I've been doing a lot of research, studying pictures and other builds. I have been developing my first car build strategy. I have been going back and forth between restoring the car to as good of factory as I can or doing it as a restomod. Keep the parts that make it look good, but replace everything else with modern components. Before I do anything I want to figure out the path I'm taking to the best of my ability. My concept is to pay homage to Gran Turismo Omologato by transforming the Lemans into a comfortable Grand Touring car. NOT a GTO clone. A car that the family can jump in and go for a road trip. So first and foremost safety and reliability, then performance. My build schedule would be something like this: 1. Leave the 350 but freshen it up with parts to make it reliable. Currently it has a 2 bbl so I'd like to upgrade it to a quad jet possibly. For the fun factor add dual exhaust etc. Also reconnect the factory AC. It's been disconnected for Lord knows how long. 2. The car has power brakes, but upgrade then to four wheel disks. 3. Suspension upgrades (I need to research this better to determine the route I'd like to go.) lower the car maybe 1.5" or so. This will depend on the rims I go with. 4. I'm not sure exactly what I want to do on the interior, but would like to upgrade the seats to something more comfortable for long drives. The sound system will be upgraded but done as a hidden system. Having done sound systems on several cars over the years this is one area that I have the most expertise with. 5. Paint and body, unfortunately my Grandfather seamed to use the bumper and fenders to "feel" his way into the garage. While not extensive it will need to be addressed. The entire front clip needs to be pulled off and re aligned. The lower vanlence needs to be replaced and while it's off I'd like to add a chin spoiler I've seen on other rides. The trunk has a luggage rack, ick! That has to go! The color of the car also has my attention... While not horrible, I'm not a huge fan of yellow. This one is tough as I know what it takes to properly change the color of the car and I don't know if I want to pull a frame off to change the color of the car. This one I'm still contemplating. Again my idea to to make a comfortable clean looking Lemans not GTO with some modern performance and style upgrades to help clean up it's lines and make it a reliable ride. Opinions?
