This is a 3 year project that has had the best of everything used in a Frame Off, Nut and Bolt restoration. It features an all GM driveline starting with a fresh 350 cubic inch engine and turbo 350 transmission. Trans Am front sub-frame and Rear axle with front and rear sway bars, as well as all new shocks and springs on 4 corners and 4 wheel disc brakes make it a very exceptional handling truck that thinks it's a race car. New American Racing 5 Spoke wheels wrapped in Nexen Radials gives that Old School Hot Rod look and a great feel for the road. With lots of chrome under the hood you can show this one at the local car shows or the take it, with confidence, to Good Guys and hold your head high knowing you can impress every car buff in the crowd. The Vintage Air heating and cooling system will keep you comfortable on those Hot Summer days. If you are interested in investing in an asset that you can enjoy for years to come then this is a vehicle you must see. The odometer shows 197 miles of shake down, test miles only and it has proven the countless hours spent during this build were well worth the effort. Power Steering and brakes with a new chrome tilt steering column and custom steering wheel make it one of the most fun experiences of driving one could ask for. Custom body features a removed cowl vent and fender vent. We've enjoyed this build and are ready to send it to it's new home for your enjoyment and pleasure.
