Bought my 55 for $1,500 off a guy in AZ. It was barely a shell! I media blasted the body and frame. Added the pocketed rear springs, newer style motor and trany mounts. Had the frame powdered coated and added a nova posi 10 bolt. The engine is a 1963 Corvette 327 - 365 hp with a dontov solid cam and ported heads. It is connected to a super T10 4 speed. The biggest hang-up has been the body work. I was burned by one body shop and now it has been at another for a year. It is very frustrating. Hope to have some painted pictures soon.
