you guys are too kind with the compliments -
I've been fortunate to obtain a few half @$$ skills in life ( or so I think lol) and have some pretty good folks working for me that pitch in every so often when airplane work slows...
We'd go broke building cars for a living - kinda why I stick with corporate aircraft where OCD is a desired trait. I just hope it'll hold up to the flogging I plan on dishing out. My dad always said I was hard on equipment!

That's a great color choice, it really goes well with the chrome and stainless accents and those nice meaty tires.

Thank You!
The car was originally Red... thats a ton of red to deal with so, I chose 1967 Elkhart Blue but in base/clear. ( Chromabase) and the interior was Med Fawn Metallic and I also used Chromabase base/clear on it as well. The door panels and seats were Fawn Vinyl/cloth (67-7415)( it was a 6XX?? "Fleet" interior) it had a rubber floor... going back stock but NOS NEW vinyl and cloth on the seats and doors - same color Fawn ( Ivy gold is close as I can get you for reference -Impala color - same but diff. I am going Ivy Gold carpet... The Elkhart Blue was a Corvette only color that year - I love it also - not too blue - not too silvery...I think it's perfect!
Glad someone else besides me likes it!

Back in high school we used to call that "ice blue metallic" My 66 Nova was a similar color with a black interior. Those black interiors look great but can be absolutely brutal in the summer.

I understand what you mean about the red. I've owned 3 vintage Chevy's that were red with a red interior (not by choice) including my current 65.

Nice job on the B body!

It's amazing what paint, clear and solvents cost today and I thought they were high in 1994!

did some homework on x pipes trying to see the best size junctions for flow etc...there's some good engineering that has been done out there that helps! I took 2 90's, plasma cut the ovals and rotary filed to fit then tigged em up... I think it's gonna work just fine.

not a lot done in the last few weeks - aligned doors - wanted to do fenders too but... had to install the AC which led to installing everything else you see due to mounting relays and switches for the digital dash and the Classic Auto Air AC...once I get finished with all that - then maybe I can install and align fenders... maybe...

I thought about putting AC in my 67 Wagon but I'm not really Impressed on how the AC kit looks. You'll have to let us know on how well the AC works

It's actually a very good system - I like the uncluttered firewall approach it offers. The pics I put up are kindof unfair since I took them as I was fitting the blockoff plates before final... they were just hanging by one screw...although I think I can improve them and probably will... all other components are first rate and the pre install testing is thorough...instructions are kinda vague but when you build a one year body style car, you kinda hafta adjust or fab just about every component to meet your specs and or the cars uniqueness. Their customer service is really really good - they call back and they know the product. I'll put up pics again once it's all in and finished. these may have been a bit premature - I had to show some progress on this damn thing!!!

I have the same system on my 66 and really like it. I did add a 90 degree spark plug boot to the evaporator drain tube outside of the cover.

Hey 9Teen,

I'm doing some of the same stuff to my 67 as you are including hydroboost, but no body off & nowhere near as nice. One question I have is what are you doing for fuel pump & tank? I've got a ZZ502 with a Holley red pump mounted in front of the tank. From what I've found our tanks seem to be too shallow for an in-tank setup. And the spare tire depression in the trunk really screws it up.

my Biscayne trunk is flat..spare is on an angle dead center behind the seat. tank should be same as any B body...22? gal
yup..shallow...i used the aeromotive stealth 340...kinda spendy but im no fan of inline pumps..i like em to stay wet. anyway...i used the stock tank and the aeromotive kit...drivers side fwd corner...it fits!! i did space the tank away from the body at the front about 1/2 inch w rubber blocks.

drivers side top corner - and yes..it is the original tank - I just cleaned it and painted it with some wicked aircraft stuff we use inside turbine inlets... it won't come off at 600mph so I should be okay...should be...lol
just remember to space it away from the body at the forward end - the pump top and fittings are 6AN - so you'll want the room - get longer bolts for the tail end @ the straps - invisible once the bumpers are on.

Slow progress... been more involved under the dash than on the body. ( no under dash pics - don't wanna bore ya'll) Had time to paint the inside of the "new" decklid and hang it on the car.
and for my own enjoyment.. I stuck the 427 badges on the fender for a sec just to give myself a little smile.

I just finished my ZZ502 install into my '67. I used the Tanks Inc drop in full pump meant for TBI and then regulated it down to 6 psi for the carb. It works very well and is surprisingly quiet. I did end up cutting my trunk floor and adding a box to it over the fuel pump, which I can convert to an access door if needed in the future. I doubt I will have to do that since I am able to reach everything from underneath the car. PM me if you need any further information, as I don't want to distract from this great thread.

I almost went that route - those are nice as heck tanks...650 bucks or so? I was feeling held hostage when I dropped the 1200 on the aeromotive 340 setup and chose not to replace the tank. Had to save some cash - the dang aeromotive fuel log was pushin 300 bucks I think.

been off the project for awhile - just thinking about routing the 3" pipe over the axle slowed me down - got the tailpipe on the pass side figured out - going to exit behind rear tire. drivers side to follow!

changed my approach once I got the X pipe welded - back to front made it easier to figure out... meet in the middle - then I'll sort out the tubing from the x pipe to muffs.
