    Owned a couple before when I was younger , 1976 with a 351 cleveland , and totaled right before paint, few years ago i had a 1965 with a 289 which was my dads, he was the second owner , so i guess i was the third , had to sell for family emergencies, and once again i just bought a 65 project with damn near everything there , bumpers , interior, spare misc. parts. Im really looking forward to putting her together and get on the streets. Later on i do plan on a small block v8 swap. I hope to be able to get suggestions to any problems i run into with the build

    thanks man i appreciate it, car looks great man! i know i need to do a front end swap as well as transmission and rear end so for now im keeping an eye out for those parts, right now im lookin for the right clips for door panels and nuts and bolts for all the interior and bumpers.
    i kinda want to change the column shift to a floor shift , if you have any suggestions for that, ive been lookin at the hurst indy universal floor shifter

    I like/have a Lokar shifter...the people there are very helpful (at least that has been my experience) in helping you get things right/sorted out which I'm in the process of doing...

    I put in the Hurst floor shifter and I really like it. I "sawed off" the nub on the column and filled with bondo and painted and you can't tell it was even there. Besides the shifter, I pretty much got everything from Dearborn.

    Well, growing up there in the 50's and 60's certainly was different than today...but yes, SC has become a cesspool :(
