New Member From Central WI

Hi all,

First, thanks for adding me to the forum.

I just purchased a '66 Chevelle project out of a barn a few weeks back and am starting the tear-down. I always wanted a '66, but never really came across one. I purchased the car from an estate sale that I went to up in northern MN. I actually went to look at a '56 Post that I wanted to build as a nostalgia racer for some races we have up here a couple times a year, in addition to being a stout street car.

The '56 ended up being way worse than what I expected, and asked if he had any other cars he was selling, and he took me to another property where he had a running '66 Chevelle originally from SC. We went and looked and loaded it up. Price was right, it runs and drives with rebuilt suspension, new brakes, and a disk brake conversion, body is straight.

Even though it is a 300 deluxe, it should be a good basis for a street/strip build, and above all, fun.

Looking forward to picking your brains on issues and getting to know everyone.

Tom

Welcome Tom, to Team Chevelle.....

Sounds like a nice project! Proves it pays to ask about other cars if you can't get the one you went after. Where in MN is this estate sale? (I'm from MN).

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

The seller was north of Duluth about 20 miles. Bought from the owners wife and son in law. Very nice people. Had mostly Tri-Five Chevys, which I was after.

Welcome to the Team. Nothing wrong with having a 66 post. I have one also. Good luck and enjoy it.
