Well it's been two years since my dad bought the car, and we finally shot the paint on it last night. It looks awsome. All that is left is the finishing work, buffing, crome, interior, etc.

Day he brought it home:

The old straight six cars are great to use as a platform as they never made enough power to tweak the car. I am hoping the car is a stick, a T56 from a late model Camaro, Firebird, Viper or Mustang Cobra would be a Great Donor, you could run steep gears out back and still get great gas mileage with the double overdrive!

Believe it or not, but it still needs wetsanded and buffed. My dad just couldn't wait, he had to put the lights in it so he could drive it down to the corner and back.
