A couple questions in my mind, but the first one, the front fenders, where they always rust out between the support and the skin, on the lower section, is there a way to permanently seal that so it doesnt happen again? Or just coat it with undercoating and hope for the best?  Seems a bad design, the way stuff can get in there and not get out (obviously as they commonly rust there)

It makes noise, on its own, wanted to see if it will run before ripping it out, sounds pretty good!

What is that squelling noise?  I wouldn't run it too long or too often without a radiator.  BTW; mine has the original 327 in it also.  Dressed up to look like a 302.  Lot of real 302 trim pieces.

the fan belt, running it a little bit without water wont hurt, dont worry, Im not going to take it on a cruise, haha..

 Just wanted to run it and do a compression check before ripping it out and apart. probably see what it has for pistons, change the cam, and turn the power up a little bit. nothing worse than a muscle car that cant spin the rear tires!

MooneyDriver - glad to see another LOS '67 coming back to life.  Mines an 11A.  Bolero Red w/Black interior (L30 motor w/M20 4 speed). Lots to do like yours. I'm sure we'll be comparing notes.
Q: I was looking at your vin tag and noticed what looks like 3 numbers stamped above the production number (106 or 186?) I don't recall seeing that before. Anyone?

  I know what you're saying, but most of our cars at this point in their lives lead pretty pamper lives, so you'll most likely never see the rust issue again in your lifetime.  You could always spray a little truck bed liner in there, would probably be better than under-coating.  Or, I have a spray bomb can of plastic coating, not sure where I got it, or for what.

  Mine was 210 hp. 2 bbl., it's now pushing 400 hp.  Has "Double-hump" 2.02 Heads,  Comp. cam (480 lift), a REAL Z ...610 intake, 10.3 comp.  Has a "built" TH 350 with a 2500 stall Converter, and 4:11  12 bolt Posi.   Git-R-Done.  The Heads and Forged Crank are '64 Vette pieces. Put in all ARP bolts, I think it will hold together.  I've "thrashed" some other 327's before in my lifetime that weren't put together near as well as this one.

67rs327,  that's an inter-plant production run #, was only used in LOS.

Wife and I were initially thinking of grey with black stripes, but being it was origional red, we found this one, and are thinking this looks pretty nice!
Personally, I like the red, but I tire of seeing non-Z cars with Z-stripes.
How about this, which is what it originally looked like?

Mike,
Interesting on the number. I know you have an 11a also. Does it have these other numbers? Mine does not.
Thanks-Chris

I hear you, seems everyone makes SS and RS's, I just like racing stripes and never had a car with them yet. And we chose the darker red, because were just not bright red fans.  If the car was something special other than a base car, Id probably be more of a stickler to going totally stock.

did a compression check, all holes are about 155psi, Ill try to remember to get the numbers off the engine and see what it came out of, supposedly Im getting the stock block too, one of these days.

See how much time I have last weekend, last night I spent a few hours trying to get the rest of the dash off the cowl top piece, they sure put alot of spot welds on there!  Hope to get half a day to work on it tomorrow as well.
