  1. Ok so ive been re doing my whole drive train in my 53 customline since october. Put in a 302 c4 maverick rear. re wired the whole thing and fabbed up most of the parts. Interior is being done as we speak but yesterday was a milestone as i fired it up for the first time. this is my first build so im pretty proud. hope the video links work.
