I stripped the car myself, took about a week. Marielena, my Mexican born spouse, posed for the first foto. The restoration is taking place in her home town of La Paz, Baja California Sur (about 950 miles south of San Diego).
We rebuilt the motor already (about ten years ago). Its a 1980's 318 with the original 273 Commando AFB, intake (1966 version), chrome air cleaner, and ribbed valve covers. Stock exhaust manifolds and dual exhaust by TTI.
The transmission is a floor shift 904 (no work done on that yet). The rear end is a 8 3/4 with 489 case (no sure-grip) with 2.76 ring and pinion. Stock brakes with Mopar Rallye wheels. Options include power steering, power brakes, and A/C (parts missing). Original color is WW1 white with gold headliner and carpets. Seats and door panels are black. I assume the black upholstery and accents are not original (build sheet found under rear seat cushion belongs to another vehicle).
We will probably paint the vehicle the same 1965 white and same 1965 gold poly trim (inside). Plans are to add a factory style body stripe (gold).
Very cool! Look forward to following your build.
