New 65 biscayne project
Permalink  
 


Decided to jump into another full on project. It needs floors (already ordered full length left and right halves) trunk floor, rear window channel, front windshield/dash channel. All the usual stuff. It came with a 4 door 65 belair that is 90% rust free. I've already cut most of good stuff out of it. It has a non running 307 in it currently, I Plan on putting my chevelles old 396 in it.

Parts aren't reproduced for the biscayne sedans like they are for the impalas. Either way, the parts that are are reasonably priced

Love it. Black would be great. Red interior headache LOL. I sold mine (Bel Air) to help with the Chevelle resto years ago.

Nice one Brad! This is going to be a fun project!

So the car has a powerglide currently, wondering if I should run it or start looking for something else... anyone run a powerglide behind a big block?

Ran a P/G behind a BB in my old El Camino. It lived but whined a bit louder than before the BB swap. Had limited traction so that probably helped it. It was stock w/ unknown miles. FWIW

I'm a ways out from this thing running lol running the powerglide might be ok, I'll see how desperate and broke I am when I get to that point!

Need to finish separating the old floors from the rockers and weld the tow boards that I cut out of the four door.
