1970 3500S NADA, Bought it thinking the engine would be a nice transplant to an MG. Got it home and decided I liked the way it looked and ran, even with +200K on the engine. Decided to R&R the old beauty. Its a rolling project currently with brakes redone and rebuilt tranny sourced (BW35). Now has rebuilt 3.5 L with fast cam and 3.9 heads and Holley 4 bbl. Currently 'running in' the engine and sorting various issues. Still a unique ride and with power steering and A/C, my old old body enjoys having more amenities. Lovely weather this week in the Napa Valley so putting a few miles on her, went looking for photo ops yesterday.
