  • This is a '75 with the blue LDO trim option. Car came with a transplanted 200 from some other donor. Some minor rust in some places, but the seats and door panels are in fair shape considering the heat and sun down here. The car was originally polar white,but had a rattle can paint job to turn it blue. Car has the 8" rear end and is 5 bolt wheels, power disk brakes up front.

    Plans:
    - 302 EFI from a '92 cougar donor (already under rebuild)
    -AOD from the cougar
    -Repaint to Polar white
    -Swap out to small bumpers from a '70 grabber
    -Bumper swap also adds the spoiler on the rear
    -Change to a grabber hood (on hand, bought locally)
    -Seat belts are being re-webbed
    -All new weather stripping and seals
    -New headliner
    -Figure out how to get a good looking dash pad
    -Complete rewire under dash - wiring is an absolute mess on this car
    -New wheels, not even sure what these came off of, but OK during rebuild.
    -Swap the rear windows to get rid of the faded stickers

    Then sell the '70 donor as it's an Arizona car with virtually no rust. May need one of the fenders off of it if the rust on this one is more than surface deep.
