Ok here it goes just picked up a 73 Malibu with a 350 under the hood. The body is in good shape but interior needs alot of work.

Didn't know what I was getting into when I picked this car up but I quickly learned just how hard parts are to come by.

I plan to go as far as my feeble skills will take me and document it all here.

After a week of digging think I may let a custom shop here in Houston build interior trim for me.

you may want to downshift a gear and do some homework before throwing money at it. i would suggest getting the brakes in top shape as a first task, and thats after doing the homework on that too. the options for mods are endless these days.

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.

Welcome to CT! I agree with Bob ... considering the interior issues, if you haven't already, check out the rest of it to be sure it is worth the time & money....

That noted, sure looks to be one heck of a car ... I like that blue color!
