Hello, this is my 65. I have owned it for 22+ years but it sat parked for 13 years. I am one year into my resto-mod and I apologize for not posting a build thread sooner. Forgive me but I originally got the vibe that some of you guys (purists) may not like what I was doing (not staying 100% original) to such a beautiful car. Thanks to a few members who advised me otherwise and with the inspiration of the builds I have followed this year (Rsmalling, Rob J & Alini to name a few thank you for posting) here it goes I really like this forum...I've been lurking and found lots of help already...I see some guys post their step by step build on multiple forums at once (that seems like a ton of work but prob multiplies the info gathering). I will update with pics and write ups... I hope you guys enjoy and thank you in advance before the start...this is how it sat for 13 years without the engine in it. Note the nose high stance. I am trying to catch the interest of my 11 y/o son but video games are all kids care about today. Cool Hide-a-key find in the inner-fender/fender. My original plan was to rebuild the engine myself...got cold feet and sent it out instead. So I thought I would use the machine shop build time to clean up the engine compartment (fire wall, cross member, inner fenders, core support and tops of suspension components and frame for paint...) "can of worms" effect set in quickly. More to come...
