    • I am not aware of anyone (that I know) that has repaired a '51 Cheiftain. Sounds like a great car. You have two choices when it comes to repairing the floor boards. You will have to have someone cut out and custom fabricate the damaged panels or you can try to find a donor car (which is very hard to find and will be very expensive). You may (I stress MAY) get lucky and be able to adapt/use the reproduced floor boards of a '51 Chevy. You can get them from Chevs of the 40s website. They have a floorboard from the front to the rear seat  riser. Again, there are no guarantees that these will fit or work at all.
    • Yesterday I washed both Lucy and the Roadmonster, then I brought the Roadmonster home to work on the driver’s door. While not as bad as the passenger door was, it still needed some work. I had purchased another complete door panel from an Estate Wagon last fall for it but I never got around to installing it once Lucy had her catastrophic failure. The guy I purchased it from packed the hell out of it. It was wrapped in bubble wrap, miles of packaging tape, cardboard, and peanuts - tons of packing peanuts. It filled up 2/3 of my trash barrel with rubbish! I will have a huge cardboard collection for recycle day on Wednesday! Sunday I got the door on the car torn down and the key pieces that needed stripped off the blue Estate Wagon panel. I started dying the some of the parts. Ready for the maroon dye. The door is torn apart. I discovered that the speaker was not plugged in too. Today I finished the job of dying the parts and putting everything back together. The plastic wood trim above the pull strap was missing and the you can see the comparison between the cracked original piece and the replacement piece.  Also note, ,ol’ butter fingers Frosty dropped and cracked the original,piece even further after this photo was taken. Clever lad. Now all the interior work on the Roadmonster is done. Time to turn to do some of the little mechanical stuff - like no working AC or temp gauge.
    • You should be able to get a fuel to carb line off a Nova, Camaro, Monte Carlo, etc., anything that ran a 305, 307, 327, 350, or 400 2-bbl back in the day.
    • Yes, the line goes into the front of the carb makes a turn at the waterpump and goes down the side under the alternator bracket to the pump. So if that's the case would I be looking for a fuel line compatible with a 305/quadrajet combo?  Thanks for the info y'all. I haven't worked on this car in a few years. I'm a little older, I have some more cash in my pocket, and I have a little more mechanical experience under my belt. (Plus I can weld a little now too). I got sick to my stomach seeing my girl rot away in the woods. Good news, lights and starter still work. Coolant is still full and rich green, oil is full and crystal clear (changed it prior to parking her). Engine fires right up with some starting fluid, but fuel delivery is an issue right now. I think brake lines are gonna need to be fixed and the big ticket item is the transmission. Tranny leaks so much that after 24hrs it wont drive, hopefully its something as simple as seals. Surprisingly 3/4 tires are still full of air lol.
