Nice work. That one didn't look to bad before you polished it up. Of course I was just seeing a picture of the outside no clue how much rust or other problems you had to deal with. Did you consider painting the top white like the original? I am sure the solid color gives it a smoother faster look. The wheels are the same as the ones that were on my 1970 Monte Carlo. Were those also original in 1965? Not that it matters as that was always a nice dressed up Chevy factory rim.
Body didn't have much rust at all. But shortly after the before pic was taken a lady dented in the passenger rear qtr panel! That stalled the repaint by nearly a year while trying to find another panel and the other parts. The top was actually gray primer in the before pic. The original factory color was that ugly maroon Chevy had in 65. It had been previously repainted blue and light blue two tone. I considered a silver top and upper rear quarter panels, but finally settled on the darker blue with plenty of metal flake. Engine is a 350 with 4 bolt main out of a 74 vette, 4 barrel Holly carb and a Turbo 400 tranny. The wheels are not the originals that came on it but are original Chevy Rally Wheels.
Thanks guys. Unfortunately those last few tweaks got bigger and bigger! Electrical this time. Fixing items messed up when putting the fenders and chrome back on and some other old wiring issues that had been fermenting. Fix one thing and something else goes haywire. After two weekends of tracing circuits, running wiring and laying with my head by the accelerator pedal for hours, the finish line still seems a long way off. Got so stiff under there I had to have my son pull me out of the passenger side by my ankles! But if I get that done, a new headliner and a/c compressor, that should be it! I'm to the stage now that I just want it over!
