1972 R Code HO Mach 1
1973 Q Code Convert 4sp
I got this car in 2021 after a guy put a lot of money in it turning it into a bit of a Street Outlaw car with a 408 Stroker and a five speed Tremec. The car was mechanically all new but appearance was rough but no rust. It had been a California car. He shipped it to me from Orlando area and sent the original trans and numbers matching engine with it.
I ordered the Marti and unbelievably the car was one of 293 produced in 1973 with the 351 CJ 4 speed combination. Since then we have gone through the car and put the original motor back it and left the Tremec. Have a NACA hood but have not painted it yet. Having fun with the current look.
Rebuilt numbers matching engine
5 speed Tremec
New suspension
New Brakes
New interior w/ Dakota dash/bluetooth
Vintage Air
New Canvas Top / glass window
New TA radials and rims
Borgeson Steering conversion
Paint work on hood door jams, trunk,
bumpers
Took it down to Detroit Autorama Mar '23 and entered it with my '71 M code 4speed. I was the first car in the hall!
We took two second place finishes. It was a great show.
Next I will post about the R Code project.
