"The New Guy"
Permalink  
 


Hey there, I'm currently in the process of redoing a 68 Biscayne. The car has 36,000 original miles, it's a 12 bolt, disc brake, radio delete car. 

The car was original sold at Boulevard Chevrolet in Rimouski Quebec, Canada. The 307, 2 speed glide that it originally came with are long gone,

so I figured it be a perfect candidate for an L-72 recreation. It still has it's original rear-end it was born with.

I also own a numbers matching 67 Camaro that I did 14 years ago, that is still immaculate, Also I own a 66 C-10 Chevy pick-up that has a 350 sbc with a 700r4 air with conditioning from California that I drive the wheels off of!

I'm certainly enjoying surfing the different posts and classifieds.

Hey Geof, Thanks for the welcome. What car do you have! I sent pictures of my Camaro and of my truck. 

I've owned the Camaro for about 13 years or so and about a year after taking possession I redid the car.

The truck was bought about 10 years ago and rebuilt 2 years later!

Thanks Tim, I mean how can you go wrong with a red Chevy pick up and a 60's Biscayne!

What year is you truck, it looks to be either 86 or 87, nice truck! 

I bought a new 86 sierra short box back in the day, seems so long ago.

It was white with a red interior, those were nice looking trucks.

I'd like to see more pic's of your Biscayne

Murray, thanks for the pictures. That Camaro is beautiful, nice job. Great looking truck as well. I have a 1969 Biscayne, doing a big block 4 speed conversion. 2doorpost has a great bunch of guys here.

Thanks Geof, how far along are you in the conversion? I know that it was a lot bigger task converting to manual than converting to automatic.

Are you going with an original set up or up grading. Do you have any pictures?

Murray

Murray, my car is close to being on the road. I had it running last week, have some issues with the carb. I need to take it to town and get an exhaust put on it. I am going with the original setup, including the dreaded muncie shifter. Lots of fun gathering all the original stuff for the conversion. Still need a proper steering column and the linkages for the reverse lockout. Definitely more work going to the manual. There are some pictures in the members ride section. Going to post a few more pictures soon. Geof

Nice car Geof, where did you find the car? Your a brave man, using the dreaded Muncie shifter lol. What Muncie did you go with? I decided to use a M22 from Auto Gear from Syracuse. I figured by the time I bought one and had it rebuilt I was further ahead to buy a brand new one! I'm having trouble locating a shifter hump, what did you do, I have one for a 67 but of course 68 to 70 are different from 65 to 70! It is a lot of fun researching the proper parts, colors and markings but can also be frustrating trying to find them, as you are probably aware of. and off shore reproduction parts aren't the best in there quality and tolerances. Your almost there keep all of us posted when you get it on the road.

Murray

Thanks Murray. Sorry for not getting back sooner, I was out of town for a few days. I bought the Biscayne south of Indianapolis. I am using an M21 from a 1970 corvette. those autogear trans. are great. The parts for the conversion can be quite challenging to find. If you want to give me a phone call and have a chat that would be great, or send me your number. I might be able to help with finding some parts. Thanks Geof 519-423-1916
