Maybe I missed the post... but can anyone tell me what this car is/was originally?
It's hard to tell from the pics... as there isn't any pics of it BEFORE all this was done (other than the very distant pic from the first post)

Again beautiful work. I’ve read the other article. How do you plan to register this? Will a smog engine be swapped every 2 years? And how can all this wonderful eye candy be kept clean and un-damaged if planning drives around California? Honestly thought this was a show car build.

It will probably get a clear bra, but some rock chips here and there are inevitable. I'd rather it get damaged on the road than in my garage.

Engine will get the same treatment as the rest of the car. The guys at Sleepers Speed Shop can build a really solid motor and their attention to detail is second to none.

perfect.... thanks for that link.


Do you have a pic of the new front end on the car now? I'm interested in getting something similar.

Probably should go with black on the roll bar. Unless you want to shout "I HAVE A ROLL BAR". AHIK. I thought if I painted my roll bar white to match my cars paint it would be less obvious. I was wrong. Should have gone with black.

Nice looking roll bar, BTW. However I question the position of the rear supports.
