I have owned the car since July 1982 in Chesapeake, VA where I am originally from. I bought the car my senior year of high school and have had it ever since. When bought the car it was blue with a 350 small block and a Muncie four speed. The car had air shocks, headers, bucket seats, and the old style 15 inch cragars on it. The car sat in storage for over 21 years because I joined the the Army, and never returned to VA. I retired from the Army in 2004 in KY and started working on the car trying to get in back in shape. It was at this point that I decided to do my very first frame off restoration. It was very trying at times and took over two years since I had to learn how to weld and fit new sheet metal. The end result is in the pictures. I love my car and will some day pass it on to my son!
