Hi, new to the forum want to say thanks for having this and letting me be a part of it, also I have a 1968 gto that I am going to restore. This car was driven the hell out of by the previous owner and motor blown up, he had the engine rebuilt with all beefy competition cam parts, then let the car sit ever since.
The drivetrain/steering is all there, but there is nothing on the front of the block (pumps, pulleys, fan, etc.)
SORRY GUYS PICTURES COMING SOON I PROMISE*
The car needs some body work done but for the year its actually pretty solid, my father owns a bodyshop doing these types of restorations so I have the tools for the job, just fighting with him for the space (its been shunned to the backyard of the shop).
So far, I just bought all the keys for the car (ignition, doors, and trunk) just so I have them all and when I finally go to start the engine I can have the right key for ignition.
I also bought a water pump. When I bought the pump I realized that I dont have any mounting brackets or hardware for anything on the front of this engine. I need all that stuff! But I don't know what I need.
In this restoration I plan to get the motor to run, and at least get the car to put around the shop and yard, just to be able to get in and out of my dads way. This is the only way.
I plan on getting the rest of the parts for the front of the engine and try to start this old baby, and every second of every day I dream of this moment LOL
All interest, tips, questions, inspiration, help, anything welcome! I grew up into this lifestyle but most of my friends dont care anything about cars, so hope to get alot of good juicy info here and meet alot of owners of this awesome car.
