Hello everyone, I am a new member here from Owen Sound Ontario. Five years ago I got a lead on a 1965 Chevelle 300 Deluxe 2 door sedan that had been stored in a barn not far from where I live since 1973. I contacted the owner and made arrangements to view it. There had been  some amateur  effort to restore it ,the body had ben separated from the frame and some primer was on the passenger side, no drivetrain. After spending 7 years restoring my 1966 Acadian Canso SD I said I would not do another frame off but the price was right and my resto man was available so a price was agreed upon. It needed a lot of parts, both quarters, all floor pans, engine,trans,interior, front windshield etc. I found a 1966 327/300 hp block assembly, a pair of '462 heads and a M21 4 speed for a total cost of $650, all needing rebuilding. I worked at an Automotive Supply Business at the time so a lot of parts were purchased new at a reasonable cost. Well after replacing the frame, rebuilding the engine and trans and upgrading the front end, including disc brakes, paint and body, floors and interior it was finished in 2013. I have become very fond of this car and it performs well with the combo of parts it has received! I hope Postsedan can move some of the photos on the Canadian Poncho site( Bought a 1965 Chevelle 300 ) to this site as my Computer skills in this area are limited.Thanks.

Hi 68bel, the car was in a barn for almost 38 years parked under a beam and this is where the bats roosted. That load on the back window is bat guono and it surprised me that it didn't hurt the windshield stainless!
