Forgive me, if this is in the wrong area.
I recently purchased a 1967 convert. It was originally marina blue. The previous owner purchased it in 1977 and painted it red about 15yrs ago. He put on a high rise intake, fuellie heads and a few other things. I have driven it quite a bit, but have some plans.
Here is the link to the car that I purchased.
The car runs pretty decent for not being driven much in the last 15 yrs. It does shift into 2nd gear way too soon. So going to be addressing that among a few other issues.
- I just ordered/received new Hotchkis/Bilstein HPS shocks. Those should be going on tomorrow.
-Getting away from the 14" ugly wheels on there and upgrading to 17" Budniks.
-Baer Brakes (Got a great price)
-Steering wheel upgrade and reconnecting the horn.
-Exhaust? Needs to be a little louder.
-New seat covers, removing the upholstered cover.
-I will be getting it repainted to either Black/White or back to the original marina blue and white.
-Also looking at a new crate 383 in the future.
This is just listed in the order of need/want I suppose. I am not a mechanic, but can follow directions. Ha.
I appreciate any advice/direction. So far this forum has been great.
Just looking to make this a great, reliable driver, that turns some heads.
