72 LWB Cheyenne BB 700r4 Basket Case

thought I would share some of this, although I bought and started this project about 3 years ago, I am nearing the end of this Project PO had it for 2 years sitting in his driveway In Long Island in pieces. He bought it from a retired NYC cop who had to many projects . I wanted air/ auto / BB and so it began.

Re: 72 LWB Cheyenne BB 700r4 Basket Case

The paint job look sweet from here . Did maaco also do the body work. If so they did a nice job. You look close to driving her. Is the wiring already done or are you using the old wiring ? George
