Working on getting the 65 4dr wagon back on the road

It has sat now for almost 18 years or so - I have worked on things now the then but most not at all.

Engine is a four bolt main 350 truck block with 327 crank in it, turning a 700r4 tranny.

Should be fun.

Cool wagon, I'm jealous..

You barely have me beat on how long mine has sat. I'm almost back on the road, just replacing all the brake system at the moment. It was NASTY.

Re: Working on getting the 65 4dr wagon back on the road

Thanks!

I had it repainted about 14 years ago, a friend got laid off from Boeing and was a painter. So the paint is somewhat new and like I mentioned - from time to time I did show it some attention.

One of the things I have been doing is a totally new wiring harness American Auto wires unit.

So the dash is out and I am not going to put the original AM radio back in. So I cut out the mounts in the original warn dash and made an aluminum piece for mounting three gauges in it's place.

Almost have the dash in car wiring done enough to put the dash back in for good - hopefully?
