    update for the past few days...
    got all new ignition parts, cooling system, radiator, hoses, etc. did a quicky spray paint on the engine and accessories. added some gauges to keep an eye on the vitals.

    ripped out the old faded carpet. at some point they did a fiberglass repair on the floor where it had started to rust a little, so i cut that out and replaced it proper. seem sealed and did a bed liner treatment to the floor boards. installed a new trim parts carpet kit and seat belts for the kiddios.

    quick update...
    made the trip down to austin for the 13th annual lone star round up week.
    car ran get, got around 14 mpg and only experience an exhaust leak, ill take that.
    ran out to springfield yesterday and picked up a new sheet metal break, the hot rod hundred was happening also, so we high tailed it and ran up to stockland lake with them and peeled off about half way through the run, nice 300 mile day.

  9. The wagoon looked so cool, cruising towards the American Legion Hall, as we were rolling out. Wishing I had a chance to admire it up close and personal, but I got tied up during the stop at Stockton lake. Figgered I'd catch ya at the park, when I saw you guys blast off back to Joplin. Laughed and honked the horn, as we rolled past Subway, in Greenfield, and I saw the wagoon sitting there in the parking lot.

    Thanks for coming over and spending some time on the run and for the kind words regarding it. Looking forward to catching up with you one of these days!

    Ryno, as you know, I'm putting a '63 BelAir wagon together & have asked your advice before, so here goes another question: what is the dimension from top of frame (or bottom of square tubing), to front upper shock mount that you fabbed? I bought the shocks ('63 Chevy truck) & mounts, but would like to know the height of that upper mount. Thanks in advance, & thanks for the advice already given!

    I love the look of your car. '64 Biscayne wagons are a cool way to ride.

    i will have to double check for you, but i think its was about 4" from the bottom of the square tube to the center line of the shock stud, and i use 33033 front shock # from oreillys.

    sorry man i didn't see this, but i did just replace all the rear bushings and new adjustable pan hard bar.
    i also went ahead and boxed in the stock trailing arms, really stiffed the rear end up.
    2600 pd bag, removed the stock spring saddle, weld on new lower bag mount, i used a 5" pipe and matched the top angle cut ( i believe it was about 12 degrees) to fit the stock upper pocket, depending on your desired air out height adjust the height of the top cup. move the emergency brake forward 2 " for more clearance.
