I see shock tower and shock tower brace talked about here, but isn't that actually the coil spring cover that is rusted through? Mine aren't great either but it looks like it just bolts to the shock tower and won't be too bad to replace. If I'm wrong don't jump all over me. I've only had my 65 a couple of months and am still learning the parts.
honeygoldcoupe - unfortunately the whole thing is rusted out. the extensions under the frame and such are rusted to hell that's why i'm replacing from the firewall forward
65raven65 / hity645 - i'm not sure on how to check the interior color, all i can say is it looks pretty off white or so to me with a black dash pad and black on the dash trim. the original car color i believe was Dark Moss Green. as it's still prevelant in the engine bay and where the rocker panels were. i'll take some pictures tomorrow of the interior and such and post em up.
I see what you mean. I copied the picture to Photoshop and lightened it up some. How did the inside of the engine bay look? Were there holes or visable rust there? Mine looks clean and black without any patches but underneath I can see the coil spring covers are gone and under the front valance the turn signal housings. The floor pans and gas tanklooks fine from underneath on mine. I have not pulled the carpets but I did lift the trunk mat and it is clean there too. It is an Illinois/Indiana car but was always garaged or under a car cover and hadn't really left the garage much since 1980, so I am hopeful the cowl didn't get all crapped up. I am debating about pulling off the front fenders...is that much of a job?
andrewmp6 - no i'm not from kentucky, the car is - i live in florida though.
390bigblock1 - no idea - the whole back plate was flat black when i bought the car in its original color.
honeygoldcoupe - not sure if it's that big of a job. my father who is helping me is also making me buy the new top support .. the 2 / \ that attatch to the shock towers in one piece to help line everything up. just taking off the whole front suspension (which isn't much) and cutting everything exact - just takes some time apparently. - hope to have it done within a week though
well heres the interior - it looks parchment? i don't know. looks white to me to be honest. why hello there mr rust monster.[:'(]
i took the carpet out, the only place that wasn't replaced was on this side in the front. i'm going to cut it out and replace the panel up to the firewall. that's the only spot that's bad bad bad. everything else was replaced. whoever did it before used rivets which is dumb. i'm cleaning it all and welding it up as well as using the original sealant on it. same with the splash guards under the fenders, i'm re-primering them and sealing them up again. pick up the aprons and stuff this weekend.
oh btw how the HELL do you get the dash pad off? that thing is stuck on there, i can only get the sides up, i need to get in there to get the gauges and other dash pieces off so i can repaint the dash and replace those pieces - and the dash pad.
Your car looks great!, who did the paint?
I am in Sanford, just across the St John's river. I was in the junk yard off 17-92 on Wed. There was a '66, a '67 and a'68 in the yard. All in rough condition. There may be parts you can use. There was also a '67 Cougar.
