    Im having the drivers side lower quarter panel replaced right now. I should have it back on monday. Ill post more pics and some questions for all the 74 owners. No sure if I want to retore to original or restomod it. I have to go over engine and trans numbers first to see if they are in fact original. Ill post the question and pics on Monday ( if I have it back ). It is a cool car for sure. I love the second gens. Big Bumpers especially...

    IMO, I wouldn't mod it. There's not that may 74's that I see on the street these days.

    If the car is indeed low miles and numbers matching, I would definitely restore to factory original. Not many of these around anymore because everyone modded the heck out of them back in the day.

    I agree with COPO, I wouldn't mod it too much. Perhaps paint and correct stripes which is my favorite stripe scheme!!! Start a build thread. Would love to follow it.

    UPDATE
    i recently purchased this car from the original poster in Cleveland. He started some body work as stated but I completely striped the car to do a frame off rebuild and removed any prior body work and replaced with sheet metal. Iv'e only had the car since April but hope to be completed by June. It is a numbers matching Z28 car, engine, trans, have matching vin numbers. Plan to build a resto mod. Car is going to be built as a period correct hotrod for 1980 want it to look like the type of muscle car I owned shortly after high school. Planning to run cragar 5 spoke wheels. Motor has already been rebuilt dyno tested at 375 hp. Will post some pics shortly.
