guys, this is my first pontiac and first old muscle car. I just bought a 67 lemans coupe (post) that appears to be in OK shape. it was kind of a barn find, guy that started on it (fresh 350 pontiac and 350 tranny) unfortunately it was owned by someone who wanted to make it a redneck show car...they failed. I will include a link to my streetfire pictures. first off, I'm new to carb's and pontiac motors, let alone old muscle cars.
I own a 684 RWHP 03 cobra that I have spared no expense on. so i'm not looking for major power or anything. I've been browsing the yearone group.
the motor has never been turned, in fact the plugs are still painted.
I have more photo's since I pulled all the interior out and cleaned out the inside a bit. there is some rust on the floor boards and some very very small pinholes....but I believe I can cut the sheet metal out and weld in a plate. it has drums all around, I intend to replace that with a power disc front brake kit from year one by SSBC. should help it stop before she is even running. I have also gotten a wiring harness from painless performance.
let me say that this car will not be returned to factory, there was alot of damage done to factory components like the factory gauges, center console, and all of the interior was changed. although the interior did clean up really nicely, the red and black looks retarded to me. the car used to be blue. the car will need some paint although for the most part minus the hood being dinged and needing to replace the front end, everything appears to be in good order body wise. some very very minor surface rust behind the drivers side rear tire, but nothing a good sandblaster and a good paint job won't take care of.
I would like your opinions and what I should do first etc. let me say I have no idea what carb is on it, or what fuel pump to put on this 350 (vacuum) the fuel lines are no longer present so I will need to run new ones for that.
I'm wondering what I need to pay attention to while going through getting her back to a driveable condition.
i will be doing an autometer gauge package because I've got all of those laying around, and a hurst shifter for the T350. I'm wanting to do something else about the front seats, maybe a set of corbeau or something to that effect. would appreciate any help you guys would be willing to give me. or advice even. the only things I'm really set on at this point are the power discs, the gauge panel, and the hurst shifter...otherwise I have little to no idea where to begin. I am a good ford guy, built many stangs, but never a classic. I have a shop, so I usually have any tools needed to do the job.
also, I have been deployed for the last 3 1/2 years straight now. so I've got some cash to burn. but I'm still in the sandbox. should be home in 2 months. the car only had 60k miles on it when the gauges were removed.
Thanks for any help you guys can be.
also, what other sources are there than the year one group and my summit racing catalog?
