Cul8r's '71 Chevelle


Recommended Posts

So the car was originally a Malibu - SBC 10 Bolt & Th350 Auto. Built in Kansas City Missouri 

Now it has a Rebuilt 402 BBC, 12 Bolt Diff with 3:73 Gears.

New Fuel tank & Carter Electric pump, New Boot Lid. New Floor Pan & Boot floor, and rear quarters - all will need some fettling to get up to NZ compliance standard.

I have inner fenders waiting at Kiwi Shipping - with a ever growing pile of parts..

No lockdown skids Im afraid. Need to fit new body mounts so the trans clears the tunnel (and then I can fit the shifter)

I got a set airfreighted over but left them at work on the day lockdown was announced

Yea got the mounts in - wasn't anywhere near as scary as I suspected, didn't solve my shifter problem. 

It was missing 4 of the Mid Mounts. One front body mount is rusted away - which I knew about and needs to be fixed for repair cert.

Im guessing its actually a repro stamping issue. Have some bucket seat floor brackets that should've left on Monday after being out of stock for a couple months, so once those arrive I can weld them in and then be able to re-fit the seats.
