Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Although the weather here has been really nice so far this year, the sun has not been that hot. Every time I get a really clear sunny day, I put the '65 in the driveway and let it bake. The hood and top have actually made it to over 155 degrees, but the sides don't seem to get over 120, and that is ...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

I got my vent window hinge bracket part!!! :drool: I spent the day at the Winter Carlyle car show and swap meet looking for the vent window hinge piece I need. I was ready to pay up to $100 for the part or up to $400 for the assembly in any condition and just take the part off the assembly and insta...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Any luck finding the replacement part for your window? Any chance you can fabricate one or go to a local fab shop and have it done for you? No luck as of yet unless I buy the whole used window frame for $499.00. Not that desperate yet. Tomorrow starts the NCRS / Corvettes at Carlyle Winter Meet car...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Re: rear differential cross member bushings

Vette Brakes and Products sells them, but they don't come cheap. $160 each! Or maybe it's for the pair - it's not really clear. Either way it's a lot of money for a hunk of rubber. :willy: http://www.vbandp.com/auto-parts.html?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage-ask.tpl&product_id=526&categor...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Boy am I PI$$ED! There is a very small metal bracket, about the size of paper clip which is riveted to the drivers door window frame, and is part of the hinge for the vent window. Here is an internet photo of the part: dr-352_69.jpg Here is where it goes in the window: Vent Hinge 09-59a_5.jpg instal...

Re: Corvette Generation - HELP

I do know them and I bought some brake lines for our '95 corvette from them, used. Ours rusted through and I could not find new ones anywhere, and they were one of the few that had any at all. They are a small Corvette parts shop with a heck of a lot of used inventory for C3 & C4 Corvettes. You get ...
