Long story short? Bought in 1995 for $6500.00 in great shape but in need of a restoration. Knowing it would be going down for a full restore soon. I Beat on it real good for about 3 years with a 383 in it. Acquired a 1965 440 motor out of a C Body. Strapped it down to a pallet and sent it up to Hensley Performance in Knoxville TN. Then spent many many hours on it to make it look like it does now. Not for everyone? but,,,,, I built it for ME.
