Description for Chevrolet Caprice 1973

The time has come, I need to let go of this car. I bought it in 1987, in Barrysville Arkansas with 22,000 miles on it, drove it about 100,000 miles and eventually parked it in 1998 with the intention of fixing it up, but that day never came. It's an original big block car with the original 454. It's got some rust around the rear wheel openings and under the doors, but all in all it's solid. When I parked it, it had just spun a main bearing. I've torn the engine down to hot tank prep. The suspension is a fresh rebuild; I put heavier springs up front (500 ppi vs. stock 400 ppi) and station wagon springs in back (173 ppi vs. stock 123 ppi) with gives it a very subtle rake. So the car is partially disassembled. The engine is completely stripped, the transmission (a th400) is gone (so is that friend) and I have every part, nut, bolt tagged. I am missing one screw that was part of the rear light assembly (behind the bumper. It's been in two fender benders in its life. Hit in the right quarter before I owned it and hit in the left quarter in 1988. They pounded it out well and didn't slather it with mud. I will gladly answer any questions you may have. Thank you for looking.
Some more info... I do have the trunk lid; I mounted it after I took the pics. In addition to all of the original engine parts, I have a set of Hooker Competition headers with very little use on them, an Edelbrock dual plane aluminum intake- the egr model and a Holley 750 vacuum secondary carburetor. I installed stronger universal joints in the driveshaft and had it balanced. The car has been stored in a garage since late 1998 when I parked it.
