My 77' T/A Resto
« on: December 16, 2013, 06:22:06 AM »
New to the forum but wanted to post a few pics of my 77' T/A Resto. When I got the car it had the roof swap to Fisher T-Tops but I liked the condition of the car.  It was originally a silver with red interior car. Engine was still the original 403. Knowing it would never be original again, I decided to make it my own.  It's getting a new brake and rear disc conversion, LT1 from a Corvette with a 4L60e Trans, New leather Interior, Complete Glow Shift Gauge set -up. New paint With custom bird , 18" rims and a few more goodies. Here's a few pics so far I saved on my photobucket in no particular order.

Yikes!   Looks like a real screamer.  Keep it up and keep us updated.

Here's the latest. It's starting to come together. I have the dash out fixing 35 years of weekend warrior wire jobs. Almost ready to put in the aftermarket guages.....
