This is my project car Iíve been working on for around a year and a half. I bought the car in 1976, it has a 351 Cleveland with a 4 speed. I just bought a new front and rear coil over suspensions for it.
Removed the shock towers and welded in the new cross member a couple weeks ago. Last weekend I welded in the panels that replace the shock towers.
There was a lot of rust everywhere, have gone through a reel of .24 wire in my Mig welder. Today I put the hood and front fenders on it to line them up in preparation for paint.
Here are a few pictures, one is what the car looked like when I was in High School.
Nice work. I had a 70 Torino GT up until last year. It had a 302 with an automatic. I purchased a ragged out 70 Ranchero GT with 351C and top loader. That was going to go into it but I didn't have the time. Sold both to a guy in Australia. I do miss it when I see a car like yours.

Folks say I'm lazy, drunk and stupid. Well, I got news for them......they're only 2/3 right.
They say you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but I've always had my best success with a dead squirrel
