got my 86 classic out of a 6 year storarge

Post by 1973 454 MONTE on Sat Mar 17, 2012 11:02 am

took it to the tranny shop. hope to have it back next week.


it sat outside for a couple years,and the weather got to it. has been inside for the last 4,wish i would of worked on it. i put it together with my uncle in 86 as a strip out. my g-ma passed 7 years ago and my g-pa gave it to me. nobody changed the oil,so the motor was pretty shot and i did not know it. when the motor blew i just desided to keep it. a nice 350 was dropped in it 3 1/2 years ago,but tranny chattered @55. so again i parked it.now since the monte will be taken apart again and gone through,i need something to take cruzin.
cant wait to drive it again

took the CC to the new house yesterday. looks good in the barn.


got the trans rebuilt,now the rear main is leaking. engine light comes on,gas gauge dont work. wanted to start driving it,but looks like the house comes first. i promised it to my 14 year old for his first car. i have 2 years to get it up to snuff..

Yep. It's 20x32. In about 2 months I will be starting the build of an addition to the front of it. Was thinking 20x32,but think I'm going 20x40. So finish barn will be 1440 sq feet. This barn has a full size attic also. A 2 post will be in the front barn, so NO attic space there. Will keep posted on build and finding of parts I have not seen for some 15 years. Very Happy
