Well here's a few picks ... everyone likes pic's!

This is what we have to start with,



Here is how the engines is going,



a few numbers,







Trans cleaning up well, light cleaner and elbow grease, not sure if it has ever been out all the bolts look untouched







Anyone ever see these three lines on the side of a trans case before?



Trying a little anti-rust solution, I'll let you know how it turns out,





ok over the Hill and through the woods for Thanksgiving, YOU ALL have a nice Thanksgiving...Be safe!

ok thanks for all the comments and reply's....my plan right now is to detail the interior and engine bay. I would absolutely love to keep her a survivor but the back wheel wells would be a problem (see pics).

They need to be totally cut out and replaced...If someone could give me some insight to ...if I do that can I match the paint ...aged survivor look...or have to re-paint the whole body. I would love to redo the wheels and buff and clean the rest and clear coat...I'd be good for another 20 yrs and in the end I am just preserving for the next owner anyways! In the meantime scrubbing cleaning..ordered windshield and engine bay wiring harness...pull front fenders, pull cracked windshield, grind and repaint...pic's to follow. The PO drove it year round so obviously winter salt rot...actually the inner wheel wells are in pretty good shape. Some kind of weather proof tar on inside.
Thanks again for comments...

I thought is was from the glass...the car was stored in an unheated garage, hot in the summer, cold in the winter...If I keep her as a survivor what do I do about the back wheel wells?
Here's a few photo bucket pic's. Thanks for the tip on photo bucket works a lot better.

Her's a few pic's of the paint wiped down...Removed the seats little to no rust on floor boards... pic's coming soon.

Update: won't let me post pic's bigger then 400KB...more pic's after I get that sorted out.

Ordered a front end bushing kit and under the hood wiring harness today.

Started cleaning her up just to take inventory. The engine was pulled out in 1977 rebuilt and never put back in. All the parts where in a box or the trunk. Front glass cracked, frame in really nice shape a little surface rust and oil.Interior in really nice shape minus the dash pad that is not cracked but it seems over the years some kind of sticky goo dripped out of the cracked windshield and caused small bubbles all over. I'd love to keep as much of the original paint as possible the back wheel wells are the worst case scenario. If I cut it all out and tack in new sheet metal and repaint. Wouldn't it be hard then to keep the original patina look?

Hello all...new to the site picked up a little gem to keep me busy over the winter months...well maybe a few Years but start over the winter. Local car, original owner,pop card included. Actually rode in this car in 1969, Sat in a garage since 1977 when I pulled her out. Great site and lots of knowledgeable folks hope to have a few questions in the future. First question is the back dash really card board and although solid, discolored and stained...refinish or replace?
Thanks,
