"The plan was to build a nice driver, not something over-the-top like the Pace Car. Something that anyone could build with the current aftermarket support offered today in the marketplace. Something I can jump in and drive anywhere.
The name of the build "reCoupe", refers to this coupe changing hands a few times and never been finished. So reCoupe means a new life for the car as it came back as something better than before.
We put this car together including paint and body in a matter of 3 months, though I had been collecting parts and pieces for about 9 months for the build. Next phase of the project will include cleaning up the engine bay, doing a set of AFR 165 heads and adding the trick vintage BXR intake."
Below is a brief overview of the build plans for the project.
Interior - The key here is the modernize the interior slightly and use a color palette that the factory never utilized. I think the brown and black contrasts nicely with the white.
Exterior – Just a clean simple exterior. Not much has to be changed to make a good looking coupe.
Suspension /Brakes – Car needs to be low, but I’m not planning on air ride with this project. Instead I plan on using Raceland coilovers will be used to get it on the ground.
