I did a frame off overhaul, much more than a restoration myself. Better than a new car. I spent 6 years, 3 to repair the body replacing both quarters, trunk floor and braces, front pans, most floor braces, both inner and outer rockers, modified the trans area for the 6-speed and did all mechanical work. It has a 502 Ramjet, D&D viper 6-speed, Dennys HD aluminum driveshaft, Dutchman rear end with nodular 9 inch gear housing rebuilt by Mark Williams, Jim Meyer tubular front and 4-bar rear suspension, Rick Rod shop 22 gal stainless tank and all fliud lines, Baer front and rear discs with hydroboost, Kiesler bellhousing and hydraulic clutch, Griffin crossflow radiator with dual fans, March serpentine belt system, Hooker progessive headers, 3" stainless exhaust with Doug header electric cutouts. I did all the sheetmetal, mechanical and paint work except the outside paint and custom leather interior. I have put 19000 miles on this car and love it.
