If you are wanting to have the body work done by a shop, check out Buster's Rod Shop in glendale AZ. They are located at 52nd and Glendale ave. Southside of Glendale, west side of 52nd. (the big old factory building just west of Carlito's market)

What size engine is it, and what does it need to run well? There are several choices; rebuild, buy a crate motor or see if your local engine/speed shop has built engine specials. You could even buy a good running used one. If its a numbers matching SS or collectable model, I'd advise to rebuild what it has. Especially a big block car. Good luck.
