    Way-ta-go, Clay! A house with a barn has always been my dream property. Mighty fine.

    OK Rip this pic's for you. The goats in the earlier pic are on our property, the red barn is not.

    Clay you mentioned about putzing with your new 440 hood ornament. is this an aftermarket? i know someone in desperate need of one. they are extremely rare as they were a one year only ornament as i am sure you are aware of. any pics of it? thanks Paul

    Paul the first two pics are the original (in pretty rough shape) and the last pic is an after market 67 GTX hood ornament which I am thinking of going with. I've found lots of 383 inserts for the original but have had no luck locating a 440 insert so far....

    Not trying to hijack my own thread, but It looks like I may have a second restoration project in my future......

    So I've looked around for a good bit and I'm not having much luck on locating gaskets for the tail lights on the 66 SF.
    Anyone have a source? Every time it rains the turn down portion of my trunk lid fills up with water and I'm sure the culprit is my tail lights.

    If DMT doesn't make them, you'll have to make your own. I'm guessing they are sealed with the white open-cell foam gaskets? If so, you can probably get the correct material from McMaster-Carr.

    OK another update.
    Since we are now in the process of transferring the hoard to the farm from the small house, I've made the decision to try and minimize moving the car around without power. This weekend I'll be moving the car, the nearly complete engine, and the tranny to a local Mopar performance shop to have the following done:
    Finish off the motor bolt-ons
    Rebuild the tranny
    Break in the motor on the run cart
    Install the motor and tranny

    This way the car will have power and moving it around won't be such a pain. Plus by then, I'll have the new to me garage ready to bring her home with a quick stop along the way for new exhaust.
    Still waiting for the remainder of the trim to arrive from the polisher.

    And we just bought a brand new chicken coop......

    Rough morning trying to load this nearly complete engine in the trailer by myself. But with a little help from the ole cable come along I was able to make it happen.

    Dropped it off and the pouring rain started 10 minutes later-Whew......
