Vehicle: 1983 Imperial
Car was found mid-2012 in a horse field in southwest Arizona. It had been sitting for at least six or seven years. Originally bone stock, the EFI 318 and stock 904 were removed for a built small-block and kitted 904 from a Dodge Mirada project car that had extreme rear subframe rust and damage. The Imperial had just over 126,000 miles on it when I started work.
