The car is already in Bartlett, IL :)
Brought it home a couple of weeks ago and have had to fix several issues with the lights and do some tune up work.  It has only had 10 mile put on it since 1981 so I am spending a little time making sure every thing works. 

Original 440 was removed somewhere in the 70s.  From the look of the wiring harness on top of the engine they got it real hot so that the harness melted together.  The current block is a 68 383 that seems to run ok.  Will be looking for a 440 to put in. Lots of little things to work on, but you may see if cruising about if you are in the area.

Here is a link to photos of the car as it sits today.  Shows the wiring issue and some of the areas that need work.



Cool pics !  Thanks for sharing. :cheers:

GREAT LOOKING CAR!!!  I love the stripe on it.  This thing looks like it was pulled from a time capsule!  I like it a lot!
