hi all,back again


Well after taking a break on building the 49 Pontiac for most of the fall and winter mostly due to life just getting too busy,i'm finally back on the build.I am just bending up the last of the fuel lines and hooking up some last wires and I think I am almost ready to see if the old 239 will fire up.Hopefully that will give me the kick in the pants to get it back on the road again.Still lots to do but spent the last few days going through boxes of old and new parts(I think I bought the entire ecklers catalogue)I am trying to dedicate 2-3 hours every night to the car and some days are better than others.Remember I did not take this car apart.it was partially disassembled when I bought it and then I took it further apart for the paint and motor repaint.So putting it back together has been a bit of an adventure,Anyways a few pics of some pieces I would like to find better of if anyone knows where a guy could find one,mainly the lower grill piece and the left hand side grill bar.A few more pics of the paint,i am still buffing it out,etc,etc

Sometimes taking a step back can keep you from getting burned out on a project. Or sometimes other priorities keep you from it. Now you are re-energized and chomping at the bit. I like the colour, and the 239 looks good as well.

the color is called whiltshire maroon and is the original color of the car.I had to have it custom mixed because no one besides auto color library out of California has the formula any more.It is actually an industrial enamel but polishes up decent with a lot of work.Heres what I started with,i'll get some more photos when the rain stops.

ok some more progress and some more questions.I'm not sure if anyone here owns one of these 49's if so I could really use some underhood pics.I've got most things figured out and having the 54 to compare has helped but a lot is also diffwrent.Need to figure out the vacuum lines for the wipers as on the 49 it is inside the car and a rubber hose sticks out through the firewall.Attached with a steel line of some sort down to the exhaust manifold.Also a few pics of the hood latch and how the cable runs into the car.I have a few mystery pieces to figure out as well.
