Alan, I cannot thank you enough. This has been a long process and difficult to get it where I wanted but without sacrificing the history, integrity or character of the car but I think I have done it.
The story behind this car is truly one for the books and like a bear after a long hibernation it is ready to hunt!

The testing session went well. Only issues were the clutch and alternator belt. We knew the clutch was marginal at best for the application so it's no heartbreak.
Drove straight as a string, brakes worked great & overall I give it an 8/10.

Alan,
Everyone loved the car at Woodburn last Saturday. I must have told the story a dozen times starting when you got it outta the grass in the early 70s to now.

Thanks Alan, the car has such great character, history & meaning. I just couldn't change that.
Yes, they are the same bumpers. A buffing wheel & some truck polish made em pop!
