seems complete what are you going to be doing to it??

The main change will be the motor it has a high comp motor right now and is going to be changed over to a low comp, also it has drum brakes in the rear so those will be changed over to discs and micro stubs. Other changes will mostly be just for personal preference and that the car hasn't been raced in several years.

That looked like a nice car and a good price that you can put a little into it and still be ok.

Finally some updates, have had a lot of cutting and grinding off old tabs and making of new ones. Got most of the things that I want to change done. Front end is solid and not going to be changed other than a fresh bumper. Interior is being changed quite a bit just to fit me better, shifter moved and remounted then called for a new shift shaft support, pedals got moved, and built a new dead pedal. Moving back, just changed how the spare tire mounts, and new jack mount to accommodate a scissor jack.
Should have some more updates later this week.

Got some more things completed this week, new fan guard because the old one was falling apart, dash is done with all switches, gauges, radio, and battery kill switch mounted, new fan shroud built out for the oil cooler as it did not have a fan on before.

Just a heads up on the fan intake, a 1600 car is run WOT pretty much the whole time so you want to move as much air as possible over that motor to keep it cool. It’s not too common for stuff to get sucked into the fan so over protection isn’t a huge necessity but air movement is, especially on an air cooled motor. Good looking work and look forward to seeing you out there next year.
