She doesnt run yet :pound: , she needs a lot of cleaning, and some fixing, but eventually , I think I can get her to shine nicely.

9.25" rear end probably somewhere between 2.7 and 3.2 gears, should have all kinds of good stuff there.
Nice find - these are getting really scarce.  Too many were used as engine donors when people weren't collecting old cop cars.

I like the stance, for an old car, it sits very well. I've been trying to buy one for awhile, always afraid to pull th etrigger. But I am noticing that the prices are going up.......and the quantity available down, so just went for it.

Yeah, for sure. The rust they often got and the numbers around here that weren't rusty didn't help the matter either.
