So found this local bought for the 3:23 posi for my 67, got a 2:56 posi to go in it from an old build, I also have a Pontiac 400 turbo lying around so just need to figure what motor to use

Car was cheap clean title very little rust/rot, cars dash was gutted so we spent all day at a u pull and stripped a 78 , pics to follow

Yes car came with doors just no hinges or latches lol

Unfortunately the guy took off the formula hood and cut a giant hole in it to fit his car

Tom was that a disc brake rear end? I am looking to see how the disc brake emergency cables are run from the calipers. I picked up a disc brake rear for mine I need to see how it is routed so I can buy the right parts when I put it in.

Sorry no its drum, my Dads 10th anniversary has rear disc I can't jack it up where its stored, iirc there is a bracket the cables snap into the there is a coil spring that goes between the bracket and the lever on the caliper(inner cable goes though this spring)

These are the crappiest rear brakes I ever had calipers love to leak and sieze up ESP parking lever from my past experience

Looks like you got a steal for $150 for a trailer full of stuff. Looking good. I look forward to seeing the rest of the project.

progress was slow today, had to do parts disasembly on nose section , clean fix paint, mount reassemble, rad support on, bumper and mounts on, nose support on, nose on right wheel well on, pass fender on

We stopped for the nite since the gap fender to door is bad , the discussion is that while the door looks good as is we may have the rear and bottom gaps to small so need to find what these should be

Pics :)
