Well I am back, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. Figured I better give an update on my Biscayne. I have a fair bit done, had the body on a rotisserie, blasted the bottom of the car, sprayed it with PPG DP90. Have the frame rolling, rear end is in, front suspension is in. Had all the misc. parts blasted and painted. The interior is out, cleaned up the inside of the car, welded roll bar holes etc. Also have the pedal assy. rebuilt and installed, rebuilt the steering column, fuel and brake lines are in. I have also acquired a couple of more cars, a 1966 Bel air, and another 1969 Biscayne, the Biscayne is all original, paint, drivetrain, 48,000 miles, real nice car, has a few small dents but a real time capsule. I will try to do more posts with pics.

Thanks for the nice comments. I got the Bel air from a friend who lives south of London, it came with a date code correct drivetrain,427cid,425hp, I will be putting that back in the car in the fall. The fathom green one I got out of Indiana, it was posted on ebay last October, got it off of craigslist, got a really great deal on it. I am surprised someone did not snap it up sooner. Also have the build sheets for it. I am trying to dig up more history on the green one, will keep you posted. Geof

Thought I'd post some more pictures of my blue Biscayne. It's almost complete and ready for sale. I took the complete driveline out of the green Biscayne and put it in the blue one. I will post more pictures of the outside of the car and some underneath when I get them. 

   Geof

- sorry about some of the pictures being sideways, not sure what happened.

That looks beautiful. Taking notes on the engine detailing, as I will be rebuilding mine next winter. Couple questions:

-what are those straps that tie from exhaust manifolds at #1 and #2 cylinders that tie into the upper a arms? is that a torque strap thing, and is it factory?
-where did you source the new exhaust collector-to-headpipe studs?
-How did you restore the exhaust manifolds? is that bare blasted-clearcoated, or a paint?
-I saw on Graveyard Cars show that they paint the exhaust manifolds engine color, is that a Mopar only? Did our Chevies not get orange on the manifolds from factory?

Thanks for any help, great job!

The Stop Lift GM Recall is one of my favorite Chevrolet Recalls of all.....I have installed many of them on my restorations.

It was a recall and was meant to keep the throttle from sticking when a motor mount would break. A very practical device.

Chevrolet exhaust manifolds were cast with Chevy Orange over-spray.

Mopars were all painted Mopar Orange.....that is until they were no longer Mopar Orange.

Restoring exhaust manifolds is a process.....I have tried many of them. There is a heat treated process and a paint process, all depends on your budget and preference.

Usually the cable restraints were only on the left side as that is the side that would lift from engine torque. Once they came out with the motor mounts with the metal retainers in them the cables were no longer needed. Of course us hot rodders just put solid mounts and enjoyed the shake and vibration.

Kevin, thanks for the compliments, I put the stop lift cables back on the car, just in case. Like Dan & Pat said it was in case of a motor mount breaking. I got the studs from Summit Racing, they are made by Dorman, not very expensive. I had the manifolds glass blasted, then I coated them with the high heat exhaust coating from Eastwood, it is called factory gray, the one in the can, just brush it on. It probably isn't factory correct but it does last.

Wow Geof that looks fantastic great work there!! I have 2 questions. Is the blue car you are working on the Super Stock car we had talked about when I purchased the control arms from you? And what did you use for a coating on your hood latch and hinges?
Thanks
