New Project

I traded a TH2004R, 8.5" 10 bolt posi rear, and a Stock D5 Regal Grand National converter for this little jewel. The pine straw and rust was thrown in for free.









Now I have to drag it home and start cleaning. I'll sand/prime it, finish plumbing the brakes, wire the lights, get some good rubber under it and leave it until I finish the Nova. I think it'll make a neat ride once I figure out how to get in and out of it with injuring myself.

Flashbacks of 1974 ! Don't suppose there are traces of "Gapp and Roush" or "Dyno Don Nicholson" under the primer on the doors ?

I wish.

This car is a '75 and was built in the eighties by a roundy round racer for his son. The kid lost interest in it and sold it. It was a raced for a few years and the guy started a repaint that never got finished. It sat in the spot next to the trees for 8 years until yesterday. Here's a picture of what it looked like before the last owner got his hands on it. I hope I can make it look at least that good again.

I like it, cool project! Looks like a lot of expensive parts are already in it...


How about grafting that desoto hemi into it man?!

BTW, why did you give up the 200R? I thought you were looking forward to building that? Perhaps you had more than just the one-

As long as I still draw breath that Nova will be mine and my priority, as far as cars go.

I was thinking of painting it black if I get the body smooth enough and etching a skull and crossbones on the rear window. You been sneakin' around in my head?

Yup it's chock full of goodies, not to mention the amount of fabrication that I could never afford to have done.

The Hemis valve covers are wider than the hood, mating the two crossed my mind more than once.

I had a 2004R from a Monte Carlo and a Buick GN. I kept the GN trans.

You bettuh know it bubba. I traded my junk for his junk even steven.

It might take a few years to finish it. I'd like to build a nice engine for it after I finish the Nova and figure out what I'm going to do with the Hemi. I was looking for an old rod to horsetrade for my stuff when I found the Pinto, I couldn't pass it up.

Is this how everybody else ends up with a lifetimes worth of "projects"?
