wen I get the high stall converter a big smokey burn out will be had. the stock converter locks up @ 500 r.p.m. not to exciting. did pre top fitting today........you get wut you pay for, as in fitment sucks. I cheaped out on the top as this will be a fair weather car meaning I only need a top if I get caught out in the rain. needless to say gonna havta make it work. more to follow soon.

Rich you did an awesome job, she looks great. I know for me the fact that I built the whole car (like you) it just gives me an awesome feeling every time I get in the car. I hope you get the same feeling cause it never gets old. Enjoy her have fun and be safe.

it is such afeeling of joy........taking a bare shell, a shell a junkyard would not want and turn it into a thing of beauty with my own 2 crippled hands and body..............yeah it feels fuckin good, swearing out of joy you understand but now back to business. with the fitment of the top it brings stage 1 of this project to an end. I think I proved without a shadow of a doubt that you don't need a full on fab shop and with simple hand tools YOU can do this, build a nice and reliable car........but that was stg.1. whilst using my baby as I drive the back roads the wheels in my head are planning stage 2. new dashboard gauges, better brakes, high stall converter,bigger cam to match stall speed to name a few. in time the whole car will be refined. buckle up fellow darksiders..........its gonna be a ride. gonna work on my parts list more to come in the near future. I thank each of you who followed along, see you again soon.

Great to see your enthusiasm in the build! It looks really great and as you say, you did it all!
Cheers,
Bill

PS. I liked your color so much that I went out and bought my own yeller feller! It's the pale yellow (chartreuse) and the paint is in such good shape that there is no chance of a re-paint.

Hi Rich,
I got one that is a pale yellow (chartreuse)with just a touch of green. Only available in later years. I probably wouldn't have considered it if I hadn't seen how good yours looks in yellow. I've always been a CB guy. The black bumpers look really good next to the yellows. Got a really good deal on it as it was in pieces. The stock rebuilt engine runs great and has a better than stock cam in it. The way it runs reminds me of my old 65 from back in the day. No rust so no reason to put a V8 in it.

Cheers,
Bill
