Default 1966 Sprint Remodel

It hasn't been started since the 80's as far as I can tell. But it fired up and sounds pretty good, for the little time I ran it.

I am redoing the cooling system and the metal tube that connects the heater hose to the water pump is rusted through so I fashioned a piece out of copper tubing to replace it. Has anyone else done anything along these lines to replace this piece?

I'm sure it will be fine but I don't even remember a metal piece being there on my 200 or the one my grandfather has. I'm a little rusty though so I can't remember exactly what it looked like right there at the water pump.

Probably only has the tube with AC. Could even be an aftermarket AC and Tube, I'm from the Northeast, so nothing we had back then had AC so I don't remember.

Would make sense, both 200s I've dealt with did not have AC.

I've been told it's not a Sprint. Although it has the chrome air cleaner and everything else it also has the side vent trim and no emergency flashers. So I guess someone added the chrome air cleaner. I also refinished the the console.

Makes sense, the sprints didn't come with quarter panel trim or the tri-bar emblems on the fenders.

Your restoration work is looking good. Seeing factory original pieces like that brought back to life makes my pecker harder than Chinese arithmetic.

Default 66 Remodel Pulled the seats and carpet

Quite a mess. Floors are in bad shape. But on the good side I found 13 cents. Seat risers don't look too bad but will probably be replaced
Passenger side rear has sheet metal screwed over a big hole. Then the bondoed the seams. What a mess
I need to bust out the shop vac and clear all of this debris
