  1. Those dryer sheets don't work. The mice make nests out of them.
  2. I'll go out on a limb here and say yes, being the wsw is in the same line as the tires.

  4. I agree. It's too bad they don't realize it and part with the vehicles before they turn to dust.
  5. Ever wonder what the reason was for letting something like this sit? I would think most reasonable people would realize they aren't going to use it, restore it, or anything else, & want to get their money out of it. But that's too logical. Maybe that's why we're called old car nuts. Emphasize the nuts part.
  6. Not negativity. The guy asked for advice & unless you've been living in a cave on a remote Pacific island, you should know he will get wheelbarrows full. I see pros and cons, as well as sound advice being offered, especially from some who own or owned cars he is looking at. It's up to him to sift through it, sort it out, weigh ALL the advice given here & make his decision. It appears the biggest drawback to his daily driver plan is whether the car would be used on the freeway/highway on a daily basis. If yes, and he wants to commit suicide by freeway, then so be it. Otherwise, as
  7. John & Ed are right. A 20's or 30's car is not a good choice for a daily driver unless you're only going 5-10 miles & keep off the freeways & highways. If you moved up to late 40's or early 50's, I think you would find them more dependable, able to run at 55-60, and within your price range.

  8. For 90 grand would it be asking too much to pull it out of the garage/building & take some decent photos? NADA doesn't list an opera coupe. I don't think you will find an opera coupe listed in any price guide. What the hell is an opera coupe? Could you ONLY drive it to the opera? I suspect it's more a case of making something sound better; in this case a 4 passenger coupe becomes an opera coupe, Oh how elegant! Kinda like all Muncie 4 speeds are now called rockcrushers.
  9. That's what I had. Here's a list of tachs available in '66 Chevrolet full size. 6412548 -6000 rpm, 5k red line, used with 283/195hp, 283/220hp, 327/275hp, 396/325hp 6412571 -6000 rpm, 5k red line, used with 396/325hp equipped with RPO K66 Transistor Ignition 6412983 -7000 rpm, 5500 red line, used with 427/390hp 6412572 -7000 rpm, 6k red line, used with 427/425hp equipped with RPO K66 Transistor Ignition and also 427/390hp with RPO K66,1st design 6412984 -7000 rpm, 5500 red line, used with 427/390hp equipped with RPO K66 Transistor Ignition, 2nd design 6412549 -7000 rpm, 6k
  10. My '66 Biscayne L72 had the TI tach. Is that what you are referring to as the Delcotronic?
  11. Is that some or all of the engine sitting on the floor by the one on the right?
