  1. Hey all, new to the forum and excited about this community. I'm definitely a novice, but I have some experienced friends. I am getting an I6 65 auto for $300. It runs, has no brakes, has all the chrome, interior is all there, some rust on the back body panels, I'll put pictures up when I trailer it here. I'm going to put a v8 in it because it was so cheap to get. Thinking of doing the 302 with a newer stick and I've heard that the fox bodies make good donors. Just looking for some insight, things to look for, just anything 65 specific that I need to be aware of. I'll keep updating as I dive further into the project.
