I had a thread a while back about a 1971 GTX that I was unable to buy. Well, I ended up buying the 1965 Satellite that was sitting next to it and I brought it home this weekend. The plan is to do the mechanicals and not go nuts on a restoration. I'm the second owner and the original owner was a woman. She put 130K miles on this car and then she bought a Roadrunner. She eventually sold the Roadrunner and when she was 70 years old, she wanted another Roadrunner so they bought one for her. In my book she was one bad-ass granny and her name was Louise.

I watch Youtube nearly every night and I thought that it would be fun to set up a channel to show the progress. I don't plan on this as an income by any means, it's just an easier way for me to post on Moparts what I'm doing. I know that's not how people generally show progress on here and if it doesn't fly with the administrators, then I understand and I won't post

Thanks.

A big block, 4-spd, '65 Satellite? If you ever want to get rid of that, let me know. One of the nicest Mopars ever built.


Wife says too many cars, liquidation coming soon......

I decided to take a look under the seat covers that were over the back seat and was pleasantly surprised.

No build sheet here.

It’s a St. Louis car

My oldest came to help pull the motor, his idea, and didn't run into any major surprises. We had a good day and the rain held off while we need it to. The major thrashing is over for a while until the motor comes back from the machine shop. In the mean time I'll take press on with everything else.

WHOAH I missed that this was a 4spd, now I'm super stoked for you.

(I've always preferred a stick shift. I just slammed an 833 in the Duster 2 days ago and my also buddy completed putting a muncie in his 70 Chevelle this weekend)

Your floors look great too (save for under the back seat area.)

EDIT I'm going back to watch more of the video.
Also I've had good luck with rust removal, My Cuda (front end) and Duster (exhaust manifolds) (even the Dart trunk) project threads cover some methods

Thanks, I hit the rusty spots with SEM Rust Mort and then painted it with Rustoleum rusty metal primer.

Part 4 is up and running. The worst is probably done but the axle and springs are next.
The springs in the car are like my back, stiff as hell.
