Hi guys.. Spring has arrived here in Denmark. I finally Got to take wanda out on our first drive this year. Here she is in all her glory with the new to me 700r4 trans installed. It is finally looking like it works the Way i thought, however it has been a lot of testing and adjusting to get the tv cable to function right. I bought a install kit with a geometri bracket for the carb from Tci. It works now but it was not wery good quality at all. But now she has all 4 gears with lockup working and kickdown when i stomp on it. But getting there was not easy. Now im going to drive it and see how it behaves, and pray to our father that it dosent burn the trans up. Im hoping that its adjustet good enough. But for now injoy the pictures.

Wanda's looking mighty fine! I'll bet she gets a lot of attention!

Fingers crossed on the transmission, but I'm sure it's all good. Smile

Beautiful ride! But I'm curious, it looks like you have a 75 front nose, 73 tail lights and the small side (opera) windows. So I'm assuming it's a 73???

Thank you guys. Im hoping it will be. If it was in the process of burning the cluthes, i assume the trans fluid would smell burnt? It shifts right and has kickdown so im guessing its ok. The cable cant be pulled any further at wot as is. I hope i did it right, im a little nervous cause Nobody i know is any smarter than me on this.

Wanda started out life as a 75, but she was rustet out beyond gone when i Got her. The rearend suffered some damage and since i liked the 73 style better, i just made my own version since it would be expensive to have a complete rearend shipped here. I used camaro taillights to mimik the 73 style. I tucked the bumpers and narrowed them. I made my own vinyl roof crome since that was beat to hell. And put a 68 camaro hood hump on it. I made alot of other small changes along the Way. A Harley Davidson fuel filler lid recessed in the quarter. Rear license plate recessed in the rear bumper, a front airdam made from sheet metal. The colour is hard on pictures, but it is Black with a ton of gold pearl wich makes it green  but Black at Night and brown in sunlight. 

Next on my list is a polished stainless exhaust with headders. If my trans proffs to live. I hope i can also ad a new cam and aluminium heads and someday a sniper fuel injection. However i Got a nasty scratch in a quarter last time i parked it ( a stupid woman with a shoulderbag) so its going in the paintshop soon. 

Im happy you like it, its the only 75 in my country. There is 2 73s so not Many know what it is.

That is some really nice fab work you have done. Car looks great. I like that color.

The June issue of Hot Rod has a really good write up about TV cables and adjustments, It lists part numbers for brackets, cables, etc. The article is called "TV Guide". A good read if you are still not sure on the trans.

Im glad you like it. Everything was done on a budget so im getting there one step at the time. The paint was actually a Nice surprice because i did not know how it would look. I Got alot of solid Black paint for free, Black was not my first choice but i thought it was cheap and i could live with it. I had some gold pearl from another project and figured i would Spice it up a little, so i mixed it in and the colour turned out like this. I myself love it so it was a win for me.

I can unfortunatly not see hot rod mag articles, for some reason us here in Europe cant open any articles. But Thank you for the info. 
Im sure my trans is ok now. I have been driving it all weekend and it shifts Nice at the right mph and gives a Nice kickdown when i put my foot in it. I had some problems because the geometri bracket that is boltes to the trottle arm of the carb would move backwards. Every time i had been at wot it would move a little back making the shifts feel Wrong and very soft. It is corrected now and i belive it is ok. 

I love this car and im keeping it as long as im able to drive. And im not even close to Being done modefiying it to make it behave like i want it. 

Thank you for all your kind words.
