Well, here it goes. My 1970 project. Car was bought by my Grandfather.

Building a 383, roller valve train. Savitske suspension, wilwood disc at all 4 corners....

When's it's done, she will be my daily driver. I'll add pics as we go.

Thanks to Mikey at Driven Speed Shop here in AZ!

Thanks! The color is Misty Turquoise. It's a factory 1970 color. My goal is for it to resemble stock, but act more modern. I'll be daily driving the car.

Wow, lookin' great!  Nice wheels and color combo - should be a real head-turner when you hit the streets!   Looks much classier with the black vinyl top.  Keep us posted on the completion if this build, please.

Took the Monte around the block yesterday. It was awesome! Handled great, stops great, sound is good, but not break your ear drums.

Gorgeous!  A real compliment to the first gen Monte family!!  I love to see subtle, yet flattering, modifications that don't alter the classic profile of our first gens!  The rare color combo, classic yet modern wheel/tire combo, lower stance, trim sport mirror, bumper guards, stock grill and full halo top all combine to make your '70 an elegant, head-turning ride - well done!

Thank you very much! That is exactly what I am going for. I want the car to look classic, but behave like a more modern car. I can't wait to get it back! I'll post more pics when she's mine for good!
