Engine rebuilt
With exhaust fitted
The engine is a rebuilt 326 V8, the headers are Doug’s Headers (Pertronix), and the exhaust system is MagnaFlow: dual pipes to a X-pipe then into dual mufflers. Sounds pretty good… Hear for yourself!

Did your bird have any interior when you bought it?

It did. The carpet was disgusting and worn, the headliner ripped and the vinyl coverings on the seats had gone all brittle and cracked.

It was the Deluxe Parchment option… carpet, seats and headliner all parchment coloured. Not my favourite, I’ll be having everything black when it’s that time. I’m considering replacing the seats for ones with head rests (don’t know about compatibility with later year seat bolts), and also considering a custom leather job for the seats and a few other parts, depends on money though…

Hi, it has been a while since we sold you the firbird, haven’t seen any updates in a while, hows it coming along? Very anxious to see how it all turns out!

Hey. Hows you and yours? Progress is a bit slow lately, been busy at work and will be back to uni again soon, so it’ll be back on hold for a little while. But, it is back on 4 wheels now, in primer, and am currently working on the engine. Hope to have it turning over soon, then once that’s done I’ll bolt together the front clip and start the body filler work. Still refreshing to see it back on the floor in one piece (almost) after being on the rotisserie for so long!

I love your site. I have a 67 that I did from the ground up about 25 years ago. It’s been sitting outside for the last 18 years and needs more work now than it did the first time. I am getting ready to begin round 2 in 2010. I am interested in setting up a site like this, was it alot of work to set up?

Rich,

I asked Lloyd about the website previously, so I figured I’d chime in. Lloyd recommended I check out WordPress. WordPress.COM is free and easy, but the website is integrated with their domain (domain.wordpress.com) and you are limited to templates that don’t allow customization. WordPress.ORG allows you to customize templates, but you pay for a domain and hosting.

I downloaded the WordPress.COM files and it was pretty easy. However, I purchased a domain and hosting services from Big Daddy awhile later. My Brother is taking classes for web design, so we are going to take a crack at a custom page.

John
