Restoration / Re: It's Coming...

Thanks Chick.  It wont hold a candle to your butternut but it'll be the best I can do.  I plan on doing EVERYTHING myself (minus engine machining work).  It'll probably take 20 years but I'm ok with that as this car is something special to me and my father.

Is anyone near or in Suffolk, VA? I need someone to meet a craigslister and pay them and then ship the part to me. If you are willing to help I will compensate your time. Thanks

Which car Austin?  The car isn't gonna be a full out race car but it will be inspired by the drag racing of the day.  If I took everything that was said to me seriously I would never post on these forums.  I'm not mad or upset by any means but I'm also not afraid to talk shit back or speak my mind among friends.  People I don't know I usually just smile and listen.  ;D

This one won't be built to be a driver..  It'll be a racer. ;)

Probably gonna do a 331 or an old school 301.  I might change my mind but for now that's the plan.  Light weight bits and pieces..  Maybe some trickery here and there..  As for the rest of the drivetrain.  Sticking with a Muncie.  3 pedals 4 LIFE!! and a 4.88 or 5.13 spooled 12 bolt.

  Ill re-tell the story on the car at a later date.  Have to keep everyone in suspense..

Darrell, was the Rally Sport option added or is it original?


Added and will NOT be put back that way when I am done.

Mello wins.   :P

301..?...  Now is that enough cubes for a big block guy..?.?  Btw displacement is subject to change also.   ;D

Cat has all four, just the pic.
Purpose built always has fun as the intent. They tend to look best nose up off the line, front wheels hanging...jmo.


I wont give away all my secrets but the displacement ends with a 1....

Some know and others probably don't care but I sold the blue 67 last week and its gone to its new home.  I have a few things to figure out and to finish up but yes the Matador Red 68 LOS Z will be my next project.  I am going at this project differently than most.  This will be a purpose built build and I am going to enjoy it along the way.

More pics will follow in the next few months once I pull it out of storage and bring it over to the house.

Please pm or email me photos along with the info on the car as if it is a genuine L78 I would like to add it to my database.   Welcome to the site too..


Replace "at" with @

The small c is not the correct designation for the M22 in this case.  There are still a couple L78 cars floating around..  As to whether or not to restore is dependent on the current condition.  Since you bought it as an investment that will weigh in on the decision as to the amount you are willing to spend.  4575 total to be exact on the number of L78's built.
