this is going to be a lesser project, but a project nonetheless.
I expect few people to know or understand this topic.

this is what I'm starting with:

those who don't what it is, too bad. HAHAHHAAAA
it's a 290 typhoon with an aftermarket aluminum intake (which may go bye bye) and holley/motorcraft 4 barrel.
first step is to make it run.
This is my second AMC. I must be losing my mind.

it is a rare car, are you going to restore or mod it?

Some updates, get it mechanically sound and drive it.
Someone put a sunroof in it at some point and the iffy repaint...
Not resto material.
