overdrive

My '70 SS454 build

Recommended Posts

No plans for an overdrive at this time. I need to apply some more labels on parts under the car, some paint marks I found when I took the car apart, and get pics. Some closer pics under the hood.....

What a work of art. That jewl is so clean I'd be afraid to drive it. Nevertheless a slight modernization on a very well done and fittingly CONCOURS d'ELEGANCE contender. JMHO

Nice job! Really nice work there. I like the few upgrades while keeping a somewhat stock appearance.

It’s always great when you are at the end of a restoration and appreciate all the hard work that went into it.

....... and realize you need a well deserved break. LOL

Thanks to all!

 

My daughter and I took the SS to town Saturday night for our local Throwback Cruise on Broadway. It's a twice a summer get together to get alot of people out of the house for the evening and cruise Broadway like we did years ago. It was a fun evening. The police had to bust some that were running with no mufflers, etc. They were busy. There's always some that have to push the limits.

I was able to get the 2.56 posi out this evening in about 2 hrs. I should be able to start putting the 3.55 under the car Thursday evening.

Thank you, guys. The rear axle is working out great. It's a fun car. My new son inlaw had never ridden in it, until last night. I let him drive it in town for a bit, and then we switched. I may have scared him a little when I mashed it after I'd had to stop at an intersection.

Yes, I agree. I went to a car show at the Illinois Veterans Home yesterday and they always allow burnouts as the cars leave the show area, but still on the property. I took my turn and the car really came alive. I should have asked somebody to get video. 

I did a little more detailing Friday.

A friend found this photo that a professional took at the Veterans Home Show a few weeks ago. 

I've done a little more detailing and a few shows. We went to a show out in Kansas with 1907 vehicles, all 72 and older, and another at Springfield, Illinois with over 1000 vehicles.
