Moved the 63 down to the garage today. Pulled off the crusty running boards and only broke one bolt. The passenger side has some rust around the jack point that will need to be fixed, but the driver side was very solid. Fitted the rear seat back in, mainly to just get it out of the way and did some more cleaning on the interior and dash. Started cleaning on the engine and it appears that the engine is not the original after all. The engine code puts it as a September 61 engine so that makes more sense that it is stale air in a 63. Here's a few pics from today...

Started the clean up of the trunk. Underneath the accumilated 20 years of mouse funk it is cleaning up pretty good. Tank is out and will go off to be boiled out and re-lined this weekend. Thinking about putting a battery to it this weekend and see if the ole engine will fire up. It will spin by hand pretty easy and has compression, so we will see.....

Thats one of Autowerks beams isn't it? I thought about having them build me one just because of the way they build them it gives that little bit of extra ground clearance. Tina is going to look sick Smile

Yeah, it is a 5" beam from Autowerks, Sam does awesome work and is a great guy to deal with. She's slowly coming together and will hopefully be out and about sometime this spring... bounce
