Good morning all, This will be my build thread for tracking the rolling restoration of "Lucy", my '67 GS. I've had the car for about two years now and had been driving her regularly while also replacing//upgrading her along the way. I've gotten so far as to swap in Wilwood discs on all four corners, all new wiring harness and electrical components, and an M23 Muncie w/Gearvendors Overdrive. Unfortunately, after driving the car a few thousand miles, the head gasket has started to fail on the 1970 455 right between the #4 and #6 cylinders. So back in September, I tore it down, and put in a new gasket (with the help and wisdom of several people on this board). When I got the motor apart I could see that the deck surfaces had been scorched. So once I put it all back together, she started right up and ran better, but was still down on power, and still smoking from the exhaust... I needed a rebuild. So, in recent months, I have coordinated with Jim Weisse and sent him the deposit for a 482ci roller with a Stage 2 top end. Jim tells me the motor should be assembled sometime around May. But in the meantime, I'll be cleaning, updating, and upgrading the front half of the car. So here's what's on the agenda: -Engine Swap -Power steering pump rebuild -Steering Box rebuild w/quick ratio upgrade -Media blast & repaint the engine bay -Front bumper straightened & rechromed (already complete) -Stage 2 headers & 3" exhaust I'm doing almost all of the disassembly myself, and some of the installation. But I'll be having a local restoration shop do a fair amount of the final assembly. I'll have A LOT of questions for you all since I'm a very novice mechanic. Here are some pics from before I started the tear down: *That handsome stud in the last picture is my father posing with his own '67 GS back in the early-mid 70's.. which was my inspiration to find this particular car.
