Here’s another Corvette. This one is a 1961 4 speed. The cockpit ingress egress is a little more difficult due to dashboard and door shape. This is also the first time I’ve seen a tachometer drive cable coming off the back of the generator.
This one just received some basic fluid service and inspection, nothing major.

Nice. :rockon: The couple of early Vette's that I worked on. Had the tach drive off of the distributor housing. The generator drive is a new one on me.

This has been a busy week for classics. Next up is a 1957 Ford Thunderbird. This still belongs to the original owner, she says she bought it for $3800 61 years ago. I think it might be worth a little bit more than that today. :cash: It's not show quality but it is rust free and very clean and straight.


1957 T-Bird - 1.jpg
1957 T-Bird - 2.jpg
One of the problems is that the trunk wouldn't open.
1957 T-Bird - 3.jpg
After the better part of an hour playing with the key and lubricant, I got it open. Now for the challenge of finding a replacement lock cylinder.
1957 T-Bird - 4.jpg
All the necessary gauges and warning lights.
1957 T-Bird - 5.jpg
The person that dropped the car off said that the radio didn't work, but they just weren't giving it enough time to warm up all those old tubes, after a minute, it works fine : )

Compact little floor shifter.

Shortly after the T-Bird was dropped off, this fire-breathing black beast darkened the doorway.

1967 Chevelle - 6.jpg
1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport.
1967 Chevelle - 7.jpg
Very nicely put together, clean and straight.

Under the hood is a 454 LSX crate motor.

627 HP @ 6300 RPM, 586 Lb. Ft. @ 5100 RPM.
1967 Chevelle - 10.jpg
At 256 miles it has oil leaks from the pan because whoever assembled it didn't put a dab of sealant at each corner : ( Now it's my job to fix it if the customer approves. Other items of note, ride adjustable coil-over shocks, tubular control arms.
1967 Chevelle - 11.jpg
The exhaust is carried thru mandrel bent stainless tubing and Magnaflow mufflers. A 12 bolt posi with 4.10 gears concludes the drivetrain. Honorable mention goes to the rear disc brakes and ride adjustable shocks.
1967 Chevelle - 12.jpg
Mated to the engine is a Tremec 6 speed, driven by a Wilwood operated Center Force clutch.

That T'bird is nice! Owning a car for 61 years is something. Wonder how much it's worth now?

I had a cousin that had a 67 Chevelle with a 427, and a bunch of friends that had them with the 396's.

Finished up a 66 Chevy C-10.
Upgraded the brakes to dual reservoir master cylinder with power booster. Replaced and hand bent all new steel brake line to replace the rusty/marginal, old stuff. Every length of tubing is one piece, no couplings or unions to splice it together. I don't like the quality of the off the shelf restoration tubing, they just don't fit right. Really happy with how it came out.

66 Chevy - 2.jpg
66 Chevy - 3.jpg
66 Chevy - 1.jpg
New master cylinder and booster and lines that tuck behind, out of sight.
66 Chevy - 6.jpg
Most guys mount the proportioning valve right next to the master cylinder, but I mounted it down on the frame to keep it out of sight. Coiled the tubing to accommodate flex between the body and frame. All the tubing on the body and frame are held in place with proper insulated clamps.
66 Chevy - 5.jpg
Someone else had cobbled together the rear axle brake lines and it was a mess, so I didn't have a pattern to follow. I think what I made fits the shape and factory clamps pretty well.
66 Chevy - 7.jpg
Right rear wheel brake line.
66 Chevy - 4.jpg
Also made new trans oil cooler lines to replace the leaky patched together ones that were half steel, half rubber hose.

I've got classic cars coming out my ears! Three came in last week and two more yesterday :jawdrop:
FJ40 - 1.jpg
Waiting in the wings for a carburetor is this 69 FJ40.
The next vehicle isn't vintage yet, but it looks vintage.

Morgan - 1.jpg
This is a 2012 Morgan 3 Wheeler.
Morgan - 2.jpg
Powered by a 1979cc V-twin engine
Morgan - 3.jpg
It has a rattle underneath that needs to be diagnosed.
Morgan - 4.jpg
The Cockpit. I assume that a helmet is required, because there's one on the passenger side floor.

