Re: 65 chevy restoration

I drove the donor truck today to try out the engine and it ran great with a lot of power.It has great oil pressure and no smoke. I am going to start pulling it maybe tomorrow.

Re: 65 chevy restoration

The paint is some I picked up at the parts store used for tractors and tractor parts like blades and bushogs. It is very sticky and covers well and is very durable.

Re: 65 chevy restoration

No pictures yet but I do have the engine cleaned up and ready for paint and am planning on working on the bell housing and transmission tomorrow. Once painted I will install them in the truck and get some pictures.
