As some of you already know.....I am very excited and humble to be restoring "El Malo" for Bob and Frank D'Antonio.

The project is currently underway....stay tuned for more pics. "El Malo" is a very Historic Olds Drag Car. We are currently preserving the paint, glass and interior and restoring the chassis, suspension and the rear end.

I am in need of a 1969 dated "TO" 3.91 Olds 12 bolt housing.

See pics here....

I am very excited for this restoration!!!

I have been keeping in touch with Bob as this car goes from barnfind to MCACN 2018. (I can’t wait to have our cars together)

I hope to get the rear for you. What is the TT build date?

PS: I think ElMalo came New with 3.42’s..... look at the rad and rad top plate I think it is the same as mine 3 row not 4 row for 3.91 and higher numerical. (If Bob wants 3.91’s I would put a TM rear in and swap it with 3.91 gears) IMHO

Ryan

I have great Olds contacts, hope we can help.

I have 30 years of catching up to you

I can’t go back in time, so I can only learn each day.....

I plan to put the driveshaft in tomorrow, inch by inch.

El Malo is ridiculous!!!

Awesome clean up and color work. Is the remaining factory undercoating getting anything special to freshen it up or is it being left alone?

Saving the undercoat where it applies and where it was bad....it is being replicated to the same match and texture.

A 442 in the background is in for some freshening up as well.

It looks like a nice shop out in the country.

I have the Chassis 90% complete, I delivered the Chassis. The Frame and Body will be reunited, new date coded front windshield is going in. The front clip will be hung and gapped correctly. Getting exciting now.
