*Not a Post Sedan

Today was a good day....I met Dan early this morning with an "Open" car trailer and we headed over the Wisconsin borded...just like in the Move "Stripes"   :bigthumbup:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=765b-T5P450

We picked up a very honest 3 owner 1969 SS396 All Original Born-With Drive Train. This will be another over the top - "Day2" Build   :3gears:

We also stopped on our way home to visit all my Wisconsin buddies - we had a great lunch at Quaker Steak and Lube.

Pics.....

Dave and Dan

The second owner pulled the original standard 3 speed and installed a Muncie 4 speed....which is what is currently in the Chevelle. We also have the original 3 speed standard Muncie

I stopped at Dan's tonight for a visit and to brain storm our newest project.

Dan shows me the very first "Day2" purchase for the Chevelle

I know Kurt will approve of these





Dan

I removed all the bumper brackets today and will be sending off the original bumpers off to the chromer......here is what was on the back of the front bumper.....perhaps the initials of a prior owner and possibly re-chromed in 1978.



Table of parts heading to Powder Coater

Today - Before I separated the body from the frame.... I had to test fit the very rare hard to find BBC Mickey Thompson Super Scavanger Headers......very tight fit.....but they do indeed fit.
Next is to send the headers out to be coated the correct orange as they were when new.



BODY OFF
