This is an old pic taken about 20 years ago, when she was in her prime. This is how the car was done up by my dad in the early 80s, it was an award winning lowrider then. He was the second owner, buying it around 1975. He gave it to me when I turned 16. Of course it didn't look like this. Now its ready to be restored and done up in style again.
This is what she looks like now, after years of neglect. There has been alot of work done to restore her, but still alot more is needed.
A rebuilt 350 turbo hydromatic tranny was the first thing to be replaced in 2000, like most older cars the reverse was shot.
In 2005, a 350 rebuilt sbc was installed.
I know she don't look like much, but she runs like a champ.
Future plans include, rebuilding the front and rear suspension, paint, and interior, along with some cosmetic work to the engine(dress-up kit and chrome), more pics to come
