Lot's of progress this week ! Getting the rear spring fitted was a major accomplishment . Got to sit thru the rebuild of the tranny . It was in overall good shape but a couple bearings were replaced as borderline . Got the motor apart and to the machine shop for cleaning and inspection . The crankshaft will have to be turned , have to see how the bore cleans up .
I bought this car from a good friend that had brought the car from Arizona . This has been a bit of a blessing for lack of rust . Unfortunatally , Dave won't be able to see the completion as he passed away . The car will be named in his honor , but haven't decided between ; Dave ( "Dave's not here !" or his handle " The Road dog " ( which he was ) . Maybe too much info .
A couple before / after pics . I started the project in November of 2009 where it sat in pieces until now .
