Here's a little summary of the car: Matching numbers car with M21 Muncie 4 speed, 12 bolt rear end with 3.31's. The motor is a 1970 replacement block, 4 bolt mains. It's bored sixty over and the heads have been reconditioned, with new springs, valves, roller rockers. Also has a street/strip cam from Comp Cams to match the springs/rockers/push rods, Hedman hedders, Edelbrock performer intake, holley 750 carb (vacuum secondary), MSD HEI Billet Distributor, MSD 8.5mm wires, Edelbrock High Flow Mechanical fuel pump, 2.5" Magnaflow exhaust. Should make around 425hp-450ft/lbs torque. Keeping it all cool with a Be Cool aluminum radiator and electric fans.
Dropped the car: -2(front) -1 (rear) with springs from OPGI.com, Hotchkis Sway bars front and rear, Competition Engineering adjustable front drag shocks, Edelbrock Adjustable upper controll arms, Hotchkis boxed Trailing arms and factory air shocks in the rear. I recently updated the 12bolt with new seals, bearings, Eaton Posi, Summit rear end girdle/differential cover, and Edelbrock anti hop bars.
The Wheels are 18x8 (front) 18x9.5 (rear) Centerline Retro's. They are wrapped in 235/35R18 (front) 295/35R18 (rear) Toyo T1R Tires.
I upgraded the front brakes with drilled and slotted rotors from OPGI, stainless braided lines, and Hawk performance pads, SSBC Force 10 Calipers and I have plans on upgrading the rear drum brakes to a set of disc brakes in the near future.
This is an older pic of the engine compartment, I've since gone to fabricated polished aluminum valve covers, and run the plug wires under the headers for a cleaner look. I've also replaced the brake booster/master clyinder with a new CPP setup
