Re: New member...

Welcome, Julian.
Correct year and a good starting point for the project of rejuvenating it.

I would say, since the front end is level, it has a small block engine.
A 10-bolt rear axle, maybe, but rear leaf springs - not bad.
If you want to know what the actual engine is, or started out to be from the General, give us a picture of the engine code on the front of the engine passenger side just in front of the cylinder head - if a V8. Six cylinder engine are passenger side right behind the water pump on a pad.

Advice: when starting your project, take plenty of pictures before for reference later and start a logbook recording any changes you make, any parts you buy, and buy a AIM - Assembly Instruction Manual. Or download one for guidance.

Can't warn you about being nabbed for pictures as you already been gigged.

Re: New member...

Quite the change of events here.
Brake light power circuit, this may help.
Ensure good grounds on the bezels to tail panel and socket into bezels.

Re: New member...

How big was the shoehorn?
Are there access holes in the fenderwell (inner fender) for changing pass side spark plugs?
