Well since we added a new member to our family about 6 months ago me and the wife (stichbitch) both knew we needed to get going on our "family" car, our two other daily driven old cars (34 p/u and 65 camino) only have 2 seats, so we needed one with a back seat, my wife bought this 59 olds 98 from a freind a few years back and its just been sitting in the driveway waiting for us to get on it, well the time was finally here. My freind Ryan (guyontheHAMB) was gonna be in the area for the holidays and was wondering if we had any projects we were working on that we wanted any help with, i said no but we could start one, so the night before my freind Terry was over and we had the fun task of digging it out of the snow and getting it in the garage, we did that but had to let all the snow melt off before we could get going on it. So it was time to start on it. when we got the car the motor was long gone, i had first ideas of running a newer olds motor like a 403 or something but the SBC prevailed, im sure alot of you wont like it but its what it is, this car is going to be daily driven and i want it super dependable for my wife to drive around, so behind the sbc i put a th350 trans. so we threw a mock up block and tranny in and fabbed up some motor and trans mount, i positioned it so i could use the stock driveshaft with out shortening it, the engine bays are huge on these things so it was easy.
