Hi everyone! I have been reading this forum for a while to find all kinds of helpful advice. Finally decided to join and be a part of this wonderful community. I have a '65 4 door hardtop with the original 283 and powerglide. I am the second owner and have had the car for ten years.
Thanks guys! It's been a work in progress over the years. The 283ci has been bored over .030", crankshaft has been balanced, Melling MTC-1 camshaft has been added, along with an Edelbrock 500cfm carburetor, and Edelbrock Performer intake manifold. It has a dual 2" divorced exhaust with Magnaflows. I had it painted the original mist blue with ermine white top a couple years ago. The interior will be my next project.
Thanks! I didn't really have a choice on the number of doors, my father bought me the car for my 17th birthday. Back then I probably would of rather had less doors and a bigger motor. However now I enjoy having a cruiser bot a bruiser since it is my daily driver when the ground is free of snow. Also will be having my first kid next month so it will be a lot easier to get that car seat in and out with the extra pair of doors!
Like the doors, the color was a thing that grew on me as I got older. I really like the two tone on the the car, and helps keep it cool in the summer. So for all I have done to the interior is put it a new package tray and seat belts. I lucked out that the original owner had seat covers on, so the original seats were pretty good shape except from a few tears in the bottoms.
