    John, that Council Bluffs dealer was McIntyre Olds Cadillac Another Council Bluffs new car dealer was Floyd Hughes Chevrolet. I do know of a 1966 Chevy Biscayne 2 dr post, dark blue ordered with the 427 425 hp engine, M21 4speed and 4.10 gears for dealer inventory. Local guy raced it. It is now restored and in New Zeland.
  3. My cars over the years

    Yes I have lived in Council Bluffs, IA all my life and know the area very well. Was that a factory W30? If it was, only 16 were made in that body style. Would be a nice car to have today
  4. My cars over the years

    John, I noticed the license plate on the 1966 W30 Olds is that 59 county Nebraska, Offutt AFB? I believe that O'daniel Olds in Omaha, NE had a dealer tag like the one on the trunk

    Automatic. The automatic behind the optional W72 400 cu.in engine had some enhanced internals, increased shift points and an 11 inch higher stall torque converter. In 1977 this combination was good for mid 15 sec @ 90 mph in the quarter mile off the showroom floor. High 14's were possible with open scoop and dropping the catalytic converter. Slow by todays standards but impressive for mid 1970's standards.

    Very nice Mach 1! I have always liked that Mustang body style. Good luck at your show.

    Yes, in addition to Fords I am also a Pontiac guy too. I have owned this one since new. It was ordered on Dec 29, 1976 and took delivery on March 18, 1977. This is an original 11,000 miles unrestored factory original including factory applied lacquer paint and tires. The car was ordered with the optional W72 400 cu.in. engine and is a factory aluminum wheel car. Thought you might like to see what a new, original 1977 Trans Am looks like. 2013 World of Wheels Best in Class Winner. Will be at the 2018 World of Wheels Omaha, NE in March

    Ben, I have cut away some of the center section of the seat and will use half round Plastruct styrene plastic to create the pattern Vinnie....close up photos show that the top is vinyl

    Steve, I plan on using the vinyl roof material from Model Car Garage. This is the same material that I used to replicate the rubber mat on my 1963 lightweight Galaxie

    That's cool Tom

    The kit I bought off ebay. Thanks Tom, this will be a bit of challenge, more so than the 63 Galaxie's
  13. Beginning the body work and adding the side trim.
  14. Actually the color is Code T which in 1963 was SandShell Beige. I had MCW custom mix this color in spray.
