Hello everyone

Well I sold the race car alittle burnout about having just a drag only car.

Well It didn't take long but I turned around and bought a 67 Belvedere with a 318 and air conditioning I'm wanting to turn it in to a street strip car maybe do some nostalgic super stock racing.

All of the 65 Belvedere is locked in a cave begging for sunlight.

Cut up an original Silver Special 67 Belvedere to build a race car? Not these days! That is a desirable car in stock form, I'd leave it alone or give it a restoration. .02

That looks like a great car to perk up. I don't imagine it's too much fun to drive as is.

No not a all out race car. Just add some go fast parts and have fun.


I don't have any attachments to the car so might sell and buy something else

I'd drive the snot out of it just like it is .

Im thinking a 66 or 67 Belvedere will be my next garage victim for myself.
I dont need all out fast, I want a nice driver with A/C

If I may ask, where did you find it? 10K sounds like a really good buy for a what appears to be a pretty decent looking car.
AKA, right up my ally
