Dude, your project already looks way cooler than mine.
I have a 71 Mach that I feel is beyond resto, so I'm going to build me a bumble bee. (Yellow car with black stripes, rockers, louvers, etc.)
I'm using a 351 / 460 swap in a pu. as a test bed. After I feel like I know my way around this new motor, I'm going to start my Bumble Bee project.
Blower / Nitrous? Haven't decided yet. Not interested in comp. strip racing. Just a loping, sleeping, street demon.

Nice project Darren. 8) Are you making it a street bruiser or track only car? Keep us posted with the progress.

I see there is still a few people around who likes the 71-73's. Nice car btw. Mine used to be black but has ended up like so and seems to be a never ending project.
