Modifications

Drivetrain
Got the car to start on 8/6, we had to replace to following: starter, spark plugs & wires, fuel pump & filters, battery.....I think there might be an ignition problem, sometimes when you turn the key it just "clicks" and other times it fires right up...It does not idle smoothly, goes up in rpm and drops, maybe I don't have the choke in the proper position. It has a Webber carb and headers.
Interior
The gas tank leaks, so my brother and I pulled it (8/10/11) poured rust right out of the fill hole. Need to get it the inside cleaned and sealed. I think the float looks ok but I need to pull it out while the tank is out. Seats look good (no rips), carpet is new, dash and instrument pannel are original and cracked look pretty rough.
Exterior
Bad rust under the nose as is customary, rust in the wheel wells, paint is fairly new, chrome is ok, need to replace all of the rubber surrounding the windows and doors, all of the lights work except one of the front turn signals.
Audio
No radio, no speakers
Suspension
Shocks and bushings look good, front and rear sway bars, stock springs
Wheel and Tire
long way down the list
