    Coor DON'T want much

    Car will hopefully look fairly original, only obvious stuff might be the fibreglass hood, and once open the engine ( although looking at it you wouldn't know as they are exactly the same size), I'm going to have the radio overhauled and converted to work with an MP3 or CD but all the wiring will be hidden.
    The pic's from the strip are from the Allstar nationals way back in August 2003 best run was 16.750 83.64MPH, this was with the original (well worn) 326ci engine and 2 speed auto.
    The 455 is a 70 YC block found in 455 GTOs. The box is stock 2 speed auto.

    Engine swap turned into a full rebuild, so I have the new rearend in the car, new front end abotu to go in. Suspect the motor will get an inspection and lookover before it goes in, having been stood, so haven't run it yet! Got a spare 455 motor just in case!!

    Hi Pixie,

    I've done a few bits towards getting the engine running, but have been busy most weekends and having been layed off I've not got much spending money

    The Le Mans has always been a tough looking car and despite all the repair work needed, this is no exception.Look forward to seeing some more images as you get the opportunity to work on her.
    Good Luck with the search for a new job.

    Cool

    OK Car fans. BIG news........








    She's Alive.....



    Fuel and battery are rigged up, BUT who cares. This is the first time that the engine has been run in at least 5 years, I've had it 4 years and was told it had been standing for a year before I bought it.
    I have a couple of oil leaks off the rocker covers to sort and a few minor tweeks to do but I am SO glad that it's running.
