That's a cool car Steve!

I think it looks pretty tough without the bumpers....thumbs up

I have a suggestion....how about you give the car a Road Race theme?

Some stripes and some number stickers?

I think the wheels & bumper delete set the pace.

Engine looks cool too and true to your form you got it running right off the bat!smoking smiley

I think the previous owner tried to lighten it and was going to do some racing. Both doors are missing the guts. I found a Polaroid dated '94 and the car looks the same.

Now that the weather is warmer, I've started working on the '64 again. After some close inspection, I found the rear springs are too tall and tiptoeing the wheels. All 4 wheels have the lug locks but the special lug nut tool is missing. Up front the front suspension has been partially rebuilt. All but the ball joints. However it doesn't have the sway bar mounts. I have not attempted to drive it because the front brake lines are disconnected. The 600cfm Holley 4bbl and manifold was taken off. The 102hp heads were converted to a 4 carb but the carb pads were welded too close together. The engine has headers installed so there isn't any lower shrouds. The electric fuel pump was mounted in the engine compartment but worn out and connected with rubber fuel hoses. The fuel tank has a big dent but it has a new sender. The door latches, handles and panels are also missing. And a few other misc small parts.

So far I've made a pair of block off plates for the secondaries and made new fuel lines. A new electric fuel pump mounted to the front floor support. I rebuilt a set nice of factory carbs. My 64 parts car has donated the belly pans, new front cross member, swaybar, fuel tank and all of the door latching mechanisms. None of this bothers me at all. I'm just happier to be playing with it.

I noticed a strange thing today.
I was doing some reassembly on a 64 Monza. I noticed a brown wire and a dark green wire cut off where the wires branch off to the coil. I searched the wiring diagram and they seem to be for a temp sender and a tach. The 64 isn't a Spyder. Can some one explain why these wires exist ?

Makes sense, there are tons of things that are not 64 Monza about this car.

Since November, The front suspension was swapped for the correct 64 type, new rear springs, new brake hoses with dot 5 fluid, fuel tank changed, fuel lines cleaned with inline filter, 4 bbl intake changed for 2 HV carbs, distributor rebuilt, 2 speed wiper and washer. Next should be to rebuild my spare A arms and swap the steering box.
Then I hope to have it over to the new shop at my house. As soon as I finish the tape and texture. Currently the shop is completely empty, but not for long.
