Welcome bro. Cant wait to see the pics as you progress. I couldn't agree more with everything JUSTA said. Ask as many questions as you can because you can never have to much knowledge. These guys on here are more then willing to take the time to help and are extremely knowledgeable. A couple of the places I get parts from are Ames Performance (amesperf.com) OPGI (www.opgi.com) Franks Pontiac Parts (www.frankspontiacparts.com). Good luck and keep us posted!

Welcome and what a neat project👍

 i am with what the guys have suggested.

i would start with making a plan, and get yourselves a white board, stick it on the wall and write up all the things you need to do.

 cross them off as you complete each job and put up new objectives as you go along, also by writing down what you need to do, you can work out a practical sequence.


get engine going, check compression, oil pressure etc , look for leaks, worn parts

take for a drive.

 check everything again...

 that sort of thing

and enjoy the whole process, its one hell of a lot of fun   :dancingpontiac:

From what I see rear 1/4 panel is repairable & possibly a 55 Chevy "patch panel" might work??  How bad is fender up front?? May be able to do same there?? Agree with getting it running first!! Then decide if engine & drive line is good or needs rebuild or a " swap" to up grade, depending on your driving habits or if your going the "stock" restore route?? Nice car " I like it"  First year of V 8 & hope parts are available, as Pontiac changed it for 56 [something to consider if parts scarce, to go upgrade]  That was a problem for me here in Ontario when I had my 64 Catalina, being a US only car, but much better for you there.  Good luck, keep us posted.
