RE: 66 Canso V8 2 Door hardtop.


Found a hood catch in crawl space (hood side),will look for the rest soon. Ran into a problem down there. Either have an artesian well down there or a leaking hot water tank!furious Wasn't leaking a week ago! Hows 10 bucks to CP and shipping cost? Can PM me your address. Jim

Glad you had the catch Jim because it looks like I only have the body side of the latch. I must not have had the hood side.

Chateau Slate was probably available all year on all models built in Oshawa. It seems to be the way they worked, pooling resources. That is why extra colours were available in Canada.

I have seen only one 1966 Oshawa-built Chevy II / Acadian that was factory sprayed Chateau Slate. It was a really nice 1966 Nova SS coupe, Chateau Slate with black vinyl roof, black buckets, no console (3-in-the-tree), 283 (!), little old lady western car.

Al T, that Acadian of yours looks really nice. When it was built it had an interesting colour combo, is a V8 (big plus), but was utterly stripped except for the Powerglide and the nice 1-year-only Deluxe Belt style. Tires were blackwalls on body-coloured wheels & small hubcaps.

Would anyone be able to advise what I'm missing from the hood release? Getting ready to actually be able to latch the hood! Also, would anyone have a photo of a headlight bucket installed without the trim ring so I can see how the buckets are installed? Thanks in advance. Allan

I don't quite understand your question but does a picture of mine help at all?

Sorry, on my latch assembly there's a hole drilled and a cotter pin in the end. I assumed there was a handle that is missing?

For a '66/67 Acadian the release handle goes out through the hole in the bumper above the license plate. It attaches to the assembly that is part of the bracket that holds the 2 sides of the grille together. You need all of these pieces to make it work.

If you have a Nova(Chevy ll) or repop bumper you will need to drill a 7/8 hole above the licence plate for the arm to come through. had to mod my aftermarket bumper. Can check out my build thread for more info. http://canadianponcho.activeboard.com/t56432091/66-acadian-sd-resto-getting-close/?page=11&sort=oldestFirst

Looks like your arm is sticking out way to far(even if pulled). Pins r junk...remove.

I had it pulled all the way out in the photo to try to show the cotter pin. When released it is tight with the bumper........ and the bumper has the cutout for the arm.

Thanks to everyone for the info.

With a blue interior, would the carpet be blue or black? I need to order carpet for the car.

The carpet should be blue if your seats and door panels are blue.

Just thinking... do the pins hit the bumper when released? Thinking that the stopper on the grill support may be broken off, if so the lever would retract into the bumper so that you couldn't grab it. Maybe thats why the pins are there?

Pic of stopper so that release doesn't go back too far and either hit rad or pull through bumper.

IMG_5538.JPGYou guys are right on missing the stopper on the release latch. I'll have to remove it and tack on a stop.

The hood pin arrived yesterday. Thanks very much!! A couple minutes in the blasting cabinet and it's ready for paint. Would this have been Semi-gloss black or cadmium plated or? Thanks in advance.
