Default 1972 145: The idk WTF I'm doing with it yet but I'll sure try

Current state:


So yeah, I saw this car the last week of June '18 during my daily CL trolling. Two days later, it popped up in the Orphan thread. I drove to Carlisle from Bel Air to look at it Thursday night (June 28?). Struck up a deal Friday night. Paid and brought it home Saturday morning (June 30).

Plans:
Brakes- source all the parts to rebuild the Girling brake system from RockAuto
Drivetrain- Flush fluids, good used radiator, maybe an m41 or t5 trans down the line, HIF6 carbs, D cam, steel cam gears
Source and install missing lenses
Suspension overhaul- new shocks/struts, bushings, used iPD front sway bar, vintage iPD front springs
Patch holes at bottom of the windshield
Drive to WVU for sophomore year
Drive to MountainMeet 2k19

As bought:
