Here's where the ground wire for the steering column goes.
Also had to make sure that the voltage regulator had a good ground on the firewall, and that the tail light housings had a good ground to the body. All that fresh paint gets in the way of good grounds sometimes.

It's finally time to start the engine and burn off some of that orange paint on the exhaust manifolds.

There's still some odds and ends left to do...
get an alignment
fender bird decals
door VIN decal
install console
find a wheel for the spare tire
maybe a few other things

It's very nice. I have a 70 RR 383 4-speed car that I'm hoping to start on very soon.

Awesome car! I am putting the finishing touches on my GY3 Duster 340 now. Always some issues that need fixing but does look finished. Good Luck!

GY3 is a great color. It's difficult to capture in a photograph, but it looks amazing in person.

What's your car like?



There's a 70 year old man down the road who's had a 1970 GTX since 1971. It's a 440 four barrel 4 speed manual transmission with a Dana rear end. It's a California car, and that's where he bought it, but it lived most of it's life in Wisconsin and is rusted BAD on the bottom.
He was interested in buying my Solid 1970 Satellite parts car once I was done with it, so that he could fix his car.
I drove the Road Runner over to see him the other day, to see if he still wanted the Satellite parts car, and he decided that he was getting to old to build his GTX. He really liked what I'd done with the Road Runner, and sold me the GTX to go with the Satellite parts car. I don't plan on building the GTX, but I hate to see it keep rusting away or get crushed, so I want to get it and the parts car into the hands of someone who will build it.
I see that you're in the same state as me, any interest in building a GTX instead of a Road Runner?

My Dad bought the car after he came back from Viet Nam. It was a demo and had about 6000 miles on it.Currently it has 31,000 on it now. We used it as a drag race car,but never cut on it,raced with a 4-speed then 727.We kept all the original parts except for the rear leaf springs,and the hub caps.It had a little rust in the 1/4's and some around the lower back window corners,but that was it.I have everything to get the car back on the road,just needs a bit more body work and might need a trunk floor,and new paint. It's a K2 car with burnt orange bench seats.I would like to get the car done soon as my Dad is 75 and I know he'd like to drive it again.

Beautiful ride. It sure looks a lot better than my 70' Road Runner project car.

That's awesome! You should definitely build that car, and soon.
