OK, here are a couple of pictures of my Sedan delivery. It is a pretty good base to start with, a little rust to take car of but all in all a good runner.
I will get some of the Ranchero next week. Let me know what you think. Thanks Steve H.:shift:

Size was only 240x680 ??? Maybe too small?? I will try again with some new pics tomorrow...:confused:

They would not be too small. What is the error message if any? What are you trying to do and how are you doing it?

When I try to upload the pics, it would say upload attempt failed? It just wouldn't let me attach them to my post? I will take some new pics tonight and see if I can get them up here tomorrow. Thanks for the help.

Lookin good. Bet everyone is looking at this car with different ideas of future pictures in mind. A lot see a reliable daily driver or a total restore looking fantastic. Then the nuts like me see a tubbed beauty with huge tires in the back, small ones in the front and a big blower sticking out of the hood. :3g: Nice car. Larry

I have gone through the same thoughts as well. First was a fuel injected 302 w/ AOD trans. The the full out 347 stroke with NO2? Now I am thinking stock??? Tomorrow who knows. The good part is I have a 63 Ranchero that I am starting on as well. So maybe 1 Hot Rod, and 1 Driver??
Maybe I should start a survey?? Thanks Steve[AGREE]

How 'bout a M2 front suspension to make room for this:

Very cool Steve. How about a big block Chevy! :ROTFLMAO:

But in all seriousness, I say go totally sleeper with it. But give it all the best suspension, handling, and brakes. Turbo-charged inline 6! Now that would be cool.... and fast enough to scare anyone in the passenger seat.

I actually found it on Craig's list for sale in Bremerton. I got the car and a ton of engine parts along with a spare tailgate, and some NOS parts he had for $2500. She had a few rust issues to deal with but I have been looking for a delivery for about 15 years. Just couldn't afford those restored ones I kept seeing.
About a week earlier I came across a 63 Ranchero I picked up from a Lady that was fixing it for her son, and the son didn't like it, Sooo I snatched that one up for $600. It needs floors, and a tranny (solved that one) but has good paint new brakes and new wheels and tires on it. I'll get pics of that one next week.
Anyway I hope to make it over to one of your meetings soon with one of the rigs. I'll keep you all posted on the progress. Thanks Steve [thumb]

That car has been around here(Kitsap County) for ever! It was in Port Orchard for many years. Id talk to the guy at the A&W car shows every now and then. I almost bought it 6-7 years ago, but decided against it. I want a 63 2dr wagon, but not really into a sedan delivery. Good score tho!

Yes i bought it from the guy in Port Orchard. It is a little rougher than first expected but I wanted a project. I will have her stripped down in the next week or so and I will put up some pics of the progress. Got some rust repair to do but other than that it is all original and fairly solid.

Looks like you're going about it the right way there, Steve. Hope as you did deeper you don't find any surprises Keep posting pictures as you go -- you can never show too much.
