After some disassembly...
Above is the way you see the car when I bought it.  The car still had all the original paint and interior. Basically a virgin car except that somebody pulled the original 302 and put in a 289....and also removed all the AC components from under the hood (those bast**ds!!) The car ran, but smoked terribly. It only had reverse, and the interior was totally trashed. As you can see, it is quite a project.  I orignally bought this as a parts car...to be stripped and sold off a piece at a time.  Being rust-free from Arkansas...i just couldn't bring myself to do that.......so off we go on a full blown restofication!!!
