I wanted to reintroduce myself, Hi Im Shawn aka (Flank4) I was on here about 5 years ago when I got my 76 2002. I dont remember the name I was under but I didn't say much at the time. Well five years later im back and my 02 has been in the same spot. I went and took some photos for you guys to see what I have to work with. for now Im planing on sanding down the rest and sealing it. then plasidiping my car flat white till i can afford a real paint job.

One other thing it is a 76 so a smog check is going to suck. But I think I might have all the smog parts on the car right now. ON TO THE PHOTOS!

Everything looked pretty good (or at least not too bad) until I got down to the engine compartment photos. That area is going to take you the better part of a day to get pristine :-)

Welcome Back!

you are in over yer head

needs $1,000's of parts, labor, and prayer

a list of obvious things needed:

-cooling system (yours is missing + all hoses)

-fuel system (pump, hoses, carb rebuild, tank inspected)

-ignition system (all wires and connectors)

-remove bogus alarm system

-body electrical system (relays,wiring, connections)

-Emission Control System (nothing is working - parts very hard to find)

-Body Is Loaded With Rust

-1/2 of airconditioning is missing (remove the rest that is present,

do your car a favor)

-Suspension, Steering, Brakes, Drive Line, remove front strut

height spacers - it's all about the STANCE don't you know?

-Nothing in the interior is safe without wearing HAZMAT clothing

-should be a nice long term project for someone with

no budget restriction - or sell for parts

-it needs A LOT

we're all here to help

Save'um, Don't Crush Them.

I read a suggestion recently that advised to register the car via a friend's or relative's address in a less strict smog-zone.

Basically, someplace in rural CA.

Not sure if you know anyone that can do that, but on a '76 that would be a good option if available.

Looks like you have some work ahead of you, but please "say no" to the Plasti-dip and use a bit of rubbing compound or polish.

LOOK AT THE ROUND ' snorkle ' next to the right side of the radiator

that's air intake fitting for the original air cleaner - the air intake

for the intake-heating warming device to prevent carburetor

icing.

this is a 1976 with all the emission control krap removed

car is really happy without it.
