A little more progress. Hope to show everyone an assembled chassis with the engine and transmission installed by the end of the month.

Just gathering parts for the 69'. Decided to go a different route with it, pure stock L48 4 speed. (Gotta have that third pedal.) :mrgreen:

Shuffled some things around, moved the frame into the garage, and did some assembly earlier today.

Went over and helped the old man do some patching on the floors this morning. (Under the rear seat had some buckshot)

Haven't really been doing much of anything on the cars for awhile... holidays, busy at work, upgraded the engine/transmission in my truck, etc.

Got the body back on the frame today... had a day off, and it was nearly 80 degrees out.
