Julian, Can you get me pics of the interior? I'm particularly interested in the front seat & the door panels.

Mike, I have a rear bumper core that will need minor straightening and a rechrome. e-mail me at gfmorlock@hotmail.com for info/pics.

The Delmont does not have disc brakes.. HOWEVER.. I DO have a 69 Delta that has a complete disc brake set up from the porporting valve and brake booster down to the spindles and rotors. The rotors does not appear to have been turned. plenty of "meat" on these.. thanks Julian

My Delmont sits pretty low and it only has 65,000 miles with the 350. If I replace with stock springs and shocks will this raise it enough? Also, tailights don't work. Everytime i replace the fuse it blows. Any Help?

They'll help, but setting low was part of the package back then. You also need a big 14" tire (225/75R14) which only a few tire companies make now. Mastercraft and Hercules come to mind.

My guess is you have a bad taillight socket that's grounding out and blowing the fuse. Those sockets were/are notorious for doing hateful crap like that. Any auto parts store should have them or be able to get them, but look for American-made ones if you can find them. Most new production is made in China and it shows.

Thanks Rocketraider. I will definitely try replacing the sockets.

As far as the sitting low, the car currently has 15 in 225/75/15 which really make it look low. I'm not into the bagged or lowered look, I like the nice level ride with some spoke wheels. Do you know of other vehicle apps that I can buy the springs? Would the Buick Riv or Olds Delta of the same year work? Thanks again.
