They are Canadian fenders as far as I know. Bought from a member not far from me who once had a familiar red Pontiac Brian. Yes the brace was ordered for a 64 chev impala

Check These Out 075.JPGHi Mike,
Before I disassembled my '64 CS, I took many pictures. In the one posted here, there is a red wire with a white plug coming from the original wiring harness. It is plugged into the contact you show in your picture. Perhaps your original harness has the same plug. Good luck.

Of course not. That would be too easy. Any chance of getting a closer photo showing what spot on the junction block it comes from?

real nice work...after reading your problems with the wheel clearance I remember reading about wheel

spacers. There was something about them not being allowed to be used in the new revisions for a vehicle

safety check come this July in Ontario. I thought to save any headaches that you might as well alter your rims

now........just a thought.....Bob

Yea. I read that too. I guess it cannot go through a safety with wheel spacers. I am looking for some 15" caprice rims anyways as they should take her dog dish hubcaps. We will only need to use spacers if she wants to run the full wheel covers

Mike,
As you can see in the photo, this red wire does not come from the fuse block but from the wiring harness coming from the front of the car. I am in Arizona until the end of March so I am unable to follow this wire for you at the moment. If you look under the dash, can you see where this plug leads to? Thanks, Carl, for the enlargement.

Sweet sounding 327 and it almost sounds like there is a bit of a cam going on in there. Mike did you change the cam. Continued good luck with your sweet 64 wagon build to both you and Allison. Cheers. George

Allison and Mike, any updates on that sweet 64 Pontiac wagon. I am really looking forward to seeing your car when it is done. I will guess it will be at Nashville North when the time comes. Cheers. George

Sorry. Things were slowed down waiting on parts and doing some spring cleaning with the nice weather. We are about to venture into the rear end of the car and get its new brake system up and running very soon. I have next week off to hopefully spend some time on it. But do have to squeeze in some work on a 72 Impala too

So we have been busy re-organizing the shop with the new lift and waiting on rear control arms and bushings to arrive. they will be here soon and we will have more pictures. This bushing was past warn out, right into the control arm.

In the mean time we have been waiting and received these beauties from a kijiji ad shared here from Alberta. The fellow was kind enough to ship for us.

Also we got our hands on these little toys for doing drums and rotors.

Nice car jewelry ... good bumpers are hard to find (especially on PEI).

we finally have brakes - power disc brakes. after a lot of work we have a running driving car again. Far from ready for the road but we are getting there.

63.jpg

64.jpg

nice new moving brakes - they were not actuall that bad except for the wheel cylinders that were seized solid.

65.jpg

Got some new heavy duty wagon coils and we had no choice but to replace the one lower control arm so we got some boxed ones to allow for us to eventually add a rear sway bar.

66.jpg

 

67.jpg

here is it after being able to drive and stop it out of the shop.

68.jpg

we have more work to do on waynes 72 than we weill be getting hard into the body work on this car. more to come
