This will be my first actual car build and am pretty excited. Love learning about the car and improving my skills in the garage. I'm a little bit overwhelmed, but I have two hands and a heartbeat so it makes me fully qualified for the job.

Here is how my dad found the car. Couldn't say no a 2 door fleetline, and my dad owned a 4 door growing up.



Here is where it sat for a couple years until I finished my Camaro and made room in my garage






The 216 has seen better days.


Putting in a 1959 235 .040 over, 848 head with a bulldog hydraulic cam from Tom Langdon. Dont know what I should do as far as an intake/carb setup as of yet;200-4r with a 3.73 10 bolt soon

I like it as a project. They are pretty cars.

I suspect it would be a great candidate for one of the new complete floorpan assemblies.

Be sure and keep the pictures coming so we can follow along.
