Default 65Project 2b Replaced

Hey guys,been a forum member for some time as i aquired a 65 Tempest i purchased around 2000.My goal was to clone/restomod the 65.Aquired a lot of performance suspension parts and various clone parts. Now however i have found a 64 documented GTO i will be bringing home soon which requires frame-off attention.So i'm going to prep the 65 as a tempest for sale and offer up various items/options including a 400eng as a package deal.This will obviously take me some time as i prep for room and learn a decent price to put on the 65. My 65 has a better body,less rust than the 64.But my 1st love was a 64 i bought off a lil country car lot for $185 way bac when,my 2nd for $150 as a barn find a neighbor had found.So i wanna be fare as the 65's back lower section of the frame had been cut to repair a 66 frame i have to build for the 65,now to use on the 64.I do have all pcs removed as the GTO car numbers are on them. It's basically the rear cross member& portions of the side frames.I'm very excited as i've dragged my feet for years with hopes once again to find a 64 in my budget.I will update and post more as i progress because i'm excited and spinning in circles.I want to thank many over the years who had info to good buys on parts. Some 65 pics below,but a sneek at the 64.So i believe i'll post this thread in the parts section also if ok.I can't wait now to start the 64!

The 64 doesn't look that bad , now you just need to get on it & get going. I know it's hard to start but once you get going it will go quick. As the old saying goes, JUST DO IT. Any help needed all you need to do is ask & we will help you out. This site is going to grow if I have to sit here all night to make sure poster get helped.

Really doesn't look bad at all.
The things they hide, the way they spin things, the excuses that they make and the things they omit.

How's the frame?
You can shear a sheep many times, but you can only skin them once.
