My 72 Formula 400 is nearing completion
« on: August 20, 2019, 09:09:44 AM »
This was a project I took over from a local almost 3 weeks ago. He already had the incorrect 73 interior for it but everything was brand new so I went ahead and used it. I like the deluxe 73 interiors better anyway.  I still have a few touches to do on the interior but it is getting close. There wasn't even a dash in it when I brought it home.

That is a really great color as well, do you happen to know the paint code/ color?

I was able to make it there and back with only minor issues. The car still has several things to address but I was very pleased with it's 750+ mile road trip as the maiden voyage!
