65 Bel Air 4dr
I just started what is my first serious attempt at a resto. I picked up my Bel Air for $450 from a lady who was going to scrap it. It had been driven last in '86 and only has 30k original miles on it.
Unfortunately for me, a family of rats had been living in the car for quite a while, so all the wiring is torn to pieces and I had to clean what seems like a metric ton of poo out of the car. The engine seems to be in good shape; I have already torn it down, cleaned it, and replaced all the gaskets. I'm in the process of cleaning the engine bay before I drop the original 283 motor back in, but have run in to some problems getting the fenders off so I can get a good clean and paint.
I've got quite the project in front of me - the interior was completely shot (all but the dash). I finally found a place that does door panels, but they are not cheap. I need to weld new floor pans in, recarpet, and I need to find new seats.
Sorry for the long-winded post -
