That is a beautiful piece of art! Keep us posted! I have a 79 chief that's been in the works for a while now. Trying to finalize mechanical before I get to body and paint.

That is intensely beautiful. Man oh man. I like the look of the those aftermarket, yet traditional-looking wheels.

Was that an original I6 Golden Eagle or did you swap it? I never knew the GE was available with the I6 until I saw Dustin's and one other GE J10 on Craigslist.

The Golden Eagle package could be ordered with any base drivetrain. But it is weird that a cheap I6 3-speed manual would have an expensive Golden Eagle package added.
