 I thought i was looking at my old VG when i first read this thread! I sold it to a guy down in gore before i moved to Melbourne in 2006 but you have had your one a lot longer obviously.

Mine had a 360, it went pretty hard.

Hopefully all that rust doesn't put you off too much,  you should see the 68 impala im currently restoring...

Good work man!

I'm starting to think the bill for this is going to be a rude shock. But given market value when it's all done Vs what it owes me to date it's not really that big a deal.

Mine or Josh? 

If it's poxy spray a bit of blackguard/rust converter around in there? Then maybe cavity wax or don't leave your car out in the weather for years on end?

Actually I once had a leaky oil pressure gauge which dripped down into the chassis quite well because it soaked through the wooden floor.

 

 

I recommend cleaning it out as best you can. Rust converter, Then a zinc layer, then cover what you can with something like por15, then cavity wax

Morris ankor wax is rated, can also run it on crusty paint to protect patina
