Been a member for a couple of months now and have been trying to upload some photos of my 65. The car was a nice 10 footer when I got it. I drove it for a summer and am in the process of a frame off restoration. The car has a numbers matching 396 with factory ac, power steering and power brakes.
Thanks Dave, I love this car man.. I can remember being 7 years old (1977) and walking in to my father's body shop and seeing one of these cars for the first time - I was hooked and knew I had to have one one day. When the lights flipped on in the shop and I saw the six tail lights I thought it was one of the best looking "big" cars that I had ever seen. In the middle of a frame off restoration right now and can't wait to get it back on the road.
Man, the car looked great like it was!! Cant wait to see pics of the finished restoration!!
Thanks, it was a nice 10 footer. The paint was cracking here and there and the chrome was looking faded. The interior was completely destroyed from the Arizona sun. Waiting on the machine shop to finish the motor so I can set it back in the frame, then the body goes on. Can't wait to drive it again!
Thanks, I appreciate it. Love the yellow and light tan on these cars. Has that "dated" look that I think a lot of people get away from. I'm doing it completely in the original colors down to the tan and gold seats. Coming along pretty good, just a lot more involved than I thought it would be.
Thanks for posting the pictures Fran.
I don't know what it is about them but I Like, Like, Like it!!! The classic 65 lines, the great stance and old school big sidewalls, the old color.and like Dave said - Good photography too! Your wheel/tire combo is very very close to what I put on my gold 66.
