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!
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.
