1967 Malibu

Been working on my car for about three years. New roof skin, floor pans, deck filler and a rear quarter panel.

Welcome.

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

Just adding a picture or two. I have been working on my car for about 3 years. Most recently I did the back half then moved to Virginia.

When I moved from San Diego to Norfolk VA I put the body fenders and grill 90% together. And now it all back in pieces so I finish the back half and drive train.

The body is actually pretty light with nothing in it.

Are you tubbing it for a pro street or just trying to get more rubber under the rear?

Re: 1967 Malibu

I will probably end up with a cage in it but for now I am just slowly making progress. I would like to take my whole family for drives but i am sure they will loose interest and it will just be me and my son.

Re: 1967 Malibu

Time to start mocking up some stuff.

Had a set of Ebay stainless steel headers but they did not fit. The driver side had a tube that hit the cross member which held the engine back about 2 inches from the motor mount.

What headers do you have on your 66 - 67 with a big block?

Narrowed my first rear end last night. Took 6 inches off each end. It is now 43.5 inches flange to flang and 48.24 drum to drum.

Looking to find out what the issue is with my engine placement. I have a gen IV 454. I had to get new engine stands to install on my crossmember. I researched and supposedly got the correct parts for a big block. I have some pictures to show my issue. Basiclly the oil pan hits the crossmember. I have a restoparts c980151 oil pan. The end of my transmission needs to drop about for inches. Something just isn't right. Any ideas or thoughts would help.
