The engine compartment.  I bought it without records on what was done but here is what I was told and what I can see.  Trick Flow heads, Holley 770 cfm double pumper 4 bbl, Edelbrock air gap intake manifold. What I can't see, bored .030 over, scat pistons and push rods.  Actually I was told most, if not all, the rotating assembly was upgraded.

Marc, I do too but this was originally a dark blue metallic with blue laser stripes according the the Marti Report.  One of a little more than 500 with this paint and trim code.  Since the car is already scarce I wouldn't mind it being just a little bit more.

Not without her scars though.  Marti says she was built in Atlanta and delivered to southern California.  It went to Michigan and was used as a trade-in (where I got it) at a dealership in Pennsylvania.  The repairs were done at Wicks Kustom Rods LLC in Williamsburg, VA who did a great job.

No MrSmog.  As much as I wish it were I got the additional support from the missus with the promise of when it is finished she'll be able to drive it too.

Interesting place to put those gauges in the console like that. Some might screech at that, but it looks good. Welcome!

Welcome and what a sharp Torino!  You don't see them often in white, but it wears the colour well.

Matt, yes it was an interesting place but the dash was dead except for the gas gauge and the speedometer.  I am hoping to get in on the new printed dash circuit board when they become available.  I will then do something about the center console once the dash is working again.
