DRestoration is now well underway.  This car was built in the winter 1962-3 time frame.  David Keyes is doing the frame and body panel work.   The frane and body work is now nearly completed.  In the coming days, we will be fitting the engine block/bellhousing.  Some of the next items on the schedule are building the weedburner headers and radius rods.  The car was lengthened in late 1964 and it has now been returned to its original wheelbase.  We plan to debut the car to show at the 17th annual Pontiac Heaven weekend in April 2015 at Wild Horse Pass.  Upholstery is scheduled for early Feburary.ouble click to edit

An Original Diest Ring Slot chute has been located and purchase from Bill Turney.  It is the exact same model as was originally on the car in 1962.
