History
Was a 74 plain jane shell. Being built into sort of Pro-Touring type car.
Has 70-73 nose and has a 6.0L LQ4 being built.
Will be a driver.

This was a straight and 99% rust free roller that I found on craigslist for 200.00
Originally had a chevy 250 6cylinder with a th350. Had absolutely no options, other than power steering. not even power brakes. IMHO the best platform to build on.
1974 Pontiac Firebird (many)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Currently Big Block Chevy. Will be getting warmed up LQ4 that I have left over from another project. I'm expecting about 400 hp from the 6.0L which should make for a nice modernized daily driver muscle car.

Trans is a 4L80E from a 1ton chevy pickup. Will be getting a lock up converter with about a 2500-2800 stall speed.

the current big block will be re-done(twin turbo) and end up in my 84 vette street/strip car
Interior
none yet
Exterior
70-73 nose and Trans-Am exterior bolt-on stuff.

will be flush mounting the front and rear glass and a few other subtle mods.
Audio
Stock Frame with solid bushings, 700LB front springs and subframe connectors.
I dont plan on roll bar or cage, its just a driver.
Suspension
Mostly factory GM right now, but I will probably be going with a 9" and a 3-link torque arm setup of my own design.
Wheel and Tire
will inherit the 16" centerline wheels and tires that are currently on my 84 corvette.
