I never thought that this thread would be this long running when I started it. I will keep adding as long as they keep showing up.

  I was hoping the customer would keep it as a "Sleeper".  I've always liked the simple, pointy, aero looking lines, glad the customer added some "Grunt".

Cheers,
Ferrous

@FerrousBueller  I agree the hood was a little over the top. It block your vision some when sitting in the driver's seat.

AHHH, Mopar, LOL. Thanks @bc45. I had two friends that each had 67 cuda's, one a blue convert with a 273 and the other, also blue, fastback with a 383. Both were very nice running cars. The only thing wrong with cars of that era is they didn't corner real well. They were made for "right straight ahead" driving (racing). Nice to see that Camaro done but I'm with Ferrous on this one, a "sleeper" would have worked much better, especially for that year. Nice '72 3/4 Ton Chevy. My dad bought a '71 1/2 Ton new, with a 307. I beat the snot out of that truck and it took it, for awhile. We hauled 2 sleds in the bed and 4 on a trailer and when we got home, after a 150 mile round trip, you could pull the shock studs out of the lower support brackets. Guess I had loaded it a bit heavy and drove it a little too hard that day. Got it stuck one day and had to use sand to put out the fire. Oh I drove my poor father nuts. Had to rebuild the motor after that. I didn't get to drive it much after that, if at all. Still don't understand why. ^*? No sense of humor. }=  &{

This is some ones project they are just starting to work on. 1964 Pontiac La Mans with a 326. they brought it to us to rebuild the front end all the bushings, ball joints, tie rods, new bigger sway bar,Idler arm, pit man arm and box, springs, rear springs that give it a 2 inch drop rear sway bar and 4 shocks.
 




at least they are starting with things that make the car safe and derivable

If I recall correctly, earlier Tempests had the tranny in the rear.  Is the one in this one in the traditional spot?

At least he's starting in the right direction. If you can't keep it on the road there's not much point putting paint on it.

@Rider Ron
Unfortunatly it is not one of the rear trans cars. Those were made from 61 to 63 on the compact Y body. Those also had rear independent suspension and came with a 4 cyl engine that was the right bank of the pont  389 V 8.

The 85 Camaro came back to upgrade the brakes to Aerospace components Brake system, also getting new rear tire as the stock street tires keep breaking loose every time you give it any gas. Ill get some pics of the tire tomorrow when they come in.
