Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and this will be my second build. My first was a 63 Impala that i didn't get to finish. Had to sell it when the housing bubble blew up in 08. Im a disabled vet with PTSD, working on cars is therapeutic for me. I hope that explains why i chose this car. It needs a resurrection just like me. The body on this car looks very good, except for some small patches of rust, they will have to be cut out. Right now I'm cutting out some rust on the roof, on both sides. The firewall needs some patches and the passenger fender. I paid $500 for the car, no engine or trans, the hood did not come with the car.(I NEED ONE). Interior needs a complete resto. I have the original bucket seats and rear seat (need new covers badly). Carpet is ruined, haven't pulled it up yet to inspect the floorboards for rust. Since the carpet is coming out, i think dynamat and the dynaliner is good idea to install. Im thinking of either going with a 350 crate with the FAST EFI kit or a used LS. Right now I'm focusing on the body and then the interior. If anyone can offer insight as far as tips, tricks, websites with 78 MONTE parts.
