That's good news, Will. I have these saved for you when you wrap up this project.
That's an excellent workspace... I'm feeling a little "garage envy" starting already.Virgil spotted in place for disassembly. View attachment 137314 View attachment 137315
My previous '61 was a 4bll carburator and on a mystery cruise which was over 200 miles I got 23mpg on my poly 318 and I filled the tank up with the 93 octane. Which I plan to run in my current '61 . The carb was an edelbrock.
Will you forgot to clean the tires
The fellow who did the previous body & paint riveted and bondo'ed the lower front fenders to the rocker panels.
Where are you doing this, Will?
Do not feel bad who ever did mine last did not do the restoration right . I will give you an example metal was welded over rusted metal. on my passenger rear fender panel. My dad cut out the rusted metal I applied por 15 and he welded on the new metal and did the grinding and applying the bondo I did the sandingI wish I could have got to this car before the fellow who did the "restoration". The car is "at least" complete and intact but his procedures leave a lot to be desired. Need a bolt or screw...... just reach in the bucket. Double sided tape on some moldings that would likely support the weight of the car. It's gonna be a lot more fun assembling then the disassembly.
That car is gonna glow with that color combo!
+1 emerald with maybe a 1 drop of pearl in it or something to richen it up deeper
