New guy intro

Seems to be the place to start. Have a 64 Hard top that I picked up to restomod. Have a 428 to swap in with a C6. The plan is to build to around 450 hp. add an Overdrive and a 3:55 gear set. Looking for a dependable driver that is quick enough to mess with these kids and their fart piped Hondas
Weighed the car a a local scale at 4600#. Not looking to gut the car or get extreme but looking for some weight saving ideas. Aluminum heads and intake, headers, alloy wheels. Might try some of the new coatings instead of carpet matting. Whole saw kit under interior panels. What else could save some weight without breaking the bank?
