Much like the rest of us, looks like you need a bit more space.

Good luck with the project.

Not to mention it has a rear spoiler too! 3 of the 4 original wire hub caps are in the trunk too.

I'm trying to find the breakdown of model production too, but still no luck. I'm also in the hunt for Shop Manuals, Wiring Diagrams, etc, etc, etc. :)

Thanks Layla!!:happyanim: We'll see if this one will be ready by next summer. It all depends how far I end up diving into the car. Not sure if I'm going to do a frame off yet or not. If I do, it won't be ready by then!!

Well I'm into the Rochester Quad rebuild so far. Parts are stuck in NJ as from the aftermath of the Hurricane I'm thinking!!:mad0260:

Does anyone from the Greath White North have any sources up here for parts? I know of Ultimate Performance, and a few others, but any suggestions are greatly appreciated!! I'll be looking for suspension, all exhaust, brakes (I'd like to upgrade to disc on the rear), and I'm sure others as I get further into the car. I'm just looking for sources in Canada if possible.


Thanks!!
John

Early Birds in Barrie Ontario is the place to go for parts in Canada.
Tell them the guy from Gilbert Guitars sent you.

I already asked......she won't help me with the car!!:sm0:

:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm: when just one won't do.

fshog 11-17-2012 05:33 PM

It runs!!! After ordring a carb kit from Quadrajet Parts in the U.S., and trying to figure out how to put it all back together (as usual, I tore everything apart 3 weeks ago while waiting for the kit:facepalm:) it started up right away! :happyanim:

When I bought it, the guy did start it, but ran extremely rough, and it only started once.....then we couldn't get it running again. Towed it onto a trailer and brought it home, with the family helping me unload and push it into the garage. (I have such a great family.....they only laughed at me for the first 5 minutes!! ;))

I have a little more comfort now knowing I didn't buy a complete piece of S*^T!!!

Runs a little to high on idle, but that will be an easy fix. The engine is burning a bit of oil, but that didn't surprise me....one more thing to source....just need to decide if I'm going to rebuild this one or chose more HP....decisions, decisions!!

Time to load it onto the hoist and start on the suspension, steering, and brakes, and exhaust (depending on if I keep the original 305 or not though).


Anyways, thought I'd throw an update out there!! I'm stoked!!:happyanim:

Meltdownaverted 11-17-2012 07:29 PM

I took my 305 and put it in the corner of the garage......I'll keep it in case I ever want to put it bake to stock. Got a bit more HP and a new carb dropping in as well :)

Meltdownaverted 11-17-2012 07:29 PM

Have Fun!!!!!
