No progress to report, still gathering parts though. I have a 12 bolt that needs to be built, already have the new Moser axles. Need to order the Eaton posi and decide what gears to use.
Monday I went to look at a 71 El Camino. No title and really rusty, but I was only interested in the frame.
Weird car, manual drum brakes, manual steering, 3 on the tree, 10 bolt, rubber floor mat, standard wipers, but has AC, dual speakers in dash so could have been an FM stereo radio, a vinyl top and code 43 Lime Green Metallic paint
The brake and clutch pedals are still in the car...this really has me leaning towards a manual transmission even though a 700R4 has already been purchased.
It is parked next to the wagon so it could bond with the new organ donor
Plans are to get the frame from the El Camino in the shop to be cleaned and painted. From there the suspension will be rebuilt and updated, the 12 bolt installed, the 700R4 and what ever engine I can come up with (not sure the LT1 is going to be used.) Then the wagon body can be installed on the frame.
