Installed new brake booster and master cylinder on mom's 65 as well as fixing the accelerator pump, then installed ignition switch in my 66, no power getting to the starter solenoid, but i am getting it past the firewall, so probably a break in the harness, wired up fan and distributor(pertronix) and electric fuel pump, I may actually get to attempt to start it at some point soon.............

So, today I was able to get the engine to turn over with the use of the key, after figuring out the neutral safety from the auto that it used to be.....now the only issue is figuring out the firing order as it doesn't wont to run more than about 2 seconds, but hey closer than I was yesterday

Pulled the old leaves, old bushings. Installed poly bushings, 4.5 Reverse eyes, Konis. Then just about popped a vessel pushing the car 180 in the garage so I can get ready to pull the 289, put in the t5/302 and front suspension. Hope those Rev eyes settle a little more.

Put new parking/turn signal lights up front on my 65 after the 54 year old wiring practically crumbled apart when I pulled the fiberglass valance to repair it. It's all good now!

so finally got free from working during this pandemic. Installed a 2 inch carb base spacer so the air cleaner would clear the distributor. Also started wiring an aux. fuse block with fused disconnect. Air cleaner sits a bit high above the top of the fender, going to have to figure out a hood to get around that. Also started it and let it run for a bit.

Curious to see what your hood setup will be.

Scored a running '67 C4 with torque convertor, flex plate, linkage, dipstick and tube, cross member, PRN321 shifter with bezel and bucket and all the bolts! Donor car had an oil leak but it'll clean up...
