I paid $350 for the shell, 95% of the work was completed in my driveway, including painting. 90% of the engine work was completed by me; I did not do the chemical cleaning, internal balancing, or port and polish and 3 angle valve job. I did all the body work and body line blending, over fender blending. I was not able to do any of the welding though, a neighbor helped with that. Also all the custom exhaust work was not done by me.
