'65 Cutlass Convertible

Hi folks and Happy Holidays!! I have been working my Olds project for >15 years, which is my father's '65 Cutlass Convertible (non-442) that has been in the family for >50 years. I have reached a point of my biggest obstacle, the bodywork, and my experience, appropriate tools, equipment and once again time/$$ are my shortfalls. To help speed up the project, I am in the process of seeking a better donor car and even assistance from a reputable bodywork craftsman in the Northeastern Indiana to help make my dream a reality for my parents. If anyone out there has any leads where I can find one or both it would be greatly appreciated. See attached story for more details and the progress I have made to date.... Thanks Jeff

Chassis built and ready for body!

Here's my engine dyno results. Lower than I was anticipating, after the dyno I found a bad intake lifter on #2 (broken spring) and the RPC timing tape was not correctly marked at 90, 180 and 270, thus throwing off the timing when I adjusted the valves.
