History
Traded a beat Daytona for it in Arizona in 2004. Previous owner said it just needed a tune-up to start, but after checking it out at my shop found the engine was blown with holes burned into 2 pistons and burned valves! Prior to selling and closing my shop in Arizona in 2004 I built a new engine for it, made 5 trips with it back and forth to SE Oklahoma, last one on 1200 miles of black ice on December 21st as the only vehicle still on I-40 to be moving. Everything else was off the road, in the ditch, crashed, or spun out, including troopers and plow/sanding trucks! That was a really scary drive!

Modifications

Drivetrain
Built the engine (380 hp), replaced the old 'Quadrajet' with a new Edelbrock performer 4 bbl, electric fuel pump, rebuilt the tranny & rear end, rebuilt the power steering pump, and replaced the brake master cylinder and booster, installed a new radiator, custom built 2" split exhaust system w/dual pipes prior to selling my full service shop in Arizona and retiring to Oklahoma off the lake in 2004. Last year, October 2015, replaced the entire AC system & heater core, and replaced the 7 year old Interstate battery with a new one. (kept the old battery for backup for my auxillary generator)
Interior
Beige & cream camper special interior. 2014 rebuilt tilt steering column, replaced all interior lighting with LED. Pulled headliner out and re-glued it, repainted glove box door and dash board, added new velour dash cover. 2015 replaced both door window power motors and power lock actuators, and installed digital LED gauges.
Exterior
2015 replaced grille & added LED tail lights, head lights, added an LED brake/turn signal light bar on tailgate, and steps at both doors.
Audio
Still debating on this. Original factory AM/FM stereo still working well. Installed a 40 channel CB and scanner for my sheriff security patrols.
Suspension
Replaced all shocks, control arms, steering linkage, spindles, front brake calipers, rotors, rear brake cylinders and brakes, spring kits, and both drums in 2004. Aligned front end to my specifications.

2004 added 15x8" chrome reversed wheels with 'baby' moons & P235/15 new tires
