Finally might be happy with my 67 Beaumont...

Ive had this car for over ten years now and pretty well repaired or replaced just about everything in the car.
When I bought it I had little mechanical knowledge and made the mistake of letting local hot rod guys/ speed shop owners and friends steer me all over and i ended up buying a lot of parts that I couldnt use, didnt fit, didnt work out or were just a plain ol' bad idea.
Then I found this web site and have been doing pretty good ever since.
Right now im about 2-3 weeks from it being on the street for the first time in about the last three years.
Unfortunatly my pc craped itself a while ago and lost most of my good pics but ill be having a proper photo shoot done probably in june or july but heres a couple teaser pics ( preety close to how it looks now but i have corrected the stance a bit )


So heres the build...

464 /.030 over
probe forged pistons(9.5.1cr) stock crank/thumb rods
781 heads fully ported with 2.19/1.88 valves/ crane roller rockers
comp 270 hydro roller cam set
eddy rpm performer intake and eddy 850 carb(might change to a holly depending on dyno results)
t400 trans with shift kit/ 3000 stall converter/ quick performance 9inch rear end with 355 gears
polished be-cool aluminunrad with dual electrcfans
cpp upper and lower tubular a-arms/ hotchkis tvs system.
(soon to be installed) 1500watt stereo
semi custom interior ( its a 2 seater) with nice racing buckets
ididit columb / autometer phantom guages...
And i could go on and on...

sorry the sound quality is horrible.

I'll post more after i get her on the road

I don't see anything to be unhappy with. That's a sharp looking car, Paul!

Looks GREAT Paul! Nicely done, and well worth the effort.

I have a 66 SD rag that I've owned for close to 30 years. Hopefully some day I'll bring it up to snuff...

Nice 67' Paul.
Is that an SS hood on there?

Looks sharp with some depth in the hood.

Re: Finally might be happy with my 67 Beaumont...

Thanks guys...yes thats a chevelle ss hood.
I plan on doing a proper frame off in 3/5 years...It has to much paint and body filler on it. Most of the body was done before I bought the car but it's been 4 diffrent colors and should be stripped. But it still looks pretty good anyway. I have a new frame in my garage for it and will box it sometime this summer. I'm probably going to replace the doors and fenders but not %100 sure yet. I know theve been patched up poorly.

I dont think I'll ever really be done with it...I always find new things to fix/change and am planning on keeping it the rest of my life.

Re: Finally might be happy with my 67 Beaumont...

Sometimes it's really handy to paint cars for a living...My Beaumont had a few little chips and scraches...on some miner body issues so she got a fresh coat of paint today. Cost me an 12 pack o coors lite to get a friend to help and took 6 hours total in the door till painted...
