Thanks for letting me join the forum. I recently was given a 1972 Torino 2dr hardtop base  model. It was originally a six cylinder car. But the previous owner installed a 289ci motor . And C4 transmission It is .030 over with a mild cam, GT40 intake, GM HEI conversion and Edelbrock 600cfm carb. The engine was rebuilt a verified 8k miles ago. The car came with the machine shop receipt and mileage at the time of the rebuild. There is 84,500 miles currently on the odometer. So far I've cleaned up the underhood wiring, deleted the column shift  (removed both indicator and lever mount, filled holes and painted the column), installed a B&M Star Shifter, made new sail panels and package tray (with speaker cutouts), installed a 3" aftermarket tach in the clock bezel, fabricated a 3 guage pod in place of the factory seat belt light panel, nstalled a Bluetooth radio and 6x9 speakers under the package tray. All of the new electronics are  wired with their own harnesses and plugs to disconnect for any changes or modifications.I still have an  aluminum dual plane manifold, stainless steel headers and chrome valve covers to install . Still on my wish list are a 3:50ish rear gear and Tru trac, aftermarket rear trailing arms and wheels and tires. The body is fair with rust in the trunk and rear quarters. A couple small dents on the passenger side. Also have acquired some pieces to fabricate a useable grill that shouldn't look horrible. I'm working on that now and will post pics when I'm approved on the forum to do so. For now it runs and drives pretty amazing. It's definitely reliable enough to drive everyday if I want. I'm into the  car for about $500 including tile and registration. Pretty good start to what is going to be my ongoing resto mod project. Lol .....I just started this project the second week of September.

I need all the way across the top and top right hand corner, most of the way across the bottom and both bottom corners. It's a real mess.
