My 67 Biscayne - 250 inline 6/3 on the tree...now a 426.5 CID LS3 (Carbed)... it's been hard so far locating parts for this specific year to do this but I had some great help from 2DRpost forum website and KWhizz ( Ken) via emails etc...

some pics of where it's at so far...

I'll try to be chronologically correct with the order...
enjoy -

Motor is a new GMPP LS3 Block - 317 GM LS Heads done over by Red Man in Irving TX - Callies crank - Eagle H beam Rods, Diamond pistons - Edelbrock Vic Jr intake and a David Cook Built 850 Holley.
Headers are 67-69 Camaro LS swap Dynatechs - Holley 302-1 ( I think) oil pan - Wegner Motorsports accessory drive - Century Transmission 200R4 - Circle D billet TQ converter. I tossed on the Holley coil covers trying to emulate a BBC with my creation here...

Body is on the rotisserie
had some rust in the rear fenderwells and behind the front wheels at the A pillar locations on those fenders. Bought what panels are avail - the rest were/are being done in my shop. Floors were in AMAZING condition.
Sprayed Lizard skin insulation this weekend to the ceiling/firewall and floor. Once metalwork is done - hope to have the body back on the chassis within a week or two and start plumbing. Did the Aeromotive 340 Stealth fuel pump for carbed system in the stock tank and painted tank also... ready to finish bodywork and get some color on this big girl.

Yours is AMAZING...I'm just shooting for halfway decent. You are definitely one of the folks I absorb a lot of specific info from - so thank you for that! ( ordered seatbelts from your supplier too! LOL)
This forum and also 2door post forum are great simply due to the amount of technical folks in the herd. 90% (or more)of the posters have serious knowledge on the topic... I looove technical knowledge!! now if I could just get it to stick in my itty bitty brain!

Tim, great job! Thanks for the excellent pictures. Looks like you had a good start with that car. Did you have to splice in a new piece of frame?

No sir... Had very isolated but severe rust at the A pillar locations and I did fab and section in about a 14"L part on the outboard side& bottom of the passenger side frame - like a filler - there's a notch there to account for the rear front fender mount - you could put your fist thru the hole. ( it was rusted out too... made it all and it was part of what got overlayed with the 4130 sheet.luckily the rust was very isolated - everything else was super nice. Boxed the whole thing between the tires minus a small amount in the center on each side ( just did inside and bottom there). When I fab the trans mount I plan on doing some sort of "X" and it will attach to boxed areas fwd and aft with some perch type mounting. I also may still bend a piece from the crossmember where the upper links from the diff. attach and around to the frame - like a 90 deg. just have to see... I also added a piece laterally between the rear shocks...4130 tubing - .090 wall 2" diameter - at the top of the arch over the rear end. offers some side to side rigidity but not much else. - short story - no splicing - just more metal!

This is really excellent work and very tastefully executed. I especially like the orange coil covers that look like big block valve covers. Also the air cleaner decal is a very subtle touch.

Thank you so much for the compliments. If I can just keep the junebugs outta the paint when that time comes I'll be happy.
Now if I can just find the A pillar interior plastic trim so I don't have to make that I'll be good. Have some from an Impala or Caprice ( Metal - OEM) but they are 1/2 inch either shorter or longer than the biscayne parts ( I cant remember - I've slept since then) - allegedly the windshield on Biscayne/Belair are that much shorter or taller than the Impala's... in case anyone knows of any of them...I'm lookin!

I'll bet the Impala 4-door sedan (post) A-pillar trim would work.

Yeah - I dunno... I did buy the metal OEM from 1967 (unopened dealer stock!) set off ebay and they're nice but too long...would love my originals to be metal - mine are all cracked up at the top...impossible to use. I may do a little chop and channel job on the ones I got off ebay and see if I can make em fit. Don't know why they're plastic - it was a very very bottom baseline car - fleet interior... radio delete - heat only. seems tho some were and some weren't plastic - go figure!...the angles at roofline fore and aft are a bit diff also than the caprice ones I have.

And another source may be other 1967 (or possibly 1968) GM B body 4 door sedans like the Olds 88, Pontiac Catalina and Buick Le Sabre.

finally got the underside and firewall primed and painted - A little MIL-P-23377 we had leftover from a clients aircraft job - and some Sherwin Williams Acry Glo black - w/ teflon ( so Beemers and armadillos won't stick to the bottom!)
hope to slap it on the chassis pretty quick!
