a 69 fastback, a sawzall and a case (or 2) of beer

Recommended Posts


It's been a few months since I picked up the car and the progress has been steady.  got it up off flats, and got the engine turning over.  rebuilt the 2100 and got it fired up and it stayed on. Engine sounds ok.  

pulled the interior and found a few fossilized rodents, their nests and some speed holes in the floor pan.  basically the whole pan has to be replaced, along with the torque boxes, toe boards, rockers, front apron/battery area and some pieces of the rear wheelhouses.  otherwise it's great.  

got the harness pulled and the drivetrain is next.  sending the motor to the machine shop for a rebuild and the 3 speed and the 8" rear end to the axle/gear shop for a rebuild  while I burn up some sawzall blades and a roll of welding wire.  

hopefully this goes half as well as I have envisioned.  will post pics either way.
