This was a partial re-paint from front fender damage and rear fender damage, we managed to match the existing paint without issues. We had the existing pinstriping matched as well after the car was painted. This ride came in running quite rough, fully rebuilt the dual Edelbrock carburetor setup and now have them staged perfectly. The car would lunge when put in gear as the car was spec’d with the incorrect torque converter for how large this cam was. Rebuilt Th350 and installed a much looser 2800 stall converted now has this running and driving great, it practically pulls the front wheels.
We also found that the existing steering box was not up to the task, we replaced and reinforced the frame mounting points and upgraded to a Vega style steering box. Upgraded the older A/C unit with a newer Vintage air system so nice cold A/C for this Hot Florida ride. Several wiring issues were also found, upgraded to more modern wiring for safety and convenience with a safety battery cut-off switch. Last but not least we fabricated a fully custom truck interior all leather trimmed, upgraded the interior trim pieces to match the existing interior seats as well.
