Well after what seems like an eternity she is finally home . I have been working an her for some time a piece here some paint there . She has been in my dads pole barn since I painted her almost 15 years ago . I finally got up off my ass -Well actually I was forced my dad bought a 48 Ford convertible but thats another story . Her she is fresh off the car trailer my 66 SS 396 Chevelle 4 speed. Still needs a lot of work like a whole new interior and I am going to be putting in a crate BB and redoing the motor that in her now. I need to get the original rims sandblasted so I can paint them its got mid 80's Monte Carlo rims on her now. I can't believe the tires held air dry rotted to crap.

As you can see by the swirl marks I just started to color sand and buff the paint

I am afraid to touch the dice . There from the 80's when I was running the car as a driver . I think they will disintegrate if disturbed .

I love the car! I had a 65 chevelle 4 speed, I dropped in a 572" BB. It was almost undrivable with the limited tire space on the 65, Been on the lookout for a 66-67 for a year, all seem too spendy or in such poor shape its not worth purchasing

Hate to tell you what the price was in 1984.. I was able to still buy new GM 1/4 panels I have the passenger side still in a box but the drivers side was hit and cheaper to replace than fix . Very little rust on this car unusual for a NY car .

Very nice! I know you mean about finally getting around to it, I started a major overhaul on my Comet and got distracted a little ways into it. Took about 5 years but here's the result. More pics of the build here http://picasaweb.google.com/tylerdurden26/CometPics#

Yikes a comet in a Chevelle thread, shudder.

Springer, between your cars, bikes and chicks, you must have a hell of a good time.

Both are cool cars, for very different reasons...

My 69 Mustang is just a shell at this point. I need to stop brewing for a while and start back up with the welding. I'm a couple of years away from painting (unless I get off my butt too).
