Default 69 Firebird Conv build Raptor

I am finally starting the build of my first car 69 Firebird Conv. I have had this car for 38 years and am the second owner. So far i have had the entire body shell and body panels alkaline dipped and ecoated. I am planning to use the 525LS3/4l70E auto cruise and connect. I have ordered a complete Speedtech pro touring suspension front and rear with Ron Suttons help. I can highly recommend Ron he has been great o work with.

That looks like fun.
The GM Gen III and IV crate engines are hard to beat from a power and reliability standpoint.
