Although the body is a mess, the engine is sound and pretty. I can show off under the hood, if nothing else!

It's a "Custom" 4.5 putting out at LEAST 20HP more than stock (Probably 30-40), with 3.5 heads and cams for higher compression and performance. Also used a 3.5 distributor for its advance curve to match the higher compression, and I may tweak it for more power still. Ideally, I'd like to try to fit a larger K-Jet manifold on it for more airflow.
