I was in the path.
Grabbed some welding helmets while wet sanding car and watched..
Total totality.. Was pretty cool.
Temp dropped like a bunch..
Then it was back to wet sanding on the car..ahahhaa

Hi Taco..
50/50 for sure on this ..
I'll be getting away with a bunch of budget crisis and laziness on this one.

Oh, and guess what.. Upon closer inspections.. Front rims are 14"..lol
I will take them off and get some 60's wide's slapped on them this coming Sat Going Fatty's all away around. weeeee.

Also..if you guys do Face Book.. I don't !
Check out : Ratty Muscle cars :
Also a few YouTube vids of the group..
Pretty darn cool and will be a great movement and path and direction.
Also #No shine **** list...

So keeping with my budget Rat rod Muscle look..
I did finally connect with one friend for the snorkel Hood scoop..
And I also have two choices of some "B&M" automatic snifters for the floor from another. hehehee.
I'll snag one or the other up of them tonight.

I rattle canned some of the interior pieces Flat Black and did some quick installation.
Pieces of the puzzle are starting to come together.
I'm still waiting on HEI distributor to land, and I will be purchasing a adapter plate instead of a intake manifold so I can run a 4 barrel .. Cost is
$23.00 instead of $175.00..
Stay tuned for a couple more quick Progress photo's..
Thanks for the peeps and following along everyone..

Stickers.. I need lots of stickers.
The "hiJackers" one should be here today...yeah.
Going on rear windows.

Well fellers.
I'm down to finishing bolting passenger seat down,
Change front tires over to some fat ones.

I got it licensed and insured...a whole 75.00 US for a year of insurance..
It's a really old car they insurance lady said...ahahahaaa.
She didn't see it..heheheee

Pretty much down to to all the servicing and checking things out mechanically part of it..
Oil, grease, fuel system, ignition stuff...speaking of which,
HEI landed... Should add another 200 HP..
This is actually the first car/truck with points... that their wasn't a extra set of points in glove box.".HUH " I found that particular strange...
Some one had a lot of faith

Thanks for the comments and views fellers..
See what I can get done in the next few days..
Enjoy and thanks for looking..
See you can have a lot of cheap fun with field find undesirable muscle cars..

i'd do the same deal, but only for a tri 5 chevy or similar.... 20 tamiya tractors should make a hell of an offer... lol and that's just the tip. my girlfriend would probably be so glad the crap is out of the basement, she'd kiss whoever traded ha-ha

Oh...temptation...
That's alot of trucks...ahahaa
Plus maybe a kiss....hummmmm.. ahahahaa
Thanks bigdog..I'll have to pass as Im not done or bored yet with it, Plus I drove it into town last night..The break the neck whip round look from people was very entertaining.
Had a police man leaving the store parking lot seriously slam on his breaks and pull over on side of road watching me pull into the parking lot..
"Geesh"..I didn't even rev it up or nothing...
Slap a hood scoop on something and people think it's fast..haaaaa
It drew people people around it like it was a super car or sumthin special.
Had a blast and it took 30 min to leave parking lot...and no surprise
..had another cop hiding down the road..Most likely waiting for me to leave in a big hurry...The sneaky buggers.. He was pretty disappointed Im sure as I even used my signals and just puttered down the street.

Long story short..
If you like a lot of attention, this would be a great car.
My work here is almost done..
Lots to do to get it tuned up, and give it some much needed love and a few more Horse power.
More soon..

well...
Lets see..
I removed the front white walls and had the 60's installed on front.
I ditched the hood scoop and let the bumb back down by de-gassing the rear shocks.
I then ran it out to my fathers, We timed it and he gave the carb a little tune up.
Better.....But it really needs a intake and 4 barrel carb.
Had an offer for it at the gas station i stopped at. Never heard back from the guy though..
I then drove it another 10 miles to a friends house.
Car seems to a good one. Needs lots of love though.
Pretty sure I'm just going to send it down the road and try and find an older 60's pickup.
Listed it on our area "craigs list" and have a few interested people going to stop today and give it a looksy..
Fun car with lots of potential, Just not sure I want to dump more money into it.
See what transpires today for the old girl.
