looks good.

a few things i noticed:

your rear shocks are too long.

the futaba mc230 speed control won't last too long under that load and what looks like a modified motor.

crp makes a nice "chassis stiffener kit", i'd look into it if i were you. it really helps take the "slop" out of the chassis.
they also have an adjustable motor mount, another manufacturer makes it too CRA is their name.

what body are you going to run? stock hardbody?

Nice. You should start a restoration thread in the classics section.
