I'm not normally big fan of flame paint jobs, but I like it :beer

I think it'd look good with some clean looking tube bumpers

Any plans for it?

You've got a good starter rig, things to fix isn't as extensive as my list was but looks good. Sunroof looks identical to mine which leads me to believe that these were a dealer installed option.

Looks pretty good. Someone was well into a project. What kind of deal did ya get?
I paid too much for it but I really liked it so I bought it anyway. I paid $2800.

It seems factory to me. I was thinking it could be a really well done custom job, but if it looks the same as yours I bet it was a dealer option.

The reason I like the sunroof idea, is the PO cut a whole in my roof for a CB antenna. So I've already got a hole anyway, why not just cut in bigger, LOL!

Could of been dealer installed but I doubt it. Back in the early 80's when I worked at my Dad's parts store a sunroof, right next to headers, was one of the biggest selling aftermarket items we carried in stock. It wasn't that hard to cut a hole in the roof and put one in.

Definetly not a factory item.

Ok, so the 400 did not put out much horsepower stock only 169hp. But with my Edelbrock intake and 600cfm carb could someone guesstimate for me about how much hp I would have now?
