BARNFIND 66 CORSA TURBO FINALLY GETS ATTENTION!!
Posted by: sweet66monza ()
Date: August 29, 2009 05:04PM

today is the day. Here are some "before shots". It kind of kills me to do anything at all to this untouched original, but i will fully document everything to make sure it goes back to exactly how it was. Four vairs are on the road already, so this will make five. Im not sure exactly how far i go with it, but i will at least be removing all the suspension and engine, sandblasting and painting everything, reassembling it, fixing the motor and the turbo, and doing the brakes.

here are some pics while moving it to the shop with two dead cylinders, no brakes and a huge cloud of blue smoke (probably from the stuck turbo)

The second last picture will become a classic - much like Matt's reclining shot on the old Chopper. Cool!

i know i need a hair cut pretty bad. This one will be staying completely stock with the options it has, only because we have all the paperwork and the original sales reciept.

The car is coming apart very nicely, as if it wants to be restored. I have the whole right side of the front suspension disassembled and have only broken ONE BOLT so far!!!!!!! It is amazing to work on something that the PO hasnt messed with. None of the bolts are rounded off and everything is in great shape.

"and everything is in great shape."

Then why take it all apart? I focus on the parts that are not in good shape first!

Phil- i wish it was that easy. The ladies are actually sort of afraid of the fast/cool cars and my extremely good looks!!!! ggggggggggggg

Ed-everything is in great shape for a car that has been sitting in a field since 1969. At the minimum it needed brakes and engine work, but my dad wants everything freshened up underneath it.

Here are pics with the rear suspension out. Time to document everything in the engine area and pull the powerpack.

Pulled the motor the night before last and spent last night removing sheet metal and documenting all the screws. The sand blasting begins.
