This is my Fathers and My $50 dollor project car.
It's A 1979 Cutlass it has the 260 cu 4.3l 2 barrel v8.
When we bought the car we got it for $50. Th... Show moree car had been sitting for about one year. The rear of the car was rotted from the rear wheels back. It started right up but it did not have any power steering because the box was shot. It came from factory with the bucket seats, Floor consul, Rally steering wheel and rally gauges.
The car had the crome trim pack when we took it off the outer wheel wells were rotted. The bottom of the doors would flap in the breeze. And the bottom of every fender had rot wholes in it.
We made patches for the wholes and got the car in cray primer.
The interior smelt horrible the carpet was held in with screws the plastic was dry rotted and the vinly was cracked from being in the sun. We had the rally gauges but none of them worked. The defrosters did not work nor did the radio. There was one tinted windo on the whole car.
We got better interior soon after we got the car. We got 1980s Monte Carlo seats a new carpet and a new dashboard. Then we got the rally gauges out of about 4 differnt cutlasses so they would all work.
We found a shifter out of a 1970s omega then got another carpet and replaced that with the new shifter and a boot
My father and I built a hood scoop out of a trunk lid we had from our 1964 corvair. then we cut wholes in the hood under it.
After we made the hood scoop we painted everything flat black
We found Cragars off of a 1970s cutlass for $40 $10 dollors less then we paid for the car.
