The Story

We rescued this car from the junkyard with no engine or wheels and are in the process of getting it back on the road, LS swapped with a 4L80 trans. I'd like to swap in a 5 or 6 speed in the future but I had the 4L80 on hand so that is what we are going with for now. My main goal for now is just to get it back roadworthy, so I don't exactly have a specific idea of what the finished build will look like, but that will come in time.

Current Setup

  • Wheels:

Planned Upgrades

  • Performance: LS/4L80
  • Exterior: Full wrap (undecided on color)
  • Wheels: 18" bronze wheels (undecided on style)
