Both are 100% Original except for Tires and Batteries. It might help with your restoration of you need to know where anything goes under the hood or elsewhere. The Red one has 27K miles and the Tan one had 15K when I sold it in March of this year.

WOW! I recall a guy at work getting one like that new and would envy it as he pulled into work with it.

STAINLESS WORKS. Quite possibly one of the nicest exhaust systems out there. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. If that doesn't suit you, I would really look into CORSA or KOOKS. They are both top-notch exhaust systems.
GOOD LUCK!

I thought it looked good until you showed under the hood!!! lol
Are you replacing the engine? Or doing a clean-up and restore on that as well? The body and interior doesn't look too bad. Not much rust, but it's hard to say until you get into it and start looking under the panels, where the real problems occur. Was this car stored in a garage? If you start work on it now, it could be done for March/April.
Good luck.

im most-likely replacing with a chevy big or small block, there is little rust, but it was stored outside in the elements so there may be trouble, and i want it to be done when all the snow is gone so i hope i make the deadline, and thanks

I would go small-block for a 3rd gen F-body. Big block can be made to fit, but it is a lot of headaches that I don't think you really would want. And they could also mess up your deadline for sure.

Good luck with the restore. That brings back memories. My second Camaro was a 1984 Z-28 with the 5.0 H.0 engine with the Rochester Quadrajet 4 barrel. It was dark blue with 5 speed manual transmission and T-tops.
