History: This car was modified in the early 70's. It had International
quad headlights, FE grill, EH front and rear end, truck floor shifter
adapted, electric wipers (cable driven) and heater system. If anyone knows of this cars history drop me a line.
I'm changing the front of the car back to stock and adding a Smith's
'beehive heater'. I'll retain all other modifications and features. Of
course there will be sound system as well. I want the car to replicate
something that would have been built (mechanically) in the late 60's early
70's - hence the drum brakes and some period features etc.
