Picked this up a few months ago:


Pretty solid and mostly complete..No motor/trans..
Very little rust. Gonna build it for the wife..Itll be powered by a 292 I-6 and a 200r4 trans and a blazer rear..
She wants it white with pink flames and pink roof..Just like my 50 2-door..(mines flat black with metallicgrey flames and roof)

That car is choice!

Could you please post pics of the interior? I would particularly like to see one showing how the A-833 shifter clears the seat. Thank you.

KZHurley, what front suspension do you have in the car. Specifically, what is the P.S. pump driving?
NICE car by the way. And I love the concept for your honey's car.

Thank you for the pics. That's a good looking interior, too.

Just so you know, I am a total 348 fan, so a car like yours just doesn't get any better than that!

Thanks...
I'm currently very slowly putting together the tripower for it..It was originally a tripower motor but of course the 30 yrs it sat around all the carbs came up missing..I do have 3 rochester side inlets and the intake just need to convert the end carbs..And figure out what to do for aircleaners.

Very nice! I'm sure Arnie's drooling, and it sounds like Raycow's in love. Even I'm envious; I'd love a W-motor for my OT, DD, truck. I can't figure out what the spherical looking thing is by the thermostat housing? You and Dean50 have taken the same approach in having a factory appearance; you nailed it. Maybe an LS style motor and automatic OD transmission for your wife's car. I'm on board with the white paint, and even the pink top, but not so much with the flames. Clean, simple, and unassuming is how I like things. Keep us up to date on both these cars progress. Butch/56sedandelivery.

P.S., I'm sure there's a lot of guys interested in the rack and pinion steering conversion.

That would be my Off Topic, Daily Driver truck; a 1982, 3/4 ton Silverado, that has had ALL the trim and emblems removed, and the mounting holes welded up, when the truck was repainted to a single color, from the tan and white, to all tan by a friend about 9 months ago. Replaced the windshield and backglass "chrome" gasket with the plain, black rubber ones. It does still have the chrome bumpers. I have put later model, eight bolt, aluminum wheels on it, and a Rhino-Liner bed liner sprayed in (sure looks good, but it's a pain to keep that stuff clean). The truck has been in the family since it was new; it's currently on it's fourth engine and transmission. That truck has served me well. I still have new carpeting, door panels, visors, seat upholstery, a Mexican blanket for the roof panel, and a wooden rimmed steering wheel to install. I call the truck, "Buckboard", because it rides like one, and the color just looks "western". I'd like a new truck, but I have too much of "me" in the truck to replace it; I'm sure you know what I mean. Butch/56sedandelivery.

Off topic, but noting your location. I had Amish guys from Millersburg build a barn for me in Ohio, many years ago.

Been a long while and sometimes things get put on the back burner,but I'm actually starting to make progress on the 4-door. I changed directions and I'm currently working on getting a 4.2l i6 and a 4l60e out of an 03 trailblazer to fit. Custom oil pan and wiring mostly. Pretty close to having engine/trans installed for the last time.
