Alright i showed my car off in the introductions so i figured i would start a thread very detailed lots of pics on my way building it up so ill start it off with some pics (view attachments)

 

while i only paid 650$ for the car running and driving (i took the fenders off). I have 4 fenders so i can choose the best for when i paint it got a few deck lids lots and lots of parts. i was making a wish list on summit of performance parts i wanted to get (this was before i picked the car up) and i got the there was a grant gt steering wheel hooker long tube headers a bunch of the stuff i had on my list (i thought the car was bone stock) so all in all im very happy. This week im gonna start sanding it all down for paint (ill take pics of progress). my goal it to make it how i want it fix any issues and make a sweet car. Its gonna be a white with flat stripes on the side modeled after the mach 1.

 

any comment or help very welcome and thanks to some of the members who already helped

i almost jumped up and down when i saw the long tubes on the car saved me 300+$

 

 

Had some for about 8 years. They will come off and be replaced by shorty headers as soon as I get around to it. I want the ground clearance back!

Sounds like a great project, Adam. You may want to start a Wiki blog to document your progress.

got my car running better today. I also pulled and fixed the stock wiring harness there was no power getting to the coil so no spark so i got all that fixed. i have good oil pressure and fixed the alternator so got a nice amount done i can now start and shut it off with the key. only engine thing left is a nasty leak (the choke coil plate) once thats fixed it will be perfect than move onto floors.
