Thanks for the replies. I just purchased and brought her home Saturday. It was a California car until 2018, has nice patina. From what I can see there hasn't been any rust thru and no sign of patch panels or filler anywhere. The motor is a 306ci Scat crank and rods, 10:1 forged pistons, Edelbrock performer heads, Anderson B31 roller cam, MSD digital 6 ignition, Hooker long tube headers, 3000 stall TCI converter, reverse manual valve body, 9" braced rear end with 430 gear(changing soon), Caltrac split leaf springs and traction bars, Crites spring relocation kit, viking adjustable shocks, Frame connectors, front suspension is all tubular upper and lower control arms, coil over viking adjustable shocks, adjustable strut rods, front disk brakes and rack and pinion steering. I may have missed something. :D I haven't figured out to upload a pics yet.
