Finally back to work on my Cutlass, after years of it sitting (for those who read my old build thread years ago) its back and the progress continues, here are some pictures of what ive gotten so far. It sat with the frame stripped down for years and now ive got the UMI front suspension on and it sitting back on its wheels, prepping the 455

Looks great! My Monte has similarly sat with the front tore off for years and I also plan on putting it back together this spring. Looking forward to more pics of progress.

thanks guys, I had the heads reworked and am going to put a nice cam in it and update the ignition to HEI, going to put a decent intake on it as well. Just going to run the stock high performance exhaust manifolds. Should put down some decent reliable power. Hopefully UMI starts making more of the chassis bracing stuff besides just the rear shock tower brace, I have pretty much everything they sell so far besides I need to pick up some shocks

I need to get to the local scrap yard and pick up a jeep steering shaft and have it powder coated. I had my blazer spindles and backing plates coated and they turned out amazing. Basically everything on this car that could be unbolted and sent in will come back powder coated or clear coated in one way or another
