The great white shark

Just got "the great white shark" out of the warehouse and looking forward to getting her back in decent shape. I've been lurking for the past week and now happy to be a member.

It's fun bringing them back out into the light isn't it?

The "Shark" looks like a great start.
Tell us a bit more about it. Looks like a 327 car with Black interior. Bumper guards.

Welcome.

Mine got the nickmane "Black Beauty" because it sure wasn't a beauty when I started.

Share more pictures and desription when you get time.

Good eye (on the 327 car), but with maroon interior.

My father bought the car new in 1967, so lots of childhood and teenaged memories. I've been lucky enough to be able to hold on to the car over the years, and now think I'm ready to bring it back to life. Unfortunately, my brother and I threw a rod in the original 327 when we tried to use nitrous oxide but has an electrical short in the fuel system. Over the years, we installed a 400 small block and used the original "fuelie" heads. The powerglide needs a rebuild and the brakes and tires need some work, but she still runs strong. Goes like snot but currently doesn't steer or stop veery well ! Keep ya all posted on any developments. Thanks for the welcome. Buddy
