The build process begins. The car has been completely disassembled, frame has been sandblasted and repainted gloss black. I have placed the car body back o... Show moren the frame, and am prepping to fix the rust on the rear quarters and on the rear end.
Body work done on the rear end, primed and painted the cars new color: XXXX. Also painted the trunk lid.
Doors and front fenders painted and along with trunk all on the Matador. I moved it outside to get a look at my progress in the sun since it was such a nice day. Show Less
Starting to build and install the engine (thats one of my parts cars in the background of the engine pic).
Now starting to assemble the rest of the engine... Show more since block and heads are on. This is the cross ram air induction. This is the precursor to what every car now uses.
I didn't have as many pictures as I thought of the engine build. Here then is the engine as it is now. Also, I painted and installed the dash as well.
Until I can dig out more pics of the Matador while I was building it, I guess I'll go ahead and post pics of where I am at now. I have been waiting on a few chrome pieces that go on the back and hope I will have them soon. At this point, that is about all I am lacking from having it compltely done.
Interior shot of dash as well as the rotating seats (stock) that turn and rotate out as you open the door. Show Less
