Quick back story, Picked this up about a year ago off craigslist, guy needed quick cash and the car off his property, apparently it was his Bro-in-laws, BIL went to jail, bla bla anyway, got it for, (no foolin) $500, yes Five Hun-der-ed, you read it right. Trans went, he thought it was scrap!!!
305 2bbl w/AC
Orig. Bench seat (replaced with buckets and console out of a Cutlass (I got lucky in the Junkyard)
Roughly 175K on the odo.
It must have been sitting outside for a bit with a leaky rear wing window and the usual leak at the heater box, pass. side floors need minor patching but all in all not that bad, drivers side is perfect.
So that's where I am right now, I just got the carpet from ACC, sometime this week I'll cut the rust out of the floor-pan and have my buddy weld in the patch, then I can start putting the int. back together.
I also just received my Flow-tech Shorty headers, so once the floor is done its off to get the exhaust done, I'm gonna go single 2.5' all the way back w/ a cat and a Cherry Bomb Vortex, should sound good, just a spring/summer cruiser, not looking to break any records.
Got the car with 14' Ralley IIs, meh? So again got lucky in the JY found a Formula 350 Firebird with the 16" Formula wheels (you can tell the Formula wheels apart from "regular" wheels by the faux allen head/beadlock around the perimeter of the wheel) tires are 255/55/16
Turns out though, that all 4 wheels don't fit on the G-Body, The rear wheels are wayyyy deep as far as backspacing, and don't even make the studs before tire hits frame, BUT The front ones fit almost perfectly all the way around, I say almost because the rear could use a .5" spacer due to tire size, but it doesn't rub, damn close tho.
That left me with another dilemma, where to find 2 more front Formula 350 wheels, I searched all over for them, no luck, so I stopped looking, went to the local stop on the Super Chevy Show tour, Got there super early to see if there were any good deals, and whatta ya know! right inside the gate first stand I go to, dude has a complete set of FORM350 wheels W/WS6 center caps!! $100 SOLD!!
on to the pics.........
