Here's the details. It's actually a 70 Newport with the 71 300 grille, bumpers and tailights. 383  changed from a 2bbl to a 4 bbl. The previous owner did a lot of work to it which is why
I bought it. It's pretty much a done car. New duals with turbo mufflers, brand new ralley wheels although I'm gonna put a set of road wheels on it, rebuilt front end, transmission, radiator, new vinyl top and new interior. The only things left to do are fix the A/C and although the paint looks  decent I'm gonna repaint it so it has a good shine and depth to it. Driving it home 300 miles it ran great. It's a fun cruiser on the highway. I got 16 mpg at 75 mph on the trip. I paid $4000 for it. I'm sure the previous owner had way more than that in it. And of course it's a rust free blue plate California car. I'll post some more pics later.

Have you seen a doctor for that condition you have? I thought the surgery was some place else.    

Real nice find Chris.
