1966 Other Makes Marlin
I got this project car from my father in-law; he had bought this some time in 1976 to work on it but, ever got a chance to do anything with it and car sat in indoor warehouse until three years ago. The car has only 34000. Miles originally The car had minimum rust few spots and that was it. I had the inside gut it out and sand blast the floor clean and apply the rust coating which I should mentioned that all my sprays and coating was purchased from Eastwood company, ricy but great quality. Changed all the padding and the carpet on the floo, The seat covers are brand new kept the original shape and design but had it professionally done. The dash area was in good shape just repainted it, adio works great, t’s the original and the screen on it is missing. I had it prewired should any one wants to add new stereo and speakers. The engine was completely redone; I bought most of the part from Kanter auto in Jersey and some form local shops in Tucson. Engine is 327 8 cylinder with 4 barrel carburetor. The engine cost me great deals of money, he radiator is brand new as well. Car runs great and sound very good, ires and breaks are brand new, he gas tank was opened and professionally cleaned. Under neat of the car was sand blasted and re coated (Eastwood Rubberized Rust Encapsulator Undercoating – Black) Basically the whole under neat was sand blasted and recoated. The paint was done the original color as well, rescent Green I am so confident that I will be happy to take it to any mechanic of your choice to inspect the car. Problems: There is small chip on the back light cover of the driver side. Windshield was cracked during the mechanical work. The radiator shroud needs to be changed I had one from another car and had to modify it to fit in. not the major work, I am just tired of the project, o not have much time and patience any more, thought it is something that I could do but, t is great for some that has a love for this thing. Not to mention 99.9 % is completed. I had mentioned the problems which not many. Do drive it on weekend; it is very rare to see this kind of the cars, gain it runs great lots of power and fun!
