This is why so many people change their front brakes to disc. Not that discs are better, just easier to have even braking. Drum brakes just take some patience. You say the shoes looked okay so I am...

The radiator will match the year of the car. Just make sure you have the right water pump for either engine. Upper and lower hoses will be on the passenger side on a 65,66 and a 68.

Your description is kinda... well... vague. If the engine runs open the hood and see where the noise is coming from and for future reference pull over when the temp gauge pins. You really need to...

No Spring straight into Summer as always around here. You will have a very clean car when it's finally done. You have taken your time and done things the right way.

I would say $4500 is a good deal. A car like that on the east coast has a asking price of 9-10k. I would love to have that opportunity. Good luck and keep us posted.
