Upholster the seat and drive it. That car is a gas sipper and should stay that way. If you take it apart, it will die.
Its way cool the way it is, in such beautiful shape.
Hardly a scratch on it.
What you need is a 2 door duster body to start with or a 2 door dart.
Build THAT from the ground up instead.
If you start taking the green car apart, you will be walking to work. A lot.

Not trying to be flip and I sure dont want to discourage you, but it would be a waste of mony and a perfectly good car to do anything with the 4 door 68. I like the 68 as is.
It is so much easier to build a car from a bare body or get a deal on another project and start there. Plus you allready have a car to chase parts with.
No sir leave the green machine alone. Of course I would upholster the seat, tint the windows and put a blazin sound system in it, while you are getting things together for another car.
Keep posting and hanging around here. You can get advise on tint, upholstery, sound systems etc.
The 68 would be a good starter car as it doesnt need a buttload of stuff, and the experience you get will be useful for anything you do in the future. Welcome to HR.com LA Tech
