The engine was out of the car when I picked it up but I don't think anything is terribly wrong with it aside from piss poor assembly. It apparently blew a head gasket almost immediately after rebuild. Torque specs anyone?? I have the engine tore down to a bare block and all spec'd out. Crank was turned is the only thing I don't really like. That and piston to wall clearance was a little on the high side. Hard for me to measure exactly but it's somewhere around 15 thou. So that will have to be addressed. Paint is peeling and faded in a bad way all over the car. I plan to strip it down and give it a new golden glow.
The interior is in pieces but I think I have all of it. The seats were in need of some love so they got it. Leather cleaner and conditioner to the rescue!
I could see a bunch of funk in the wiper cowl so that had to come off. It was pretty cracked and beat up. All kinds of rodent leftovers in there.
But I didn't break the clips!
Started stripping the engine bay and gave it a once over with the pressure washer, not bad. All the brake lines and wiper motor/linkage are now out.
Last but not least, proof that Dale was here
This is going to be a long term project but I'll be sure to update as I make progress
