It was driven into that garage in 1985 and parked, never moved again until I recently dragged it out and took ownership.

Lots of plans, lots of work, but hope to share progress along the way...

Thanks!

Was originally an Inca Silver car, with a Powerglide tranny.

P/O swapped it to a 3 speed w/floor shift and did the red paint.

Mine had the silver/black cloud interior but the PO changed the interior to red/black cloud and dyed the headliner black and painted over the original Dust rose pearl and white body to red.

Been busy with life's other requirements and honey-to-do things that seem to sneak up when you aren't looking.

But, I did come across a parts car, a pretty well cannibalized 4-door, hardtop, but does have some good sheet metal I may be able to get patch panels from here & there.

Also was a factory power brake and power steering car with those parts still attached.

Trying to save up a little to have some of the bigger metal work taken care of. Shooting for Sept or Oct for that, I think some of the good sheet metal on the parts car will help there.
