Default 1965 Chevelle SS

I picked up this 1965 SS a few years ago. I drove it a couple of years and then started tearing it apart and doing a few things to it. It's an original SS with protecto-plate. It's got about 90,500 original miles. The previous owner rebuilt the original engine, along with a turbo 350 trans. The original 10 bolt is in place and up front the previous owner added disc brakes. It also came with an aluminum radiator with electric fan. The interior has been completely redone. The previous owner also added the rims and tires.

My plan is to upgrade everything except for the body and paint. That can come much later. There is some rust, bondo, dings and dents, but I'm focusing on all the mechanical things first.
