Hello All,
New to the forum as of today. I now have a 66 convertible with a stock 289 and C4. Mostly in good shape... bought it from my father and will be a part two of a 65 convertible that we built almost 25 years ago. I will be swapping out the 302 that we built that many years ago in. I will leave that in and play for a while.

The "update" list, aside from the other things that are found along the way.
-swap in built 302 running 10 :1 compression and real nasty cam
-building up C4 to handle the new engine
-update suspension
-power steering
-converting to EFI
-update brakes all four corners
-general appearance updates both body and interior
-eventually building a 347 with a dart block and adding a procharger

I will be leveraging this forum heavily to avoid as many pitfalls as I can

Start a build thread in the classic section and ask questions! Is it the original 289? I have a 65 that I'm working on with a period correct 289. I plan to stay 289 just for the originality of it.

Nope. It will go away. I don't need to store another engine. I already have one on a stand and another C4 tranny.

Can you still call a transmission a tranny?
