Project Greenbrier

This is going to be a slow build...so I hope everyone will bear with me...

1972 Greenbrier Wagon I have owned for about 10 years...

Plans include...6.0L LQ4...5 or 6 speed manual.

Should have it in the shop next week and start on the fuel system.

Found some pretty good tech on here about in tank pumps...would like to find some more. (Pointing me toward good threads is always appreciated.)

(I'm not new to Chevelles, just wagons. I have a 1970 SS396 Cowl Induction, 4-speed. 1967 SS396 4-speed. 1971 SS350 bench seat 4-speed. And a couple others lying around I forget about...)

Good luck Mike. Sounds like it will be a nice build and you've got great experience to pull from.

Thanks...actually, your build helped inspire me to pull mine out of the weeds. (I've lurked for some time now.)

Re: Project Greenbrier

LOL. Cool. Too bad we're not closer, I could pass on a bunch of parts to the project! It does look like a good car. I don't see any rust down low in the usual spots. Is it pretty solid?

Re: Project Greenbrier

I'm gonna' throw these pics up just so you guys don't think I'm pullin' anybodys leg...


Yes, these are pretty rough...but they are all original SS cars. No clones.






EDIT: I know this is not a Chevelle...but one of my favorites...

Re: Project Greenbrier

Mike - great collection. I love the '67. Definitely on my list to own. Thanks for adding the GTO. Great car.

Nice collection too Jerry. Love the van. I had a '65 Econoline back in the day. It was never as nice as your - but had a heck of a good time in it in the late '70s.

Re: Project Greenbrier

Thought I'd post some fuel tank pics...



Access panel, (this is behind left rear tire).


This is a series of photos of the tank removal...I searched, but I couldn't find anything on the subject of wagon tank removal.

Re: Project Greenbrier

Thanks Mike. Chevygod actually needs these views for the project he's working on. Your timing is great. He wanted to see clearance views of a mounted tank and the frame.

I should have it on the hoist for at least a couple more days...I can shove that tank back up and take any other angles he needs.

Just let me know.

Re: Project Greenbrier

Hi Mike,

Thank you for the pics. If you have any showing what the clearance is between the steel line coming out of the frame pointing towards the tank, like your fourth pic of the tank (looking almost straight back with the tank still installed), I would appreciate it.

I am trying to finish off my line and would like to have them curve up after coming thru the frame if I have access to replace the lines after frame-body-tank assembly.

Cool project, more wagon rebuilds happening now than one would believe!

Thank you for your help,
Tom

My steel lines end inside the frame...I think this is how it came from the factory. (The tank in this car appears to have never been out.)

There appears to be plenty of clearance for a 90* bend between the tank and frame...
