Roads are bad all over NM except for the stretch of US 60 to I-25 from the Highway 47 interchange. I am still trying to find out which politician lives out there, for them to be out there every couple of years working on it.

Just surprised you were able to find one in such good shape.

Lowriders are not my thing but that Rampside is at least not a cookie cutter Ratrod. I had a 61 No window Corvair van back in the early 80s, i could pull and re install the motor pretty quick, I got tired of doing it though. Having one of the only vehicles made with a rumbleseat area that can't be used seems dumb to me but whatever.

Dad and I could pull and have the motor split from the trans axle in just about an hour and we didn't have a floor jack only a 2X12 and some concrete block to set it on

I knew an old guy who would let me borrow his floor jack. I pulled and installed VW bug motors unstacking and stacking short lengths of 2x4s though.

We used a bumper jack 2 stacks of blocks and a long 2x12 we would jack the thing up get everything ready stack the blocks with the 2x12 on top then set the truck back down on the 2x12 finished un bolting the motor then I would either push down or lift on the 2x12 and dad would remove blocks when he pulled the last one he would slip an old skateboard under the 2x12 and we would slide it out.

You didn't look close enough at the pic it's not a rampside it is one of less than 400 load sides made. No ramp. Hard to take advice from someone that dosen't pay attention to details. This Cp dosen't have a rumble seat. When you do stuff like this every little thing counts. It will be alright just stay tuned. I'm thinking an all tube frame screw the cookie cutter ones out there.

Hard for me to appreciate different colors, bondo, and rust hauling brush. Just follow a concrete truck to a job site and youll see plenty.

Nice rims though. Get them from rent-a-tire?

No the rims and tires ar off my sons Chevy II we're redoing. Big block blower Corvette rear full frame floor moved up 3" you know the normal everyday 64 Chevy II



You have to know the complete store before you make a final decision about something you see. It has a 4bt Cummins a 700r trans and a Jag rear in it. Sit it besid a $50,000.00 show car and it gets all the attention. I could paint it if I wanted I just don't want to. This is my other 31 sedan.

I picked up the doner that has an all aluminum nailhead. Got back the the shop and it's a little depressing but I think we can still save it. I'm doing some research for parts and a machine shop willing to install at least 1 new cylinder liner. It may not work out but I'm going to see if it can be saved. Car is a 61 or 62 Skylark no title $500.00 if anyone interested.

? Looked like the valve covers are canted; is that really a nailhead? If it is be careful because on the early cast iron nailheads there is not enough material to install stellite exhaust valve seats - the machinist will cut right into the water jacket.

That car has a rope driveshaft, yes? and independent rear suspension? GM had some innovative shit back in the day.

Hope you save that motor.

EDIT: Of course if they are AL heads they already can accept hard seats. Doh.

I guess it's a nailhead? It's a 61 all aluminum 215. 4 barrel. It has a straight axle in the rear, air cooled trans that never was any good. I found this.:

There were six displacements of the "nailhead" in two generations between 1953 and 1966, varying from 264 cu in (4.3 L) to 425 cu in (7.0 L); three displacements of standard cast iron small blocks between 1964 and 1981, and 300 cu in (4.9 L) and 350 cu in (5.7 L); one of the 215 cu in (3.5 L) aluminum blocks (1961-1963); and three big blocks between 1967 and 1976 and 400 cu in (6.6 L) and 455 cu in (7.5 L).

If you haven't gotten the nailhead loose yet, try boiling coca cola and pouring it in each cylinder. let it set awhile and take a 2x4 and hammer and tap the pistons, the pistons will probably move. I've gotten a few unstuck that way.
