I'm going to try to continue this topic because I stopped along the way, like many things I do, and it's not cool for me, nor for you.
Well, I rebuilt the gearbox with a kit, the rear axle bearings have been changed, they were making a terrible noise. I adjusted the carburetion and the ignition, mechanically it's ok. The engine, which is a Windsor, is stamped 1976, it's a pity but I couldn't find the original block.
At the moment, the car is at the body shop, I knew that there would be some work to do, but I was far from thinking that the damage was so important. The bodywork has been chewed, with up to 1 cm of thickness in some places. And you can guess why when you look at the pictures. In some places, some pieces of sheet metal have been welded over the body instead of being straightened.
On the video, it's my car that was racing on the street, this car was bludgeoned, and now it's bludgeoning my wallet.
More on this next episode when I visit the body shop to see the progress.
