I have a high quality xenon tube inductive timing light...and an old Penske engine anaylzer...does a thousand things but for which I only used it for dwell!
I assume it still works, but instructions long gone..... both vintage 70's units...
Also have various size distributer wrenches (at least used to, but those too are boxed up for me as well...have to go dig).

Thanx Bob.. will do. I can tell you one thing...this is not going to be a restoration project...it will be a modification and repair project. black car, some kind of chrome rims, stereo, suspension mods, appearance mods, gauges, probably bucket seats and console, shoulder harnesses (I am not going to settle for plain ole seatbelts for him and his friends and family.

Definitely go with the Pertronix electonic ignition module. I put it on my 66 Lemans and it made a world of difference. I got sick and tired of adjusting points (by the way, I have several of those wrenches if you want one.)

one of the tools I am going to look for...that spring hex head for the points, but will probably do what you said since it will make things much easier for my son and for me, besides, better performance. I have not installed one of those before, but can't imagine much to it.

Sweet looking Olds Tim. Hope you and your son have a blast in restoring the car. And yes, frequent updates would be fine. We are gearheads after all.

Too bad gas is so expensive, otherwise a 455 would fit just fine.

true, not only the gas, but a teenager with a 455 in it.......not in the future as far as I am concerned!!!!! the ole 330 with a 2brl is fine for him lol!!!!!!!!

actually, if there ever was an engine swap, would go with an LS motor to get all the latest technology and fuel injection with one of the trannys to go with it. better everything at that point.

I always say...if I can do it, anybody can do it! If I remember correctly, it's just a little module that screws in where the points were.

If you can't find that tool, pm me. I'm pretty sure I've got a couple in my tool box somewhere. I'll mail it to you.

Kinda makes me feel selfish. I never wanted anything but a two door so that I didn't have to share my ride with others......silly, as most of my buddies had cars that were way better than what I was driving.

Of course he is like twenty generations younger than I. Different world.

true, but, I know, you will say "what else would a Dad say..." but he really is a nice sweet guy and not nearly as selfish as a lot of kids these days. He doesn't display the sense of entitlement that not only children now display, but adults as well. the car was my idea to do with him and he obviously is and has been excited but if I told him I was using the money to fix the Snake....he would be fine with it and tell me he understands. didn't bother to ask him.....I already know what he would say and I would not go back on my word.

WooHoo!

Time to drag out the 442 advertisements from days of yore and see if there isn't a custom paint job that would echo something the General did back in the day. You know, a fitting tribute to the old muscle car and yet tasteful.

it's here!!!!!!!!! came today about 10:30am. It seems to have a fuel leak and it may need a fuel pump or carb rebuild as it won't stay running. acts like it is running out of fuel. need to check around for the best stuff to throw in the tank to clean it and I am sure it has really old gas in it. put some in, but hard with the gas can I have and the fill is behind the license plate in the back bumper so can't get much of a downward angle on it to put the gas in.

interior is in suprising good shape; headliner is perfect, dash pad is near perfect, has a/c but not hooked up. I was wrong in the mileage...only has 59K on it!!!!!!

seller included the used a arm, the driver's side. it is really bad.

anyway on to the pics:


as it arrived on the semi:





off of the ramps and semi:



back to the house:













my son in the driver's seat for the first time.




He had and has no clue how to do anything, even had a hard time opening the doors (you have to push the button in, he was just yanking on the door handle!!!) very large learning curve coming ahead.
