It doesn't run at the moment, but that's fine with me. I'm planning a 3800 Series II SC swap for it. I will start working on it, and making repairs until I locate a motor and tranny for the swap. The main things that I'll need, are some body panels, trim, seat covers, and headliner. Here she is:

I will definitely post a build thread. It will be a little ways off before I really get started on it, I have a 96 2-door Tahoe Z-71 that I have to get on the road first. I can't wait to get started on this one though!

Looks awesome, what kind of paint scheme are you planning?

I' m thinking of about three options. Repaint silver, either stock or Bright Silver Metallic like I had on my 97 Camaro. Find a good medium shade of blue that I would like. Lastly, I thought about somehow coming up with a design using the silver and medium blue. Something that is not an over/under two-tone (breaking at the molding), nothing that makes the car look like my life has not progressed past the 1980's, something where the main color is blue, but the silver is used to accent certain aspects of the body. Way too early to make a decision yet. I want to repair the damaged pieces, convert to a sunroof, and swap in a 3800 SC, before I worry about the exterior too much. I will paint the engine bay, and undercarriage black so they will work no matter what color(s) I decide to use.

Awesome, congrats! Is the motor/trans shot in it? If not I suggest getting it on the road ASAP and enjoy it for a bit. You'll also be working out suspension issues and such. How many miles? Auto or 5 speed?

Yeah, supposedly it has a FUBARred piston. I haven't looked at it yet. I didn't think to check the mileage, I was short on time when I unloaded it. Put it in a storage building for the moment. If I can fix the engine relatively easily, I may get it back on the road before the swap. I have to change a caliper that's locking up too. It's an auto, so I intend to keep it that way.
