--Awaiting Overkill Upper and Lower front control arms (economy version with anti-sway bar mounts). I haven't removed the stock control arms yet..... I hear it's gonna be a real pain in the rear.
--Front bushing replacement (rubber, I think)
--Some bigger anti-sway bars and shortened/stiffer springs
--Convert to 3-link/torque arm (already have 7.5" rear/parts)
--S-10 spindles and axle shafts for 5 lug conversion
--Bigger Brakes up front (S-10 ?)
--Rear disc brakes
--Obviously a master cylinder upgrade (?)
--Battery area and Spare Tire area Rust repair
--Fuel Tank cleaning and Fuel Pump replacement
--Door swap....located a nice pair locally
--Install a low compression, 150 hp, Buick 215 V8 and T-50 5-speed
* Note: Eventual plans to go with a stroked 215 using a Buick 300 crank getting displacement up to 260.... and eventually a T-5 5-speed with a 0.63 overdrive.
Basically, just trying to get it under it's own power to play with and then ........
the '73, mostly stock, GT Hatchback resto (man, it keeps getting pushed further back each year) .
