Next barn/shop find (cat's out of the bag Blake!)
I had another 'can't pass it up' deal fall in my lap a couple days ago. This car was at a body shop for and engine and trans rebuild, as well as fuel and brake lines, shocks, and brakes. The work was done, but the bill wasn't paid in full. FF almost 8 years, and I was able to snag the car for the remainder of the bill! Yes- 8 years the car sat in the corner of the shop! 10 hours on the road today and she's home. Beside needing the rear quarters and drop offs, the rear rails are a little soft. Other than that, it's a pretty solid platform for whatever comes next. It's a 6 cyl automatic, but I've got a complete V8 drivetrain from another '66 right down to the dual exhaust that I can slap into it. I told BlakeTX I was toying with the idea of a street legal stock car- stripped interior, leave the exterior 'patina', but solid underpinings. The possibilities are endless, right?!? lol
Working on old cars teaches us patience... and every curse word imaginable!
