Hello all!  My Name's Tim - Got the 67 Biscayne about 2 months ago - lusted after one for 25 yrs or so, owned COPO hubcaps for it for abt 20 years!( I know - pretty odd sequence huh?!)

bought it just on faith and a few pics - had it shipped to me. I lucked out- car has the protecto plate, all receipts current to the mileage showing on the odo...55k miles and the original dealer invoice etc... - only prob for me is... it's not Nantucket Blue and it's a six banger... Changes are in work already!

anyway - great Forum - love the specificity of it! I'm gonna like it here!

Great car. One of my favorite of my many favorites post cars. It appears to already have three pedals. I don't see an automatic shifter stuck up in the park position.
I also look forward to seeing progress reports!!
Welcome,
Jim

Nice Biscayne, Tim.  Welcome aboard, you'll love it here.  I bought the dog dishes for my Buick four years before I found the car to stick 'em on.  I understand your situation completely.

Thank you! I'll try and answer all the questions in one post -

Yup - Jarhead I is - 87-95 Active Duty

Best Dog Ever - Margo - Australian Shepherd...

Bought the car out of Wisconsin - I was prepared for a rust bucket at the steal I got on the car  - seriously dodged a bullet - it has some very minor things but overall - OUTSTANDING

The guy had 2 for sale one was a 427 clone, this girl got no attention because of the 3 on the tree and the 250/6 banger...I think he wanted it to just go away plus I don't want someone else's car - I like to do my own - cost me almost half again as much to ship it to OK than it did to buy it.

Plans... (before you gasp or judge - hear me out LOL - I know how purists are as I'm guilty also with the right car) I've already got a stroked LS in work - 427 CID and I'm gonna run a carb on it. and hey, I can technically run 427 badges on the fenders! original interior will stay factory - Fawn cloth bench etc... just new... I will install a vintage air or ? AC because I drive my stuff and I sweat enuf all day already. (My 48 has no AC of course and it's like driving an oven with the door open)

I'm not lowering the car - it's low enuf as is... gonna use the Chris Alston front coil overs and control arms and am going to retrofit the rear to be a close to original if it were an F41 4 link setup ( Spohn stuff maybe?) I am going to keep the 8.2 10 bolt but swap in some moser axles - new diff/gears and a few low key reinforcements - you'd be surprised what a built 10 bolt can withstand. and yup - Discs on each corner. Stockton wheel did the fat rallyes on my C10 so I'm going to go 15" all around and 9 wide rear prob 7 wide front with the steelies from them. They are a great company. ( I get to run my COPO poverty caps yay!!!)

Will run a 700R4 (gonna hafta be a tough one!) and I will find a way to use the column shifter as my selector lever...I thought about a 6 spd Tremec but with an interior the size of the LA Coliseum - I don't wanna cut in on passenger space in case I want to scare 5 other people at once or become an UBER driver LOL.  ( I have one in my C10 - I know right, who in the hell puts a TR6060 in an old C10? Weirdos like me do!)

as soon as it cools down here in OK - Its going on the rotisserie I bought and get loved on and Nantucket Blue sprayed.

I bought my 48 Ford a couple years ago and My daddy has given me hell daily because my Granddad sold Chevrolets in OKC from 1935 til 1972 - I think this car will probably stop that behavior!

That's all I know right now...send money!

Tim,

I love your Plan.....you will not offend anyone on this web site on what you plan on doing with YOUR car

I am a Huge fan of the LS.....If it were mine I would not put a carb on it......I would want that 100% LS feel and reliability

Nantucket Blue it is.....well done.

My good friend just debuted this yesterday











Dan

Sweet 57! - my first car was a '55 210.... My logic or stubborness on that carb decision depending on how you look at it is: The red pickup I have HAD a 305 in it for years - it's got a 406 now w the GMPP Ramjet MPFI on top that I had setup by AZ Speed - ( the ECU in those is very limited as to what you can do w em...) bigger injectors and a reflash since they are setup from GM for the 350. anyway - it's great - reliable etc - but sinking 2 pumps and rerouting / redoing all the lines isn't something I wanna clutter up this car with. I guess I'm gettin old! but since it came w a small block - it still has one - my 48 - it's got a flathead - 2 2bbls - reliable as all get out. plus - I can fix it on the side of the road - not so much the case if the pickup drops on me...(knock on wood)
My only thought w the Biscayne will be hood clearance with the carb - I was locked in on a BBC transplant then the engineering guy in me said : weight, mass, reliability, enormous potential! etc.. so that's where I'm headed. - I DO NOT want to run a cowl hood on this car I want it to be obnoxious, sound obnoxious but look sedate to the uninformed millenial in their Beemer or Mustang...Some fabbing will have to be done to get the LS to set under the stock hood...and not scrape the pan on the asphalt - may have to run Dry Sump ... we shall see...besides, I loooove to do things the hard way! ( ask anyone who knows me!) or maybe I'll just run those 30" rims w spinners and o ring tires and I wont have to worry abt it? - uhmmm...no!LOL

Tim,

You're fitting-in just fine on here.....I like your words and meaning

Larry (Spike) will also be doing an LS build this winter on his Biscayne. It's gonna be an exciting winter. Looking forward to both builds

Dan

Welcome from Ontario Canada

Great plans!!

No drama here, and we don't (in general) push any ideas on people. (My car, my money)

Lots of great suggestions, tech support, contacts, hints, you name it.

Ryan

Wow, great car for a great start. I like your plan very much. I will echo the idea of keeping the fuel injection, I have had an LS1 in my '53 Studebaker for 10 years and 35k miles and just love it. Great power, great drivability and great fuel mileage. With the cavernous engine compartment on these cars, clearance for an LS in any direction should not be a problem.

If my lowered Studebaker does not have pan clearance problems with a modified 2000 F-body pan, you should not have a problem either. Especially if you are going to retain a close to stock ride height.  Looking forward to following your progress!
