You might want to try Year One. Is this the actual car that was purchased or just the same model year? Congrats on your find!

That is so cool man. There's a couple of vehicles I wish I could get my hands on again. Your one lucky dude!

Yeah the car is out at my parents house right now...Im going out there tonight to pick up the eng block im going to use....I might have to email the pictures to someone to get them posted up.....But yeah your right the car is going to need some work...The tech that i work with is going to rebuild the trans for me for free!!!! so that will help out alot....And no it doesnt run it had the 305 TPI in it when i sold it and the kid pulled one head and the intake off and let it sit out side so im going to have to start fresh........From searching around most of the stuff for these cars are pretty cheap besides the T-TOP weatherstripn its like $90 bucks for one side...ouch!!!

But i have a pretty good income...If i can sell my jet ski and pay off a few loans ill have and extra 600 bucks a month that i can sink in to the car plus what i have left over after bills........so if things go the way i want them to id say maybe a year to a year in a half on the build.....**CROSSING FINGERS**
