      Based on our fiasco of a 65 valiant, I'd get ...

      Trans crossmember
      Driver side exhaust to block brace (little tube with squished ends)
      All the little odd nuts of the firewall
      Gas pedal assembly
      Kickdown linkage
      MC pushrod and not/bolt.
      Any other "special" nuts/bolts you can find.

            well, upon arrival found that the car (a 65 Dsrt 270 hardtop V8) had been moved and all the 270 trim had been removed, no throttle bracket, the gas pedal had veen ripped from the floor (nothing left of the part that bolts to the floor). It looked like the manifold to transmission braces were either MIA (Or had been removed). Could not check on the transmission crossmember or V8 centerlink as the car was now sitting on the ground, kickdown parts at the engine was gone - basically soneone who knew what they were looking for beat me to it. We are going back another day to get the owner (who wasn’t there) to move it and get the front end up in the air for us.

            I didn’t think about them. The valve covers looked like they’d been on for quite awhile, so maybe the adjustable rockers are still there. If so they’re now in my list

              Grab the speedo cable too. One never knows when you want to put a 66 904 into it. Iirc the speedo cables for this combo is a 2 year dealio. Not sure......

                Before we go back We’ll make sure he can get the front up high enough to get the crossmember, centerlink snd speedo cable out of the transmission (which BTW is for a 65). The rockers and pushrods will be easy to get to
