Well here goes ready of not. some of you might remember my 61 Impala restomod. I am now starting to do the same to a 61 Country Squire. I was going to keep the original 390ci and just add a overdrive auto tranny. However, a funny thing happened on a road tour. My torque converter killed the thrust bearing in the engine and also made the tranny pump to quit working. (more on that later) I am installing a 2014 Coyote engine and a 6r80 tranny and anew Fatman front clip, with power rack & pinion, tubular a-arms, and coilovers. Thought I would start with some pictures. Interior first. More pictures to come.
Ok, getting everything ready for the Coyote install. Smoothing the firewall. Welding in the new Fatman front clip and goodies. New wiring harness, a new Dakota digital instruments cluster, and installed the air conditioning. Progress!
