History
Bought at a swap meet in New Braunfels, TX in 2007 for a handshake price! :)

Immediately upgraded the C-6 to heavy duty bands/clutches, a Trans-Go shift modulator and a 2200 stall converter..

Home ported the iron intake manifold. Home ported D3VE-A2A heads. Jetted Holley 750 carbs.

Modifications

Drivetrain
OH, this is the fun part!

385-Series 460.
Stock bore X stroke.

New Weiand Stealth dual-plane manifold going in. New Comp .519 lift cam with lifters, timing assembly and valve springs as well.

Additional porting will be done on the heads with stamped steel roller rockers being added along with a 3-angle valve job. Should be done before October '15.
Interior
Seat is in BAD shape! Need a replacement...interested in bucket seats with a center console box (like the Bronco).

Door panels are completely SHOT...broken and taped together...pretty embarrassing!

Dash and all else in pretty good shape.
Exterior
Very few dents in body, except tailgate. Removed lower beauty trim and painted all primer white.

Roof is starting to rust through above windshield so some professional work will be needed there some day.

Will need a fair paint job in the next year or two as well... Going to keep the mono-tone instead of the stock two-tone paint scheme.
Audio
Basic Kenwood w/ 6-disc changer. Good speakers.
