- the way the cage ties in to the front strut towers and frame tie-ins.
- the motor mounts
- custom aluminum ducting for radiator, oil cooler, and trans cooler
- the roll cage
The car is in a trailer right now so it's hard to get good photos of anything, but it's something to look at.

It is always interesting to delve into the history of these cars. They seem to be so versatile. Keep it alive for sure.

I finally got the car moved out to my shop in Nevada. Here's a picture of it being unloaded from the trailer. I also got bored and decided to throw some Hella lights on it so it would look more like it used to. 11351795_908427569228201_1158947892_n.jpg 41.16KB 0 downloads 11934732_1610597499165118_1896891669_n.jpg 96.52KB 1 downloads
As I look at the car more, I am starting to face new dilemmas. I'm still on the fence about whether I find a way to use the 351w that I have (would need a different oil pan and pick up tube, and a different intake) or sell it and get a 302 instead. If anyone has any knowledge about the 351w and what can be done to put a lower profile pan on it, feel free to chime in. After finding a pan for the 351, I would have to see if it would clear the hood with a carburetor. I think the deck height may still be too high.

So far I've got a magazine feature locked in for this car. I'm working on a few other places to have it featured. I also had a 3d render of the car done so I can start doing some marketing for this car.
