anatomy of a basket case
« on: January 02, 2012, 08:33:56 PM »
In a post before I was asked about pictures and as I dig up stuff I will post some. My car has sat where it is since 1984. It is apart and has been a home for cats, mice and cardboard boxes of whatever. I was rooting through stuff today and thought about it and snapped some.
body tags shown here

another rear shot. This part has caused no end of grief with the folks who have visited the car and said that it cannot be correct for the car due to the lack of either style traction bar

this piece causes grief too. I have been told there should be a "350" numeral on the horn button. There never was. For that matter none of the SS emblems displayed "350" either.
this is the original blue wheel. I took it out of the car in the summer of 69.

this is the cars trans. no, its not original. maybe the carrier plate and/or the tailshaft might be but I really dont remember. We used to stamp them with our initials because stealing transmissions was almost as common as stealing wheels was. This case has the countershaft moved .010 deeper into the main shaft.

cylinder head. redone decades ago and sitting in the bag. Back in the early 70's I salvaged a yellow 67 SS 350 powerglide ragtop and these heads might have been off that car. I dont think they are off the basket case.

not sure which engine this manifold is off either. The powerglide car had the most unbelievable looking vacuum fitting in it. I may find that yet when I dig deeper into this thing.
