting non-opped since 1989 and has 81K original miles on it. It's a 318 3spd manual care with 8 3/4 rear. I got a smoking deal on it and even talked the guy down $1000 from his asking price :)

        It's actually really solid, it was put up on the frame by stands about two feet off the ground.

              Welcome to FABO, i love the car!
              The second A-Body i ever owned was a '71 Demon 318 3 speed on the floor with an 8 3/4 rear end like yours in 1981.
              it is an awesome combination and a great package IMHO.
              I had a lot of fun with that car and it never let me down.
              I would love to see more pictures when you get the resizing thing figured out, and maybe start a build thread on here.
              Also, I have another '71 Demon 318 that i plan on resurrecting in the future to replicate my old one, but it is an automatic and a Sizzler............

                      Here's a few I've resized. I also bought Jegs seats and Assault Racing electronic ignition system for it.

                      I'll put together a build thread when I have a free moment.
