Thank you 69Z28-RS
« on: March 11, 2013, 06:44:15 PM »
The link you suggested helped with the downloads. Much appreciated ! Here are a few pics and a brief backround. Car came stripe delete ( aka plain Jane ! ) also console delete.#1 owner ordered tach ,headers ,fold down back seat ,4:10 gears , ( shoulder belts ? didn't know they were an option ) Added 67 hide aways and installed headers ,sold soon to #2 owner who had their camaro stole at the drags. Added cowl hood ,4:88's ,had car striped . ( I'm telling off the top of my head but 99% sure these are the facts ,easy enough for me to verify with them) all done prior to 1970. Dad bought in 76 with 28K on the odometer. 1989, acquired from my dad.1990 I put a 400 in it to do some dragracing (save the 302 ).That went to a street Anglia dad was building. 1991 M21 had seen enough abuse also inconsistent for bracket racing ,installed a full manual 350 and tied the frames.  Flash forward 2005, decided to go full race with the Anglia ,400 got callies crank ,Oliver rods ,JE pistons full roller ,dart heads and intake ... Larry Sikora chassis ,hoot to drive ( check youtube 48 Gasser's, that's were I also found Jerry M in Old Reliable which inspired me to get cranking with the build) BTY the 302 was freshened in 1990 ,tallied about 500 miles, and is sitting on the stand. M21 was gone through and detailed this last summer. Shy of resprayed quarters ,that's the original paint on it . 36 k miles (I was wrong in earlier posts) What it lost over the years : shocks ,master cylinder ,air pump ,fuel pump ,coil ,plugs and wires ,radio. However they had been long gone by 1976. Still have the tires worn , however spare never touched pavement also complete exhaust with hangers. It is getting a frame off. Just what I want to do ,plus my body man (also an old friend, very well known in area for his work) is shooting pics of all strip down ,prep and paint of the sheetmetal. He won and I removed the undercoating. Planning to have on the road next summer . As a write Jerry M has the distributor and brake booster for restoration with other parts to follow. A shout out to CHP , he really is helpful and a wealth of knowledge. I thought I knew these Z's but man can he fill in the blanks.
