Project Salty

Been served up a little plate of depression lately, working on everyone else's junk, getting fatter laying around watching tv and playing video games. Been saving up, received a bonus from work, and have sold a lot of the shed contents.

Put the feelers out for a project for the past month and a half and think I've nailed it. This one is going to take longer than any other project I've had, more money, and patience. I've done the mild, I've done the try to please everyone, this b!tch is going to be rowdy AND was picked up at the beach, hence the name Salty.

Started out yesterday morning, brother insisted on driving his truck



Made it to the guy's shop, lots of eye candy!







Painting a freaking helicopter!

That is what I was thinking at first, but the S10 looks a little bit more like an abandoned project with dust ring from the roll of duct tape on the roof. Then again removable hard top screams beach to me.

I spot a white GMC S-Series in the background of the Porsche-centric photo as well. Maybe that's the one?!?!

I'm also not 100% convinced he didn't just buy the helicopter in the paint booth!

Lol the title isn't Projekt Salzig.

Keep guessing though! I'll spill the beans in a bit. Good stories already.

I see what appears to be the back half of an older fullsize behind the Porsche as well.

To be honest, I don't see anything there that doesn't scream out as a project for you

Alright guys, meet Salty. 1964 2 owner more door chevelle Malibu.









Dude's father bought it brand new in 64, drove it forever, started a restore on it but passed away, son got it. He tried to continue the resto work but failed miserably, lost motivation. His mother came down with leukemia, needed money, brought it to this guy's hot rod shop and asked what he'd give him. Shop owner bought it for $2500, sold it to me for $2700.

It's got a ton of jackassery that will need to be undone, but this is going to be around awhile, test my patience, and my wallet. It's got an early 80's 305 with powerglide. I haven't got a lot of time with it as everyone else is needing my help. Just got in from rebuilding my nephew's front end in his 4 runner.

The name Salty is there because it came from myrtle beach, sc, and it's going to be a rowdy *****. She's going to have her tongue hanging out and flipping everyone off. Better suspension than the blazer, 6.0, T56, long tubes, BIG cam.

Going to start out getting it "right" as far as wiring and what not goes, lots of bare wires twisted together and left, wires straight off the battery with no fuse, etc. Skin is crawling just typing that.

When I talked with the shop owner we hit it off pretty well, he's a cool guy. Got down there, he reached in and it fired right up. Ok.. did the walk around, bs'd some, than he brought me in for the in depth tour of his shop. Oh, the car was still idling. Finally get back out, pay him, get the title, car still idling. Prep trailer, hop in, run out of gas.

Get it on trailer, get to gas station.





Go around pulling all loose lights, trim, emblems off so nothing falls off coming home (3.5 hrs). Door and fender trim held on by widdled plastic trees inserted in the back. Got it all taken care of, nephew arranged all the emblems on the driver's seat while I talked with a homeless couple admiring the car. You know you did ok when a homeless guy tells you you stole it.

Get home late, dark out, everyone is ready to be done, no interior lights. I rush, hop in car, crush every emblem with my fat ass. Ok.. then car wouldn't start so we push it into the garage. I notice I can hear everyone behind the car clearly but don't think anything of it. Get it in the garage under lights.. no back window. Idiot just propped the rear window in the car, not a drop of glue or anything. Gouged the driver's fender on its way out too.



Battery was drained from trying to start with no gas, pop charger on it and it fired right up. Doesn't sound bad for a 305. Exhaust is crimped pretty good, has the old school high compression sound to it. Rear tail pipes are held on with plastic strapping.

Got a chance to get under it last night, took a minute to get it jacked up, and had a good laugh.



There's an AutoZone somewhere cleaned out!





Normal neglected hot rod





How it sits



And first purchase/unjackassery item complete.
