I read through a few threads and this seems like a good forum with lots of knowledgable people.
Recently purchased a 67. She is a black plate CA car with little rust. I'll put some pictures up soon. Originally a plain jane 6cyl, floor shift. 350 GM crate with muncie 4-speed was installed in 2002, seems to run real strong.
I am excited to work on her. I plan to do all the mechanical and replace the interior in the garage and keep her driveable. When that is finished she'll go in for some fresh paint (maybe an SS clone ???) and minor body work at a shop. I am open to suggestions for a good classic car body shop in the San Diego area (north county would be best).
OK, here is the list of repairs I have planned:
-front disk brake with power booster (now has drums, no booster)
-subframe bushing replacment
-rear suspension update (bad wheel hop) and bushing replacement
-add heater core (now has nothing)
-interior: carpets, seat covers (front only), door skins, rear deck
-front suspension update (need to dig around a bit and see what it needs)
If anyone can point me to relevant threads for any of the above that would be great. I am particularly interested in the subframe bushing replacement. I have a factory assembly book and a chiltons repair guide and can't find bolt torques specs, a procedure or even a drawing.
