    Welcome! More details, please!

    You got a double print. That happens sometimes and the only way I've found to fix it is to delete the print and download it again. Not a big deal.

          Welcome! Sounds like a great candidate for a 502.

              Don't see many '64 Elco's running around. Good luck with the build.

                  Love it! about 18 years ago I had a 67 El Camino for a DD. Went from a 283 to a 427 back to a 283. Miss it. Loved the great visibility and nice ride. Was a nice ride till I put in stiffer bushings and bigger sway bars. (makes me sound old eh?)

                    I dont think it was a double print but a double click. These old fingers dont work nearly as well on a computer as they do a hot rod

                        YES i agree. Need to buy some stock in the tire company before I start driving it.

                            Love the Elco. Looking forward to the updates as the build progresses.

                              Ok Here we go...

                              So to start I borrowed my friend rotiserie but i ended up modifying it with larger casters and longer arms. Im working on this at my buddies house who has a barn and big back yard with gravel so I needed something that could go "off road"
