Modifications

Drivetrain
This is how it looked when we got her. Going to original signature valve covers. Picked up a correct 4bl intake and we are going to use an Edelbrock 600cfm carb on it at first. Otherwise the plan is to keep the rest stock....but detail it up to a better state.
Interior
Needs little things. Rear package shelf, front seat needs foam and recovered, one arm rest cover....other minor odds and ends. Getting a good scrubbing now.
Exterior
Except for larger tires....the only deviation is the dual exhaust. The windows are tinted, but removing that is on the to-do list.
Audio
The car is a radio-delete.
Suspension
We might eventually upgrade the front sway bar and add a rear one. Eventually we will upgrade the brakes too, but right now they are adequate.
Wheel and Tire
Original Spare. We're running 225/70-15 Cooper Cobras on the steelies and will run poverty caps. 2nd photo is with caps. Three came with the car, but only one is good enough to be called 'driver quality'. We don't want new because the car has plenty of natural character we're trying to preserve.
