Hello everyone. I got this a few months ago. thought you folks might like to see it. the car is really clean, more clean than the pics show. there was minor rust in the rockers, the previous owner fixed with bondo. i will use lead, do it properly, and repaint in the future. wish i had a before picture, i've done a whole lot of work on this. It has the the 8r in it currently. I'm building a stroker 22r for it now. it's been steam cleaned head to toe, something I would recommend to everyone. made a huge difference as far as working on it. i've soundproofed most of it. 2 sealed batteries in the trunk. ripped out all smog, all ac junk, i gained a few ponies just throwing out 200 pounds of steel! my plan?, light as possible, do all the work myself, keep it reliable, period correct wheels, (other than the a.r.e. libre's, i dont fancy them.) and period correct pinstriping. I am being a spaz, i dont want to give it all away, updates to come

Gorgeous car - I actually like those wheels... but I guess on such a cool car many other wheels would look great too!

Then there is something probably wrong.... your cars body style is a 71 and not a 70. the 70 model had flat tail lights, different side vents, smaller rear side markers, different grille along with some other minor items.

nothing "wrong" on my end. i think that was a poor choice of words. anyway, maybe she's special, or an grey market import? possible? point me in the direction i need to go to find out the information you know. any second opinions?

That car is most likely a 71. The 1970 on the door jam is usually the build date. A 70 has a different grill than your 71 and the tail lights on yours is a 71. I know this cause I'm looking for a 71 grill, I got a 72 MKII w/ 22r. hope this helps.
