I have touched on this before, but as I am at the point of pulling the trigger so to speak and start shelling the cash...
In chatting with you all over the past months,
I have chosen to keep the car to exactly match the trim tag. I do have a correctly coded SS350 with the car (six weeks after car was built). First engine was blown in the 70s. I have the original 12-bolt and a '70 powerglide.
I was going to:
1) Upgrade suspension to Hotchkis Total Vehicle System
2) Upgrade to new four-wheel power disc brakes
3) Upgrade to new rack and pinion steering
4) Upgrade to tach and gage package from standard console car.
I plan to keep all original parts.
Thoughts about this strategy?
Due to non-matching numbers, intend to enjoy the car, local shows, etc...
