So, the wagon runs and drives, It's far from nice but I really wanted to work on something that I think my wife will enjoy. So I got this red hardtop with a (yuck) automatic transmission. It's really similar to a car my Gramma drove back when they were new. Hers was aqua but equipped almost the same. 327, glide, white buckets/console and a black vinyl top. I'm not sure if it'll go back with the white interior or not.
A nom fully balanced 327 will be going in, it's all built and ready to go. Performer RPM AirGap, Edelbrock carb, 2.02 heads, and bumpstick of unknown origin. I've got a powerglide and a 700r4, it'll just depend on cash on hand as to whether the od goes in straight away or if I will have to drive with the 2 speed for a bit. (but it will go in at some point)
The chassis has been sandblasted and powder coated now and the bodywork is beginning. Grind the paint, bondo off, weld up the very slight rust spots.

The pics- it's the red car (blue and white are parts cars I got with it) the pic from yesterday at the bodyshop (no paint or front clip) and a shiny pic thats what I hope it will look like.

Well, it's got the big ol' lump in place. Right after this photo, the headers went on and I felt the need to arc the starter and listen to the sweet music of an uncorked big block- just for a few seconds (radiator wasn't in place yet)

Fresh coat of paint on the big block (electric aqua) and the t-10 all set ready to set into the newly painted bay of the 64 chevelle wagon. Rebuild on a 350 was nearly complete, but a good deal on the big block means that I have a spare small block for the next project I guess...
May not be the prettiest, fastest, etc. but with limited funds should be good for lots of fun. About one mile from my house is the famous Renegade Raceway (!) so once she's rollin, I'll let you know what it can do in the quarter. Mostly stock 454, with full length headers for now. Probably a 268 degree/510 lift cam, aluminum dual plane intake and street hp carb after the summer ends. That's the current thought, but they do change- sometimes quickly.
