Hi everyone new to this site and restoring a 65 back to what my father had when he was 18 a challenge to say the least. Starting out with a 65 A code coupe that has had some good repairs I.e. rear quarters replace outer doghouses and from fenders and inner fenders I guess thatís what they are called and some really crappy work done like floor panels so I am starting the reconstruction of a solid car purchased a rotisserie and started the tedious pan repairs
Looking forward to some advice and comments still gotta locate the holy grail as it seems a 4 speed to put in it some knucklehead tried to turn it into an automatic using a C4 from a truck so thatís gone but it was an original 289 with 3 speed car so the bones are there

Having just recently run some 2.5" pipes through a Total Control Products "X-brace" I foresee some likely difficulties running dual exhaust through that version.
And welcome to the forum!

Well managed to horse in the new driver side pan and frame rail patch. Cleaned it up today and laid down more POR-15 to protect it for the future
