Well, long story short, between hauling the dog around, and going on parts runs for the Buick project, the little lady and I decided we needed something other than a little '80s BMW for the daily grind. So we picked this up from a local HAMB'er... Its reasonably solid, but has a few minor (hopefully) issues. The 250 Strait-6 overheats in stop-n-go and as far as I can figure the vacum choke is tits-up. I'm gonna rebuild the carb as a matter of course and see what, if any, thermostat is in there. The Power-chunk trany acts like they all do, good but it lets you know when it shifts. On its maiden-voyage, it did make it 95 miles with only one break-down (overheat). The font end has a lot of on-center slop, but I got a front end rebuild kit with the car. Plans for now are... Get it running like it should... Get it driving where I point the wheel... and fixing all those little nit-picky things around the car. Eventually, the plan is for a mild early-60s custom parts hauler. I'm not fond of the metal-flake paint that's on the car, so that's going in favor of a respray in the stock blue, with scallops, after a shave and deck. I'm thinking of a few ideas for a custom grill, and the a decision on the interior is still out in committee. Regardless, with a little effort, it should be a good 'round town daily.
