It would have to be "Not enough Parking Spaces". Selling the Corvair allows one more to move from the outside to indoor storage.

If not mistaken Corvette used short pump thru 73 or 74 on BBC they had a 3/4 shaft much stronger than the 5/8 standard

John I have a flywheel an aluminum bell housing and possibly the brackets what do you need P/s and alt ,do you need A/C brackets,
I also have a couple steel bellhousings with the side mounts ,1 with 1 bolt amd 1 with 2 bolts if you decide not to remove your crossmembers,

I have a rebuilt Muncie 4 speed with a brand new shifter I bought years ago just begging to go in this car.

I also agree with you about the allen Grove brackets. I may have some friends who have some of that stuff still around. Time will tell. I may also be able to fabricate some of it.

One more parking space freed up.
I also sold a pair of '67-72 bedsides last week. I have a LOT of other parts to sell now from my 5 year accumulation for the '69 K1500 I sold a couple months ago. Gonna take a lot of digging and cleaning to get them all out in daylight again.

Remember the job you have today is not your job. It's their job. You're just using it for awhile.

Don't go nuts.

The 56 had globes in the background with a one piece spinner. Some of the counterfits did have a checker background. Most had a terrible shape.

The true Fiestas were 15 but some of the repops were 14. I will have 15 inch wheels, don't care about the cheap knock offs but really like the OEM's.

It is just good to have a plan and a sense of direction.

There are some 53-55 Olds Fiesta wheel covers on Ebay I am bidding on but doubt I will prevail. Fusic Automotive sells a correct reproduction of them but they are 550 a set which is a little rich for me but I do hope to come up with some before the car is built. I do like them a lot.....Of course that puts me in the whitewall tire issue next.
