    Welcome! Second gen looks like a nice start. From the pics, looks like you could paint the cladding, bury a buffer in it and rock it. Third gens look great, Bird was beautiful.

    The shell looks like it's pretty solid. More solid than my 70 rust bucket

    Numbers matching car with 71k on the odometer, which I think is correct. I plan on just returning it to stock, with the exception of an engine rebuild. Try and get the HP up around 330 -350, yet retain stock look.

    You can make it look "stock" but with up graded componets .It a wonder what some paint will do .Either a 1970-3 type exhuast and or run a a high flow cats are a few suggestions .

    Will headers ruin the stock appearance or is that an "acceptable" upgrade? Looking for opinions
