hi everyone, i am new here because i just bought a 73 satellite today, and i love being on forums when i want to work on a car. let me tell u what i kno about it as of now.
the guy i bought it off of didnt kno anything about cars, so he didnt really want it. he told me it was originally a 6cyl car that had a motor swap, but after looking at it i found out its an original 318 3spd auto. the cool thing is, even tho the body is rough, it has never been painted before. all completely solid and in good shape underneath.
idk if the motor is original or not but i plan to find the block number to try and find out. thats actually something i would like help with cuz idk where the number is on it yet. also anything else i should look for.
the car does have a small lifter tick after it runs for a while, but not a big deal. ima get a lifter kit and do that soon.
i do body work for a living, and i plan on doing a full resto to her, but here is the thing...
if its an original motor i would like to kno what u guys think. should i just restore to original condition with motor and body, or do a little resto mod?
plus i would really love having some tips/trick/ideas for the car. i kno u guys kno a lot more about it than i do, and that one reason im here.
if u want to see the car, just look at my profile n u can get a good view. thanks in advance.
