    I like these threads...Im starting to see people post cars for sale and saying "its a 77" etc...Then all the smarties chime in and say "nope" because of this..that...this etc...And this confirms...you can sometimes never tell. You all do great work hiding the original DNA.

    Well for sure there are some guys that do that, i can only speak for me and what Ive got. Not trying to hide anything. Ive looked all over the car and have lots of thing of two cars and decided to go with what says on the title. the engine of the car is for sure the one of a 75 and so is the th350 transmission. Ive also checked behind the AC and the number matches to the engine so yes its a 75
    But the VIN as Ive posted before might have been swapped in brazil or something cause there are for sure parts of two cars in this one.

    don't recall telling the story of this car but Ive practically inherit this car from a friend of mine that passed away 3 years from today in this exact date. as is shown in the pictures. the car had lots of metal sheet panels replaced because of the rust. My friend here Valentin was going to assemble a resto mod i think. or something close to original.
    I aim to keep the car For long time and enjoy it in his honor and i like it to be as original as possible and of course i like more the 74.

    Hiding the orig DNA brings in more cash.

    I don't know the DNA of the car cause its a mix if you say hiding A27B4150-8758-4056-9535-0C0F92C794D0.jpeg IMG_3596.jpeg 19918676-C415-45AB-A275-60368E290FFB.jpeg the gold paint on this mirrors is the 5353 code from the trim tag.
    also are the interior panels think of the 780 neutral interior
    that's the engine with an edelbrock performer intake manifold that came with from the previous owner. I've decided to paint it orange. cause i like to be less flashy.
    and with the valve covers i bough the aluminum fined ones of a z28.

    That is some amazing work. And that pallet of parts probably cost a fortune, not to mention shipping costs.
