I'd restore it, 10 years ago restored "economy car" from the 70's wouldn't have been worth much but now it could draw a lot of interest. I agree the Turbo would be cool just don't do anything that can't be unbolted.
Go along with this, except that the engine I'd turbo (if you wanted to go that way...) would be a spare, keep the original safe...
Sounds like a neat car. Original is the only way to go.
As for fitting a Hemi 6, do you guys realise they're two and a half inches longer than a slant? It may be necessary, for instance, to cut the radiator support panel about, and you definitely have to change the engine mounts on the K-frame. And then there's the adaptor to fit the 4-speed... though I'm in the process of making one of them here in Australia.
