I wanted to take the time to thank the many people on this forum for the help and information. I bought a 66 GTO 2 years ago in Detroit and brought it home to Texas. I knew it would be some work but did not expect it to be a complete frame off resto. The bottom floor board to trunk was replaced due to rust..This is the result as off last week.
I took it out for a drive today and it was pretty smooth except when I hit a medium dip at 30 mph. The front almost bottomed out and bounced back, which caught me by surprise. That suspension is pretty soft, even with new shocks all the way around. I was thinking to solve that problem, I need to change the shocks and springs to coil overs. what are your thoughts about it.
here are some pics of the finished car.
Also, I have headers on this car. The headers are barely clearing the steering shaft. it bumps the steering coupling. is there an aftermarket steering coupling that is just a little smaller in diameter out there?
