my canadian 67 build

ok so this project has been goin on for 2 years and figuerd id thro a post up about it. through out this project iv been through 4 girl friends my savings + more but i will not give up on this car
when i was 13 my mother bought a 1967 Chevelle Malibu for my step father. unfortunately they bought it at night not knowing the extent of rust and rot. but when i got my lic. she gave the car to me. at that point it was a 327 out of a 67 Camaro(researched the numbers.) attached to the original powerglide. it leaked from everywhere haha. it had non power drum breaks all the way around. and non power stearing. for my senior project in school i decided to rebuild the engine and upgrade the breaks. as a present my father gave me a turbo 400 with a shift kit he had laying in his garage. after that i dropped some summmit (garbage) long tube headers. with a pypes X exhaust. i am in the middle of repairing some holes in the floor. putting in a b&m gate shifter. and checking the timing on the engine and adjusting valves. so i will keep this up dated. any questions or sugestions r open. thanks for lookings. i have most of my pics on photobucket so heres the link http://s872.photobucket.com/albums/ab290/slacker67/

Re: my canadian 67 build

On the Canadian '67s, red interior was only offered with bucket seats. I'm guessing your trim tag says paint 9 RR, TP 27, trim 750; on the bottom line it says A51 M35 C08.

A column shifter Powerglide with buckets, probably built after November 21, 1966.

The car looks like a nice project and it seems to be coming along nicely. Good luck and thanks for posting.

Re: my canadian 67 build

ok so got a couple things done tonight. the gas line split the other day. so i droped the tank today and took out the line. im gona welled in the tire mount tmw in the trunk wile the tank its out. and finish up the floor hopfully befor i do the line. but it seems every time i go to order the line i run into a question. im gona order 3/8 line stainless steal. but i was wondering if they sell the braided line for fuel lines. anyone ever use it? where would i be able to order it. updated pics are here http://s872.photobucket.com/albums/ab290/slacker67/

Re: my canadian 67 build

Interesting car, like the black vinyl roof. I too have a 67 Malibu (Canadian) doing a similar (frame on) restoration with all the familiar rust areas. My trunk, lower quarters, around the rear windows, couple of frame mounts, front fenders (have new ones to replace) and the front lower body by the firewall/front fender mount. Thank goodness my floors are all solid. I've spent countless hours cutting, fabricating and welding in new metal, the car is now about 98% rust free! It's a long road so don't be discouraged, my previous Chevelle (66 convert) came off the frame many many years ago and is still in pieces. When I found my 67 (all original down to the hubcaps) I didn't want to take another one off the frame. I chose to fix it up, drive it, fix a little more etc. Then 8 years went by before I turned the key again. Good to see your car on the road, we'll all be there someday!

Re: my canadian 67 build

Looking at your pictures with the gas tank held up with the chain reminded me of a story...a friend of mine was driving his 66 Beaumont Convertible down the I-5 near Seattle when his gas tank literally fell out onto the freeway! He got it towed and they chained it up through what was left of the trunk. Not much of a mechanic he is probably still driving around with it chained up!

Re: my canadian 67 build

ok so ik its long over do but here is alil update. i finaly got my new compressor working so i got back to my project. i welded up a mounting plate to get my b&m shifter in. also finished up welding the exhaust and tacked in the plate for the spair tire mount. but i dont have the rest of the mount so i have to figuer that out to. i posted some pics up on my photobucked cuz idk how to get them on here. tmw i have to get the gas tank back in and the exhaust mounted back on. and have to finish putin in the wheel cylinders. if you look at the pics the reason the trunk is 3 differend colors is cuz i was testin to see where i was gona go with it. i decided to go with a truck bed coating then gona paint red over it. more tmw guys.
