Hey everyone, been anxiously awaiting my chance to start up a build thread on my 68 coupe. The story on this one, I found it about a year ago and after buying, I had no place to put it, so I stashed it in my father-in-law's barn for a year while I added on to my garage to make room. The addition is done and the car is home. So now I feel like the dog who chased the car and now that I've caught it, I don't know what to do with it. It is definitely a project, but it has good bones, so to say. The Marti report says it was originally a sprint B package, candyapple red, with red interior. I'm not going back to stock on everything, I don't like red on red, so the plan is to go back to red exterior, but with black interior. It currently has almost no interior, so I'm starting from scratch anyway. Looking for input on where to go from here. Plans are to rebuild the front suspension - new LCA and UCA, bushings, maybe springs? also new shocks all the way around, new shackles in the rear to replace the 70s style longer shackles that are back there now, maybe new leafs? The wiring worries me, I was thinking of a complete rewire with AAW update kit, but maybe just need the engine compartment? I have big dreams and a small budget so I will be doing a lot of learning as I go, but excited to start making some progress!
