A Photo Journal of a Restoration - Start to Finish

This is a complete photo journal of the ground up restoration of my '65 Fastback which took place in '04 and '05. From start to finish it took just 9 months, and we're not professionals at this. I've owned the car since 1980, and since I was a gearhead in HS, refer to it as my HS Sweetheart. A friend of mine did all the body work and paint, while I did the undercarriage, rear end, and reassembly.

The 1st 17 weeks are on Blogger, and pictures for weeks 18 - 26 are on Photobucket, along with some pics of the finsihed product at Watkins Glen!

Make sure you start at Week 0 on Blogger, and click here for the continuation on Photobucket.

John car came out looking good. Did you go with the late model fuel injected 302 or did you keep the 289. Pat
