For right now to get it through inspection...bone stock with log manifolds.  Then once inspected, dual exhaust and probaly a cam upgrade.
Would love to do a 496" stroker down the road but...that's way off....

Give that man a prize...Yeah it's rusty and pretty beat up.  Sat outside under a tree for 10 years before I bought it.

Well I give you guys a brief history of the car and how it was optioned and were it's going...
The car was bought brand new in Yakima WA and was still in the original owners hands up until around 2001-2002, when the woman finally passed away.  The car was then left to the/a son through the estate and since he had no need for it, it ended up on e-bay as a 67,000 rust free running and driving factory 440/auto wagon.
I was then bought buy a guy in Portland OR and was drivin from Yakima WA to Potland OR were this owner then pulled the original motor and tranny for his Duster race car.  It was then Re-e-bayed and a fellow from Wyoming bought it and brought it from Portland to Wyoming.
It was then that I was looking for a rust free 68 T/C wagon, and through a want ad online this guy contacted me in August 2005.  I bought the car and he let me store it on his potatoe farm until spring 2006.  We then worked out a deal and he transported the car from Wyoming to Seattle WA were I picked it up and brought it across the border into BC Canada.
It was then stored in a shed at my dad's farm until about 2 months ago when I finally got the garage cleared up enough to bring it home.
The car was ordered, 1968 T/C wagon, 6 pass, 440/4bbl/350HP, auto, Dual exhaust, A/C, power steering, power drum brakes, rear window washer system (rare), electric rear window, 14inch wheels, and deluxe 3 spoke steering wheel.  And that's about it for options.  The car is almost criminal it's so rust free, Yakima Wa is in Eastern WA and is High desert so the car is rust free.
SO my plans for the ol' girl are such...I have to quickly pull the motor and trans from the 300 and get the car running and driving so I can get it inspected to register it in BC, hope to have it ready by spring for this.  Then I will probably drive it this way next year and then next fall it will go back in the garage and I'll pull the motor and trans and go through everything.
I will then rebuild motor and tranny, High flow manifolds with 2 1/2 inch exhaust with dynomax super turbo mufflers, and removable pipes for 2 high flow cat's for our emissions test every year.  I will rebuild front and rear suspension, with KYB shocksd all around and rear sway bar.  Upgrade the braking system, 73 C-body disc brakes and new booster and master cylinder, 11x3 rear drums for now and disc eventually.  The motor will get a spread bore intake with a Demon sizzler Thermoquad, and will be running a HEI style dizzy and modern Denso high AMP alternator.  Will be running stock style rad, for now, with electric fans.  Upgrade the A/C system with Sanden compressor and new componets under the hood and eventually install a rear A/C system in the car.  Also be installing the cruise system from the 71 300 as well.
Interior will get the driver seat back fixed, torn from original elderly owner using it to climb in and out.  I will be installing a 200KPH speedo I am getting from Wishnu (strokerkid) in Holland.  Eventually I will install modern electric windows and door lock,  and modern sound system.
Car will be lowered about 2 inches and I'll be running 20x9 inch rims with 255/(35 or 40)20's all around.  replace all the woodgrain with new decals for now but eventually I would like to get the woodgrain either painted or airbrushed.
That will do it for now but I'm sure many more things will happen along the way.
Wish me luck....
