Modifications

Drivetrain
Built Auto, 1,200$ was a lot of money for a Trans build in 1984. Have the OE, but the C4 is what’s there, want to drive it, with a cut harness & no interior, I’ll wait. Had to do a little temp wiring to fire it off- sounded great loping away, glad I kept all my Holley pa arts! I’ll do it right first..
Interior
Pieces of, have all.. Painless harness coming up.
Exterior
Not to shabby, but it’ll be. A body off frame for sure. No rust, owner cared- kid didn’t.
Audio
Original, May update it a tad.
Lighting
Have it all, at least what the kid didn’t bust, dash with the E brake light on the drivers side, as should be.
Exhaust
2.5” 304ss with H, 1-3/4LT’s
Wheel and Tire
Original glass, some street slicks I’m back, staggered on Welds. Have OE’s.
