well got the motor and trans out today.just pulled them out together.now i have a complete original date code 289 with nothin to do with it any suggestions.now gonna clean up the engine bay and repaint. gonna replace the front susp. and steering system while the motor is out. much easier that way. also the entire interior is gutted and already started redoing the floor.i would be alot farther along but i live in houston and its been in the high 90s too damn hot out.ill take some pics tomorrow.
