At the risk of wearing you out............I got burned out on the entire old car scene around here. Go, park, sit 4-6 hours and cry when someone else wins the trophy. (I'm not interested in a trophy but when your vintage bike gets beat out by a brand new Can Am the scene is all played out). So, I was going to sell my Pontiac.....but then I came back here and saw 55 Chieftan's build thread and got the itch to go another way. If it's no fun to park at least it should be fun to drive. (love the thread btw). I don't think I want to go that far but.......I have a 64 389 tri power readily available to me and a 4 speed. I also have (I hope) pedals and most everything else but smaller bits. The car as it now sits. I stripped the interior to re-do it and that will still be done. The drivetrain came out of this car. Not original to this car but important to note. The drivetrain from what I can tell (and this is where the questions start) I believe is out of a 1964 Catalina. I was told that headers were not made for this particular engine. True? The Bonneville used to run on the track not far from here years ago. It comes with tri power (Edelbrock). I get all carbs but it was run with solid linkage. (all carbs operated at once). I'm assuming progressive linkage can be bought? (I have no desire to try and make some). (intake was plugged) 4 speed. The pedals out of the Bonneville........anyone know of problems putting them in the 56? I don't have the garage space to do this. My buddy does BUT it's his livelyhood. I plan on using his space, his tools, etc so I do plan on providing him some $$$$$ so I would like to have my ducks in a row. (He wants the Bonneville body as partial $$$$) Any pitfalls or things I should get before starting? I thought about full gasser but I'm not going to do it. The car is far from perfect but it is a fairly solid California car. I'm not going to cut it up. The suspension needs re-done though so it will sit nose high.
