Picked the car up from a young guy who started to restore it. Engine is a 351C V2 (not original) C6 Trans, dual exhaust.

Work done:
Heads rebuilt
Floor panels replaced (rear)
Sound and heat barrier on floor roof
New Carpeting
Replaced Seat belt warning switch (yes...I'm crazy like that!!! Thanks David)
Weather Stripping (nearly complete)
Added the NOS Mach 1 Grill.

It's just a sports roof - but it is cool!!!

A lot done and a lot more to go. Have fun and take your time and do it right the first time it will pay off in the end.

Thanks everyone. Lot more has been done since that submissions. The 351c is now bored .040 and the crank saved a bit too.

I've assembled the engine and it's back in the bay. Still have to hook up the training and install the other "make it go" stuff.

Thanks again.
