Re: Detroit area 1969 base convertible

Tonight I cleaned up the column then primed and painted it. I removed the Zbar and the drivers side header without dropping the R&P (Yay!).

The JBA parts look good but they don't make Cleveland headers so I ruled them out for exhaust stuff long ago and never looked back at them.

Re: Detroit area 1969 base convertible

Thanks Chris! The header interference with the rack stopped me cold but I have new shorty headers from Sanderson that I hope will clear. I need to pull the Zbar tonight for a test fitment. May need to tweak the motor mounts and have already looked at converting to hydraulic clutch release system if ...

Re: 2019 Hot Rod Power Tour

Thanks for the replies guys. I was starting to worry that this forum had nothing but “is this the correct finish on my nuts” guys. While I can appreciate a restored car, driving them is what is exciting to me.

Re: 2019 Hot Rod Power Tour

I’m surprised how little response this thread has received. I thought posting pics might generate some interest. Today was cold and rainy. Tomorrow we’re headed to Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum then to Norwalk Ohio to finish the tour. It’s been a great time with my dad. I love how all these people D...
