Hello:

We have a 1973 Bonneville 4 door sedan;  W Code 455 Engine; 71K original miles; Carter Q-jet, automatic thermostat AC (being repaired as of this morning); cruise (works); nearly perfect interior.  Here are a few pics from when we picked it up and how it looks after wet sanding the hood (with a friend).  We are doing our own wrenching except AC, tires, exhaust, and paint/body.  More photos, plans, and information will be posted in the progression sub-site.

We will be installing HEI ignition and converting the "W" code 455/single exhaust to "Y" dual exhaust with some nice DynoMax UltraFlo mufflers for a deep note.  Should get more horse, better gas mileage, and better throttle response without getting silly.
