Rick, nice project. Looks like a well optioned Custom. Nice color scheme. Looks like it's missing the reacetrack trim?

Have you started it yet? I picked mine up from Newport News. It had been sitting since ~2002 and the gas had a bad smell. I drained the gas as good as I could and then added fresh, rebuilt the carb and started it. I got it running but I really should have dropped the tank and drained it dry of the old gas. Next time I started it it ran rouger and rougher. Ended up bending 3 push rods from stuck valves. Now I am rebuilding the entire engine! It needed it anyway but I am doing it sooner than I had planned! Good luck.
