    This is my project. It has a little over 100,000 original miles and was a gift from my brother. It is all original (other than the $5000. that I dumped into it over the last year on minor stuff. Original paint and vinyl top. It was garage kept for over 30 years. I just wanted to post a pic to shoe off a little. I admit it ! <a href="http://photobucket.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t73/smstrick69/MC005.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>

    No....It has the factory 350 with just a little over 100,000 miles on it. It even has the original quadra jet carb on it . Car runs like a dream and drives better than anything I have ever been in, including new Caddys. Shooth riding machine. I have put about five grand into the car from wind shield, new air conditioning, tire and wheels etc. Other than that,....the paint and vinyl top are original as also the interior (exept carpet, it is new.)

    Had one of those in High School (77-78). White, red interior w/ swivel seats. One heck of a car for a 17-18 yo. Had a bad meeting w/ a South Central Bell van. I still regret that. I can't get over the condition the original poster's car is in.
