Project Outline
  The1971 in dune beige has been fully restored and updated to the 76 and newer style. Pre 74 had a smaller motor, 3speed trans, bench seats, no roll bar ect, ect. However the 71's are just cool, they are very basic inside, they have metal door inside trim & three way rear doors, they look real tough but they lack a lot of the modern amenities people enjoy. In this rig we have tried to achieve the best of both worlds by adding some modern touches while retaining its rustic charm. The following is a list of the things we did to her.
