Re: Bought myself a '63 1/2 with 427 4 speed!
Just a quick update on what I have done.
After last weekend's initial clean up and drool session, this weekend was time for me to crawl under the car and see what I would find.
Starting from the back, I was very impressed with the condition of the chassis and all components under there.
Working my way to the gearbox found some oil leakage, but I don't think it'd be too serious. Under the engine was absolutely spotless!
But it was under the radiator support panel which has me a little worried. The battery tray and the panel directly below are virtually non existent, so it looks like I will need to do a bit of work there.
I was very happy with the front suspension and steering. All seemed tight, and I don't think I'll have too many worries there.
Next weekend will be a bit of a clean up of the front, removing some old grease and grime, in preparation for a lowering job.
