This one is going to be my practice run for V8 swaps. I have a 215 and an LT77 to drop into it but it needs some resto work first.

On hold due to lack of time, other projects, and "life on life's terms". Motorcycles are the main culprit, I will admit. I have three hot-rod Harleys, one with a bigger motor than a stock B, that are satisfying my need for speed for now!! But the parts collection process is ongoing for it. It WILL be a finished car some day!!

Don't hack that green 1 all up. I have a 741/2 rubber bumper GT with Mass Title be much better.

Yeah, well, normally I wouldn't think of hacking up a '67, but this one needs work from the tunnel out, so it's probably too much work for someone that doesn't have the equipment I have. To restore using real parts would be costly. To make the parts myself with 300HP in mind and not having to be "to code" makes things more realistic. To my mind it's not worth saving without doing the swap.
