Default 1985 Texas Unit 5-637

Thought it was time to post some photos of our SSP restoration progress.


Trunk pan and rear panel were shot, best way to go was a replacement.

New well being test fitted.



Replacement fender flairs being prepped and tested.

Playing around with the engine and k frame.

Thanks, Mike

Hi Chris,
Yes it was raced for a number of years in Texas and AZ by the same deputy. I posted some photos in the WELCOME forum under "Re-introduction". It is going to be a lot of work but it's all fun. Here are a couple more photos.


Here it is in the second color for Bastrop County Texas.

And how it looked marked for Maricopa S.O when I drove it off the trailer.

I think I've gone "belly up" on this restoration.

if you use a rotisserie just one time......you will ask yourself how you ever restored a car without one. Same with a lift, and a dedicated paint booth....and a blasting cabinet big enough for a fender.......and a high pressure parts washing cabinet......lol

That is some serious metal work you are doing for sure. I am very glad to see it getting saved.

Jim is right - every project is an excuse to buy a new tool!

Nice job on the resto. Thanks for keeping us updated...
