Title: Attention AzBlackHemi
Post by: Steve on October 25, 2010, 05:31:00 PM
OK Brian
 
You looking for a project?
 
I need you to look at the few pictures there are and tell me if you would like to do it.  It's mostly assembly now, but does need some etailing and a repaint.  The engine has the wrong oil pan, but is done and needs to be finished assembled.  There is a ton on detailing, but we are pretty sure we have everything but maybe the interior screws.
 
Let me know. 
 
I am on line with this so these guys see a proceedure.
 
As far as delivery, maybe we can meet somewhere and transfer

Why? You can do a full blown resto from a thousand pieces, right?

Bout time! (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)  I was beginning to think you were afraid of what I had.  I mean Stan is so descriptive of the ACTUAL conditions. . . .
 
OK  Here goes.
 
The body work is completed and the initial painting is done.  The frame, and suspension and brakes are done.  Brake Plumbing needs to be completed in the front.  (Converted to 4 wheel disc's) The frame needs to be re detailed and the strut rod bushings need replacement again.  (PST JUNK!  SNOTTY!!!!!!)
 
The Engine is rebuilt, painted.  Needs painted again.  Trans has been done.  Needs a torque converter.  I need an oil pan, WIP.  Torque converter can be a used one I think.
 
The car was media blasted
 
It basically needs the front inners painted, reinstalled and all the front body parts assembled/aligned.  The engine needs to be completed, installed, exhaust, rebuilt the ball and trunnion (Have the kit) U Joint, and connections. Rebuild the carbs,  Dash is painted, needs reassembly.  Glass is out, every piece of the interior is disassembled.  AC is all there, new hoses.  Condenser needs to be combed out.  Needs belts and hoses.
 
I would say it would take me a month to assemble the inside of the car, probably about the same for the rest, including painting the final finish.
 
So the project needs allot of detailing, and assembly.  It would be delivered in a basket.  But it is rolling.  All the heavy work is done.
 
Oh  Since they didn't do a frame off or a rotis job, there are areas where the rust proofing needs to be scraped and reapplied.  Finished, including outside labor is probably 120 hours.  + incidentals.
 
If parts are needed, it's because they got lost.  But as far as I know, except for fresh interior screws, Upholstery and the oil pan, there is nothing major needed.
 
Nutshell

At the risk of sounding clueless please clarify this for me Steve. Roger seems to think you want to sell the car to me and Stan thinks you want me to finish it up for you. Who's right?

I buy & sell cars so much I guess I automatically assume that, but
a contracted-out resto makes a whole lot of sense too, for the
time-challenged.  Me, I got time but no $$.

Stan wins the cigar.  You can buy it if you want too though.  But you won't pay the price.  LOL

I don't have either.  But when Chris and I get to the nitty gritty, I guess  I can decide then.  Fortunately for Chris and me, there isn't a whole pile of parts and materials that need tom be bought.  The interior is the worst case, which I need to spring for.  This is mostly labor right now

That car has incredible potential... the pic of that white car is fixated in my brain right now.

Although Chris does great work, maybe this isn't a good idea.....

Steve puts more miles on his cars when the wheels aren't touching the ground.....

[/QUOTE] I think Bob might be right here. As much as I would love to help you out Steve just the transport expense would probably break the bank and leave little funds left for the restoration. I would have to contract out the upholstery work unless you'd be happy with milk crates for seats. LOL. If you were closer it would be a no brainer but 2500 miles is not close.

You guys are forgetting what this car is.  This is a letter car and deserves the best I can afford..  I'm not worried about the 5000 miles,   I'm worried about who works on it.  After all this time with the car, I want it done right. I, unfortunately, don't have a place to do the job properly.
 
Bob. . .  Milk crates will be in order while you do the seats.  I'll have the door panels made.  I could do all the other stuff, but not as well without a garage.

Well thank you Steve. If the distance doesn't bother you we'll see if we can work something out. I'm getting ready to leave in an hour for Fall Fling in Ca. so I won't be on here untill Sunday night. Just letting you know so you don't think I'm ignoring you.

Steve - the guy that is bringing my 56 Olds from Phoenix in 2 weeks may
be able to cut you a good deal in order to avoid dead-heading back to
Phoenix, last I knew he didn't have a return load. He's a great
transporter, he brought my Packard from Oklahoma and does a lot of work
for John "Big M" Fowlie, one car at a time... he's as good as they get
and very reasonable. PM me if interested.

Thanks Roj
 
But I will transport it myself.  It's a good excuse for me to meet Chris anyway.
 
Funny. . . I know all these guys thousands of miles away, but you and I haven't met yet.  I haven't been to Willet since early spring either

Well, let me know when you get to your place here in upcountry NY or
enroute to Lea's and we'll rectify that...  and I'll make sure to
wear my blue shirt!



If you do decide time is too short to do NJ-AZ-NJ, I think Leo would do it for under 1K.

No.  Those were Moog and were bought new from Oildale Auto Parts.  But Steve, that was over ten years ago.  How long did the car sit outside with no front sheet metal?
