Looks stock, but this car has a very healthy small block Ford hiding under the hood. Ford rear end and 4spd stick for the rest of the drivetrain. Very wild headers...perhaps Craig has a photo of the engine. Even has a roll bar. Thanks for posting. Junior

The only thing I don't like is the chrome headlight rings.
For some reason they don't work with that color on that car.

Is that shine under the fender part of the header or aluminium dryer ducting going to the heater?

No, it's a hose for the heater. When I mentioned the headers it was because they are the first thing you notice when looking under the hood. IIRC, they are 'shortie' headers that are swapped side for side and outlets pointing forward with the headpipes coming off of the collectors and then being routed through the inner fenders...but it's been a few years since I've looked, so some details are sketchy, but as I said, they're the first thing a person would focus on when looking at the engine. The car has a definite retro-bonneville vibe happening with the roll bar, bad-ass floor shifter, and once again, IIRC wide competition style seatbelts. I would be surprised if Craig P did not have more photos of this car. Junior.

The look is just right in my book. Nice, very nice.

Maybe it is the picture that I am looking at, but it looks like the left (driver's) front fender has a fender top ornament and the right front fender does not have one.

It's difficult, but I believe I can see an ornament on both sides. The glare from the hood makes it hard to see the one on the passenger side.
