Default 66 Chevelle LS7/TKO600 Supercharged Warhawk. Speedtech kit on order!

Well hello!
Decided to register at your fine page and show what Im building to get some help with issues that may occur.

I have been building a Pro Street 63 Impala for several years, but a couple of years ago I decided a want a cruiser car so I found a 66 chevelle from you guys and shipped it to Sweden.



Drove it over the summer 2014 when I got it home and registered it over here. Found some small issues I wanted to fix, the heater was broke.
We have cold summers over here.

it had a stock newer 454 and TH400 in it, that ran very nice but more power is always nice. The plan from the start was to swap cam and intake and run Holley EFI on it but all hell broke loose

Thanks guys!

Moved it to our club garage and started looking for rust as I had a bad leak from the windshield.



Removed interior, frontclip and windshield and put the grinder down.
POOF, bondo everywhere!





Maybe this should be moved to projects?
Any admin who can help me?

No. He wanted to know if you'd go to Sweden and fix the rot.

Beautiful car! I'm gonna build a 66' one day. Hate that you found a mess under that paint. Unfortunately this happens all too often. Did you also notice that the engine was in the car backwards? Kidding!

Nice to see you sharing here, especially with a '66 Chevelle! It's a sad thing to find all that body cancer under nice paint. Mine wasn't quite that bad, but I had to replace both lower and upper corners of the windshield, too, as well as the filler panel at the back window. Please keep us posted on your updates.

Thank you guys!
Yeah, that rost sucked bigtime especially when I bought the car from a dealer in the States with a supposedly good reputation.
if only they could have mentioned the windshield leak.
I dont think they were the ones doing the crappy fix, but hell water poured in everywhere.









Fixed all of the rust plus welded some holes shut in the firewall.

It was about this time Idecided to go LS and TKO600 and started looking for parts here in Sweden.
It takes about 2-3 months to ship parts from you via boat, and airfreight is a bit pricey for such big stuff
