I hope you like it, I have pics of the build if anyone wants to see them. If you wonder why I didn't just restore it, the Martini report showed this born as a 351W 2bbl, PS, PB, FMX, Pastel Gray with a powder blue interior. It was not anything worth restoring back to original so the only way to make it worth while was to modify it.
