Looks freaking awesome!

And I gotta say, I think it's great you used an actual project car in dire need of restoration to bring back to life.

The 71 is my dream ride.

The third gen mesh wheels look great. Are you planning to keep them?

Thanks to all.

(chichirone Looks great Ben. You have done a ton of work on it. Love the white Procar seats.)

Sorry if the seats are confusing, but in the pics they're bare foam seats with the plastic on them. At the moment a friend of mine is covering them with black leather. Seen seats she's done before and I have no doubt they'll come out perfect.

(WSSix The third gen mesh wheels look great. Are you planning to keep them? )

I got the WS6 wheels for temp use. I'm gonna get rid of them. Eventually. Buddy of mine has first dibbs on them. If he doesn't want them....they'll be up for sale. Gonna either put YO Rally 2's or Torque thrust 2's.

Almost went with an LS motor, but there's nothing like a big displacement motor idling.

Thanks. It's really rare to find true Formula's anymore. Everyone's converted them to T/A's or has a T/A.
