James's friend was wanting an old car like James' 74 so with a tip from Mohammad I bought this little driving (Now ) project from Down town Los Angeles. Now his mother does not want him to have an old car "you can't drive them on the freeway ! "

So we decided to cherry it out a bit & repair all the little damage the PO's daughter inflicted on the car, scratches, broken turn sig switch,broken drop down screen on the DVD stereo !!. I have swapped out the weird speedo , aligned the drivers window correctly , I have plenty of little stuff to do like the hood fit at the nose . It will be a good car it has a rebuilt engine & trans & the brakes etc are great . I may go 2 tone as the paint is suffering & it's a black cherry metallic so not stock anyway.(was Agave !! )

Also I could not live with a nose high stance so I went to work with a cut off wheel & the wheels that were originally on my 71.

Here are some snaps .

Good luck with the project! The seats look like they just got re upholstered.
