Tried to post pictures,will try again later.The car drives well and the paint and interior are pretty good.But it has tin rot in the floor and somebody had taken a hammer to the firewall in an attempt to shoe horn a big block in it.I think I can handle the the rotten floor but the firewall will be a challenge to repair.

Does it still have a big block in it or has it been returned to a small block? It will be hard to work on with any engine in it.

The big block is gone,it now has a 283 with Edelbrock intake and carb.Your right,the engine will have to pulled to fix the firewall.That will be a good time to do some clean up and painting on the 283.

Just don`t let the cleanup end in a frame off 2-3 year adventure. Look at my pics and see what can happen when it gets out of control just doing a few things.
