My poor long neglected 66 Coupe

This is our long neglected 66 Coupe we purchased at a car show in 1998.  It was a father and son high school project, or I guess, it was supposed to be.  Once we got it home, almost everything that was supposed to be new was not or improperly installed.  This includes brake shoes (all primary on one side and secondary on the other), ball joints not properly installed, alternator mis-wired resulting in an underhood fire, u-joints, shocks, and 4 different tires on 3 different width rims.  Somewhere down the road someone tried to do a cowl patch and drilled a bunch of 1/2" holes and put metal plates over the holes, then bondo on top of that.
Some basics on the car.  Built in San Jose, it is a 289 C-code that has had the Edelbrock Street Performer intake and cam kit and at one time had the Edelbrock 4bbl carb (now a Holley Demon).  It is backed by a Green Dot C-4.
Since we got it, a pecan tree drop a nice limb on the hood and roof which prompted me to do the long term repairs.
So far, I have the Mustang Plus Grab-A-Track suspension, springs, shocks, and Scarebird brakes.  I'm still sorting out the hydraulics.
Plans are to get it back on the street soon (!) and upgrade the interior.
For some reason, this is all TinyPic would allow.  It uploaded multiple images then quit.

Re: My poor long neglected 66 Coupe

Thanks for the info.

Is it possible that OLED will be able to correct this shortcoming, or that a new TV tech will get it right?
