Did you buy it?

I'm slowly working on mine as time and funds allow. Picked up a set of ceramic headers to fix the exhaust leak. I've been running down some tune issues that keep stalling the car at idle, almost have that whipped I think.

C4 has started leaking and the motor is leaking oil (which the previous owner straight up lied about and even cleaned the spots so it wouldn't show). Current debate is what project to tackle next: full T5z transmission conversion vs built C4, update suspension all around, go ahead and snatch the 289 out and replace with 347 crate motor. I've got a list too...

I havent bought it yet, I have spoken with the builder/owner a few times and if everything checks out when I go see it, I will bring it home. It was a frame off rotisserie body rebuild. New floor pans, quarters & fenders all new glass. Moser GM 12 bolt w/4:11's. Muncie 4 speed and a mild small block. Front frame assembly was blasted and powder coated with all new stock style suspension.
It just needs someone to finish the little things and make it my own. Already been shopping for a big block to to a swap and I can see the need to upgrade the 4 speed to a TKO 500/600 5 speed due to the 4:11's.

Having a list is what makes this kind of stuff fun

I thought about a TKO600 in mine but I would have to modify the tunnel and/or trans to make it fit. T5 fits as is. Modern Driveline does the full conversion kit with everything brand new for about $4500.

I spent the day getting the shop cleaned up and ready for a car.. prior occupant used it as a wood working shop.. I hauled 2 loads of sawdust out of there
Took 5 hours with a broom and a blower to get the rest of the dirt and dust out.. still not 100% but a hell of a lot better
I need to build a work table along the back wall and add some more shop lights.
I'll be able to do a kerosene or propane heater in there during the winter when it'll be time to be working on it and not driving it

I’d like to have a hauler like that, but I’ll use a uhaul short term if I need to tow it anywhere.
