Bought a radiator, dual fans and fan controller today. Last big purchase I had to make, now I just need to get out to the shop and start wrenching! Might be about time for a BBQ?

This may be an historic day!!!  The end of the period when the 66 stops being garage art and starts being a functional car!!!biggrin

Seriously good luck with it and I hope it all comes together just like you planed!!

It's a clean car really. Has plenty of issues, but will make a fun driver. Wish the paint was nicer, it shows well in pics though.

It's been so long, I need to call Yank converters and make sure I got the correct flex plate. Also, the oil pan I got from Mast has one bolt hole that doesn't line up with anything in the block. I can't find a reference to anyone else having that issue?

Good to see you working on it, the underside looks great. I think you took it off the road right before I entered the scene in 2007.
