Ya'all ? Are you from the south? You know you're W30 cars, that's for sure!

Actually it is in a 1967 442 (not W-30) with a 12E build code ordered with the G88 Heavy Duty Performance Axel 3.90 and G80 Anti-Spin Rear Axel. It is as it came from the factory - not changed.

I am with you on the "Disprove" versus "Prove" position.

Last weekend I fished removing ball joints control arm bushings ect. now i'm waiting for all the parts to be returned from the sand blaster.I decided to do some work on the IP.How ever I have a couple of questions. I've attach two photos one of the is of them radio cut out. I'm not sure if this dash has been cut or is the fm radio bigger than an am? The hole looks big to me.
The other photo show a fuse holder with a small 2amp fuse. The temp and oil pressure gauge didn't work could this fuse solve that problem. The tach and fuel gauge and amp meter worked fine
As alway thanks to all for the help

Yes the dash looks like it is cut top and bottom a hair.....silver edge goes across bottom and top while yours looks to be missing. i am not familiar with the rally pac dash so i cant answer the fuse question....maybe the shop manual can and I only have a 66 edition.

Thanks for the kind words Richard.Sea five.Someone has cut that dash probably to accomodate a stereo.I can restore an IP for you I have quite a few cores .That particular area is extremely difficult if not impossible to fill.As for the Rallye Pac.I am currently doing 2 restorations for Tweed Vorhees and the one IP has a Rallye Pac.I can take pictures of the gauge pack and send them to you for wiring purposes.Give me a call if you want to talk about a restoration.

Cool this will help me decide on how to get the body off....I was thinking a few buddies and a case of beer but that could get dangerous

I attached some pics that might be helpful they show how I blocked the body. However there are a few things i would do differently.
1 4 good floor jacks. Not 1 good and 1 not so good like i had
2 A good friend that you can work well with. Not alone like I did
3 If you need hight use 4x4s on the floor to put the jacks on. Do pile 4x4's on the top of the jack the body becomes very unstable.
4 No beers until everything is stable.
Enjoy and good luck I'll be following your build

I'm still doing a lot of disassembly door glass, window regulators and a lot of little picky stuff.I forgot what a pain window regulators can be. But I did get the core support back from the body and it looks great IMO.It's nice to see parts ready for reassembly

Thanks thing are moving very well. Unfortunately Our weather is moving well also right into winter I hope that doesn't slow down progress I,m looking to rent a garage for another car I have, If not the chassis build waits for the spring.That means body work all winter.

The last couple of weekends of garage time has not been glamorous. I've been cleaning the underside of the body. A lot of build up in 44 years many hrs of degreasing cleaning and last but not least undercoating removal. I used a torch to get the 44 year old undercoating soft then scraped it of.Still collecting chassis parts. This week rear brake parts arrived with the exception of the front e brake cable.

So this is the only rust you have found? As clean as this car is, I am surprised you even found this.

This is the most rust I've found but not all of it. i also found a little under the rear wheel well moulding when I removed them. I also have not removed the front or rear glass yet so time will tell but I'm still very happy about the minimal of rust

Well haven't reported much just finished removing undercoating nothing glamorous about that but I'm glade it's behind me.I sent my frame out to have some welding done on the rear cross bar looks like someone put a hook on it and pulled i out a little, not a big deal. From there to the sandblaster and that start the chassis build.

323 gears are a good all around gear..... usually it was the most GM liked to put in there on AC cars.... For me I would need at least 355's... ya would want a little ballzy feeling being it is a 442!

Body work has begun. Thanks to a friend it was a very successful Saturday. The right rear quarter was the first to get a new life. Old rust was cut out and new metal fabricated and welded in place.The transition in just four hrs is amazing.
