Not yet, still working on cleaning up the interior and painting the trim pieces. Scheduled to be home by the middle of this month.

Sorry for not getting to this sooner, but the car is done!! and home back where she belongs. It is not 100% complete, we still need to re-cover the seats and change the door panels as well as paint some of the interior trim, but my dad did not want to wait another year so we picked it up last month and he has been driving it ever since. But with winter fast approaching it is now resting comfortably in the garage awaiting good spring weather. Here are the pictures. It took over 1 year but was completely worth the time, money and effort from everyone at The AutoDream Group who had their hands on this car ....

Stripe Package put back on, was not an exact match to the original but still looks amazing.

Little details like adding some red paint to outline Hurst, its things like this that show the difference between someone that cares about working on a car and someone that doesn't.

Original rims just re-machined and painted, along with a new set of tires, had to have the raised white lettering

Thank you to all who have been following along, and if anyone is ever in Ontario, and specifically Brampton, let me know and you can definitely come check this car out.

Its a lot of fun. Clutch and gas are real stiff and offer a lot of resistance but it sounds amazing. Only thing need to be careful of is there is no rev limiter on these engines so just need to be cautious when we really get on it. But its a blast to drive. And it gets soo many looks.
