'83 rebuild

Starting a 'frame-up' resto. Will keep updated as I progress.

Welcome to ZDriver!
The front right fender looks nice... the rest of the car is rust? I completely restored mine (minus paint)... it cost way too much

I will take more pics and post later. Car is straight... no dents, all the glass is perfect; just needs mechanical and cleaning. I bought the car for $250 from a guy in Nashville. He was in the 2010 May floods. I will be taking out the gas tank and interior this weekend. Also will be pulling the head and pushing a camera down in the cylinders to see if the engine is any good. I will be posting as I go.

Well, motor is locked up. Me and my son couldn't get it to spin. So, now he and I are going to spend today deciding whether or not to rebuild this or go with a 383 stroker.
