Alright I'll start this with some background , I've grew up around cars , out of the 12 we own, 1 always stood out . My dads 67 rally sport .
currently has a 406 sbc , but it holds some of my earliest memories . Something always drew me to it but I rarely even saw it . Maybe it was the illusive factor of it up on the lift under a car cover . Fast forward a couple years , till I was 8 standing there at my dads friends house who builds race cars, my dads asks me if I'm really sure that I want a 69 I said yeah I want one like yours (I was a dumb 8 year old and thought the 67 was a 69) then he said mines a 67. Just happened that that guy had a 68 .
Small block car but no motor. Some rust spots but not bad . Traded the guy a motor and we were on our way. For a very long time it sat in the corner of the garage , collecting dust . Until these past few years . Full frame off , body sand blasted and primed and I started working on it . Also to mention it had quarter panels over top of quarter panels . Got 2 new full quarters and a new driver side floor pan .
subframe blasted and powder coated .
rebuilt the front end . Rebuilt the gauges
cleaned up the tail lights and marker lights
cleaned up the steering wheel , not sure if it's what I'm gonna use or not
then it came time to bring it home because they finished building the garage
then I started doing random stuff on it
in between got the rear axle figured out and brakes all done . motor sat in there now
got the windows in
kinda hard to tell but it was a factory ac car so in went the tinted glass . Ok now we're finally caught up to current day , I got the motor and trans bolted up after 2 sets of frame mounts and 2 sets of motor mounts because the one original engine mount was jacked but it's in
. Next step is getting headers in (not sure if they are gonna work super big hooker super comps)