Next up is another Chevelle. This one is a 1970 454 SS.
70454SS - 1.jpg
Halo headlights.
70454SS - 2.jpg
Classic lines.
70454SS - 3.jpg
A few hundred horses under the hood
70454SS - 4.jpg
Following a silver paint, chrome and brushed stainless appearance under the hood.
70454SS - 5.jpg
Fabricated valve covers.
70454SS - 6.jpg
The customer is complaining that the brakes are having a hard time slowing the horses down, so it's getting a complete brake system upgrade with larger rotors and caliper that will easily fit inside the 20" wheels.
70454SS - 7.jpg
Auto Meter gauges.
70454SS - 8.jpg
A mildly frustrating B&M shifter and one cup holder to share with the passenger.
Also rebuilding the LSD diff and adding 3.73 gears.

Working on this 1981 Corvette, replacing all the brake hydraulic components due to leakage that caused the warning light on the dash to get the drivers attention. Too many years since the last fluid flush. This one has 4 wheel disc with 4 piston calipers.

81 Vette - 1.jpg
81 Vette - 2.jpg
81 Vette - 3.jpg
1981 doesn't seem that old, but I guess if it has a carburetor, it qualifies as a classic.

Also replacing the broken turn signal switch. This one has the tilt and telescoping steering column.
81 Vette - 4.jpg
Tilt and telescoping steering column, full instrumentation.

Next is this 1970 El Camino SS 454. The customer complaint is overheating. Once again, too many years since the last coolant flush and it's turning into rusty mud. I'll be flushing the block, radiator and heater core and replacing all the hoses, thermostat and water pump.
70EC - 1.jpg
I wonder if Chevy will ever do a retro El Camino?
70EC - 2.jpg
70EC - 5.jpg
Looks nice on the outside, but the cooling system is a rusty mess.
70EC - 3.jpg
Original instrument panel and bail handle console shifter.
70EC - 6.jpg
Ceramic coated headers, dual exhaust w/crossover and Flowmasters. Final drive is a 12 bolt posi.
70EC - 4.jpg
The customer also wants to get the cowl induction system working again.

Word to the wise, keep up on your fluid service to avoid these kind of problems. :secret:

Had a buddy with a '80 Vette with the same colors in and out. But didn't have the strips. Teased him about the inside looking like a used tampon. :lol:

Had another buddy that had an El Cammy. The same as the one pictured. Boy....that thing hauled ass!

You posting this pictures is like I'm reliving my youth. :lol:

The Raiders Rat Rod

Post by Retired BLM Rig » Sun Oct 21, 2018 1:03 am

I guess I'll title this entry, "The Raiders Rat Rod!"
This is a unique vehicle build. The body is a 51 GMC step side and the suspension and drivetrain are from a late 80's Corvette, complete with fuel injected engine, Alcoa front spindles and control arms, rack and pinion steering, four wheel disc brakes and IR suspension. It's not a show quality build, but everything is functional and I can tell that someone put a ton of hours into the fabrication required to make it all work. :jawdrop:

51 Stepside - 2.jpg
51 Stepside - 3.jpg
The sticker in the back window gives away the paint scheme.
51 Stepside - 10.jpg
I'm not familiar with this particular PFI system.
51 Stepside - 11.jpg
Starts right up, idles smooth and sounds good.
51 Stepside - 7.jpg
Corvette IFS.
51 Stepside - 8.jpg
Lots of Alcoa aluminum components.
51 Stepside - 9.jpg
Not the prettiest welds but it works.
51 Stepside - 6.jpg
Corvette IRS.
51 Stepside - 4.jpg
Old school floor parking brake is functional.
51 Stepside - 5.jpg
Bonus points if you can tell me what this is.
51 Stepside - 5.2.jpg
It's mounted to the window frame above the gauges.

That's a good guess considering the crappy quality of my pictures. :lol:
It's actually a traffic light viewer. Here's some better pictures from the internet.
