My Car
73 loaded Q code car w/a 351 4v C6 it came with 2 cars in parts.
I'm semi retired; which means that I spend an average of 50 hrs a week working on various car projects. I've been doing a complete rebuild of a 73 Mach 1. I bought 2 cars in parts and have been selling off parts to assist in the build price. I started out with a Q code 73 Mach1 & am selecting the best parts for the project. It came as a brown on brown car. I switched out the interior to a black interior that is loaded with all the features I'd ever want. I ended up painting it Grabber blue w/ black accents. I switched out the front fenders and converted the "heavy" 73 urethane bumper n brackets to a 71 assy. in order to save @ 100lbs of weight. I have detailed photos w/descriptions of every stage of the project. I built the C6 w/mods necessary to handle up to 500 hp. The 351 4V motor is utilizing features like H beam rods and forged pistons. This was a loaded car, however, even with the factory high output suspension package it doesn't have a posi. I will be adding a posi with a 3:91 gear. If you have any problem areas with your own build, I covered all of the car. I do all of the work myself, except machine work and front end alignment.

Welcome, Paul. That's a lot for a semi-retired, is it more of a hobby than work?
