Stoked on my new 67ss

Hi, not too long ago I picked up this 67SS. It has been sitting since 2006. Fired right up and drove great, well until the new ethanol gas loosened up everything in the tank and left me high and dry. I am in the process of rebuilding the carb, replacing the rubber hoses, and dropping the tank.

Everything appears to be all original 1967 SS, matching numbers. It has the 250 I6, original paint, interior, rims/hubcaps. There are some rust spots and a few have been patched with bondo. The body is very straight. 116,xxx miles.

I am going to drive it as it while I set aside cash, but want to restomod when the time comes.

Anyways, excited to have this car and looking forward to enjoying it!

Nate

If it's numbers matching I'd be doing more resto and less modding but that's just me.

It looks like you've got a very good car to start with, it may be a
journey but stick with it! After my 67 sat for a number of years,
I dropped the tank before starting it and it had rust holes in the
top ... put in a new one and blew out the original gas line before
hooking it back up. Worked fine.

I went missing for a while. I got the car running good after rebuilding the fuel system. She burns oil, but that is expected. I also rebuilt the front end with a kit from CPP, drives great now. As for future work, still trying to decide what I want to do to it. I am trying to find a good body man to repair the bad metal. I believe it to be a true Hawaii car as it has the Heater Delete Option.
