Additional Information: I purchased this car on 1/12/1980 for $200.00. It had previously been modified and had a hot Hemi 265 fitted, with a 3 speed floor shift. The car was very fast in its day, the guy that did the car up sold it.
From there the car got a very hard life and was run into the ground. It also got a defect notice on it. The 265 motor had the engine number and 265 insignia ground off of it, and a 225 number from the wreckers stamped on it. I sold the motor for $200.00 and have bought a 225 motor out of a VC Valiant.
I have replaced the floor and removed other rust in the panels - this has been a very slow process mainly because I have not had the area to carry out the repairs until recently. I get the urge every now and then to work on the car...... I will finish it off one day.
