So, at any rate never considered an F-Body before. Retired from the Army (combat arms) a few years ago and the itch for a new project was overwhelming. Was looking for a '69-'72 Old Cutlass and this '78 T/A pops up on Craigslist up in NJ. Crappy weather, but drove up and looked over, bought the following weekend. Seller did not know what he had.
As I've gone thru it, discovered she's an original WS6 4spd car someone at some point put a TH400 into. T-tops leak and discovered a swamp in the rear passenger floor and seat pan, I'm sure most of you know the story. There's a little bit of rust (minor) and someone welded box steel bars on as sub-frame connectors.
I'm working on it w/ my boys and teaching them what my dad and grandfather taught me when I was a teen. Already replaced the shocks w/ Bilsteins, and wrapped the Snowflakes in Cooper 235/275s. Speedtech control arms on the way, along w/ all new bushings including Prothane body bushings. Ordering new rear springs today, trying to decide between Eaton ML231s and Belltech (both stock height and rate).
Have a pristine set of 4th gen seats I'm waiting to install, and a matched set of 3rd gen mirrors too. Goal is a daily driver quality garage queen who gets paraded around on weekends.
There are many like her... but this one is mine! Who doesn't love a #redtransam...
