A year ago member Wollfen put new floor pans & lower quarter & fender patches in it. I got it home but was busy on the D440 truck (remember it ) & FURYIOUS. Finally got it in the shop about a month ago. Just a quick photo summary of the progress over the past few weeks. It’s going to be a Resto-Mod Street/Strip car. Hope you enjoy. Unfortunately I need to start back on FURYIOUS on Dec 1st so she can be ready for the 2020 race season. So I got November to get as much done as I can.

    That's a great project. Always liked the first gen. Barracuda. What engine/trans combo are you putting in it? I fancy a 273 and 4spd if ever given the opportunity. Thanks for rescuing it!!

    Hey, don't give up on a tool just because it has some age. I have one of those, had it since early 80's, (no tape on it though lol).
