    Well, been working on this car for the past couple of months. It's a 1967 Buick GS400 Post.

    I purchased it as a roller. Just had the transmission in it.

    Dropped in a rebuilt 430
    Edelbrock intake topped with a Sniper Efi unit and fed with a stealth aeromotive tank.
    Breathes out Kenne Bell headers and dual exhaust that Dumps at the axle

    Has a 74 TH400 case with switch pitch internals.

    12 Bolt rear, I think it's an early 64 narrow 12 bolt with 3.73 gears.

    Has buckets with a center console with tach.

    Car appears to have factory disc brakes as well.

    Original color was Ivory with yellow interior and black top.

    I bought it in a funky teal color with black buckets. Only the door panels and headliner are the original yellow/ white interior.

    I added my set of custom offset 15x7 and 15x8 rallies. The rear was able to fit a 275 tire with no running. I think the backspacing is 5.5.

    I'm planning on using it as a daily for a while. Adding a vintage air unit as soon as I get it back from paint.

    I'll just update this thread randomly as it progresses.

    Also had the front Bumper rechromed. Came out great. Still need to clean the rear. Also need to clean and paint the badges.

    The grill as well but it's in excellent shape.

    It is starting to look real good. I am glad you swapped the ugly wheels out. I had been chatting with you about the wheels on Facebook in the past. The Flat black looks decent too. Keep us posted on the progress.
