    Welcome.
    Can’t help with parts, but tell us about the car and what your goals are.
    With the exhaust routing and extended spring hangars, it’s either a 70’s survivor or seen some action on the drag strip?
    Racer or trophy chaser for you?

    Thanks guys.

    History is it's a flood damaged car from Houston TX and has been here about a month.

    It's got a 350 engine which has come from a newer car (80's we think) but it runs sweet!

    In terms of next steps I'm going to do a full assessment this weekend but immediate things are just to make it roadworthy
    New windscreen
    New wipers (not working)
    Rear diff has been welded so i'll look at replacing that
    Security - lets not even go there!
    drivers door needs aligning - feels like it's gonna drop off.
    Interior - I think most of my efforts will be here. i'm going to keep it simple but comfortable. Put a roll cage in. comfortable seats (keeping the rears) Some carpet. Possibly a new dash.

    Exterior - I'm going to keep the rat-rod look. I may change the colour to a matt black or grey though.

    Cheers!

    Greg
