Let the journey of asking questions begin ;)

I pulled the trigger and bought it, needs alot of work but it's a 70's 302 sportsroof with a clean title. It will make a nice BOSS 302 tribute but damn i love the MACH 1 with shaker on.. still debating what i really want. Anyhow i'm sure it will keep me entertained for years to come.

If you don't feel like putting the shock towers back in, now would be the perfect time to upgrade the front suspension. I like Griggs, myself.

I'm still debating that idea as well Paul, car is a perfect candidate for a rack and pinion set up. Passenger's tower has been completely removed. The old man i bought it from told me Fatman has a nice setup which even bolts on. I'll look into your Grigg's set up before making any final decisions. Before i get into any serious mods i want to finish up the body work. Over 2 grand was invested on the vehicle on new sheet metal and labor, floors were finished, quarter panels wheel wells and tail light panel. Man couldn't finish the project after losing his job and had to go. Roof and front end is whats left pretty much. The older gentleman who bought it from this other guy is to old to finish it so he was looking for someone who can do it. He gave me a sweet deal and since i'm in no rush i'm confident i can finish it in a few years.

It's important to have a solid platform, for sure. I'll probably take some time this winter to do the floor pans on mine. But yeah, if you have any questions about the Griggs kit, feel free to hit me up.
