Just beginning the frame-off restomod. Quite a bit of body work to do while on rotisserie. Also sandblasting frame and suspension for a good coat of chassis black. Underside of car will be painted same as lower two-tone. Engine is SBC 427 Stage 5.2 Dart block with AFR heads and Dominator carb for about 625hp, over 500 ft lbs of torque, couple to a TCI 6-speed 4L80E tranny with Outlaw shifter and on to a 12 bolt posi with 3.73 gears.

Car will be two-tone black cherry and champagne. Interior with front buckets from Jaguar, 60 Chevy Impala steering wheel, 63 Impala SS console, Ididit column, and Classic Instruments Belera gauges. Back seat is from a 65 Tbird.

Power disc brakes all around, power rack & pinion steering, lowered 2", and mini tubs.

I am doing everything myself except the upholstery so this will be a long project but well worth every minute to me!
