  1. 65 Horn button assembly sequence

    Electrical & Wiring
    I have all the pieces, I think, but some pictures on this site show different pieces for the assembly of the horn button circuit. I replaced the cancel cam because the plastic knob broke off, and put the wheel back on. I think that is all ok. It is the sequence of the stuff between the wheel and...
  2. Tow bar questions

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I hooked up a harbor freight tow bar and the car (65 Chevelle) doesn't turn with the van pulling it. Are there any solutions? I see RV's pulling cars all the time. If the harbor freight unit is bad, what is good? Thanks
  3. 65 how does this horn assembly go together?

    Interiors
    I am trying to make my steering wheel and horn back to original. I bought the assembly from Ground up and it reads IHC-KIT horn contact kit 67-68 Camaro and most standard wheels. I think that is the right one. I got a drawing from one of the posts on this site but it is not clear enough for my...
  4. Hey 65 Guys who put in your own seat belts

    Interiors
    I bought these retractable boxes in the picture from Johnny Law and I believe now that was a mistake. It hit either the seat or the door, depending on which way I mount it. also, If I mount it parallel with the door so nothing hits it, the belt won't come out. It has to come out of the retractor...
  5. Black spark plugs

    Performance
    Got her running. Starts good. Cam makes her idle rough. Set the idle a little high until I can get it running right. I am going to go to get it dyno tuned but I am wondering with the equipment below, when the plugs are black and she sputters a little when I get on it at higher RPM should I...
  6. 65 Conv: How did you clean up the parts and frame?

    Convertibles
    I an getting ready to have a professional guy do my convertible top (he did my upholstery and it looks great) and I was thinking while I have the top off, I should get in there and overhaul all the stuff that I can't normally get to when the top is on there. Have any of you done this before and...
  7. Who makes the best quality convertible tops

    Convertibles
    Who makes the best quality convertible tops? It is time to do my 65 top. Why would you want plastic windows vs. glass? I would think that the plastic window gets fuzzier quicker than glass. Looking for private owners, not salespeople responses. Thanks
  8. What hardware holds down the 65 automatic console?

    Interiors
    I converted my 65 Convertible from column shift bench seats to floor shift bucket seats. Sine there was nothing there, I don't know what hardware was used to hold the console to the floor. Does anyone know? It is not clear in my old assembly manual. Thanks
  9. Is my 65 radiator spacer needed?

    Heating & Cooling
    I have a 65 with 327. Bought a Champion aluminum radiator. Fins are higher than the spacer between the core support and the radiator. I saw one guy who removed his and just mounted the radiator to the core support. My spacer is bowed and if I tighten the bolts on the radiator, the spacer top and...
  10. 327 crankcase breathing

    Performance
    I just got my 65 327 engine back. The rebuilder plugged the hole in the block that is behind the oil sender. He said that was the old crankcase breather. I have aluminum Edelbrock e-street heads, performer intake, super comp headers, and Edelbrock 1406 600cfm carb. How should I set this...

  12. Is the Edlebrock 2601 and 1406 carb a safe bet?

    Engine
    I am getting my 65 Chevelle 327 rebuilt with just a mild cam. Jegs guy recommended these for it. I also looked up the 1478 Electric choke kit. Any issues with these for my Chevelle? It is a convertible, just a cruiser. I'm a rookie at this, learning as I go, but loving every minute of it. Thanks.

  14. 65 Saginaw to Super T10 Swap problems!

    Transmission & Driveline
    I'm having issues. My car was originally an automatic and converted to a 4 speed saginaw prior to making it to me. The saginaw was not working behind the 406 with 425 hp. Shortly after I bought the car I noticed the clutch was sticking and shifting became more and more difficult a car warmed up...
  15. How to Value a 1965 Malibu SS Project

    What's it worth?
    I had a baby... Now I am debating selling my 65 Chevelle that I will not have any time to reassemble in the near future. I have a guy interested, but I have no idea how to value the vehicle. I'd really appreciate some help figuring out a reasonable value for the car. The car is completely...
  16. 65 AM Radio connections

    Electrical & Wiring
    I just got a65 AM radio to replace the Sparkomatic AM/FM radio that was in the car. It has 3 tabs in the back corner of the radio. I can't find anything on the rest of the internet as to what each tab is for and the connector on the car is no longer there. Do any of you know the purpose of each...
  17. 66 Console in a 65?

    Interiors
    My 65 console is a POS. Even if good it is not very good. Have any of you put a 66 console into a 65? That console has a locking compartment and looks much better. Thanks.
