Thank you Brian,
The car was found in the desert with its rear window broken out, engine blown and the interior shot.
A bodyman from Constatine Pontiac (an old Pittsburgh Pontiac dealer) spoted it when it came up here on back of a car hauler. He knew it was a winner with its perfect metal preserved by the deserts dryness. So he made the buyer a deal and picked it up at a very good price. Then he restored it. He hand dollyed a rear fender dent for 2 weeks so'* not to use too much body filler.
Like you mentioned I bought it in very good condition.
It was the perfect car for me becouse I'm not a body man but I like to do the mechanics.
I finished the suspension last spring, everything new.
I also updated a few things like Addco sway bars, quick ratio steering box and dual master cyl. I also totally rebuilt the brake system and modified a few things to give it that extra edge. It stops better than my our new Chevy with discs!
Back in the day it wasn't that the brakes were bad it was those lousy bias ply tires.
4 new 225/70-15 Firestone Firehawk 500s fixed that problem.
This car handles like a 90s sports car.
You should see the looks I get from Beamer and Benz drivers when I pass them at 120-130!
