This is my first classic car. Always wanted one. When I saw this mostly original survivor, I jumped on it.
Options: 273 V8, 904 Auto, Power Steering, AC, vinyl top, 10" drums, AM radio.
Modifications: Tachometer, Dual exhaust, Aluminum radiator, black vinyl top, radial tires.
It's been repainted original color once. Original dark green vinyl top replaced with black. Carpets replaced. I'll probably re-core and put the original radiator back in. I want to keep it mostly original but make some modest changes.
Future: HEI ignition, 4BBL carb and manifold, warmer cam, maybe a higher stall torque converter, 8.25 or 8.75 Sure-grip w/ 393 gears, front disk brakes (ones that will fit under the stock 14x5.5 rims).
I'll drag it occasionally, just to calculate HP and see what gains I can get. It was a 17 second car when new, so expectations are set accordingly
