Thank you to the many members and the information you share! I have always found the best information for my current project on this site. Some threads are quite entertaining as well as informational. I used to just ‘google search’ my questions or situations. Ive found that I was always drawn to this forum, so I’ve started to just come on here and decided to join! I am a bit of a rookie but I have always enjoyed working on classic cars! I have been learning a lot from here and excited to continue as I progress with this project…looking forward to cruising in her soon! Definitely an extremely pleasurable experience once they are tuned in and haul a$$! Thanks Again and good night all-MJ

Love the photos, love the car! Might be running a bit rich?
Welcome from Australia.
 
Welcome from another 66 Belvedere II owner. Looks like a solid car, might need some wiring work under the hood. Since you showed me yours here's mine.

Jenn, that's the way to dive into the car! Enjoy, sure a lot simpler than today's stuff. Lots of experience here to take advantage of. Welcome.
 
Welcome from another Belvedere fan!! Transplanted from Livermore to central Illinois in '05. Glad to have you aboard!
 
Welcome from Missouri!!
 
Welcome to the best place on earth. Sweet ride
 
Welcome to FBBO from Ontario, Canada. Enjoy your Belvedere and thanks for the pictures.
 
Welcome from NY.
I have a couple of 66's as well.
Looks really nice.
I would suggest changing the master cylinder to a 67 style it's not costly and much safer.
Just get a master cylinder from a parts store or RockAuto for a 67 and get this:

Welcome from the central coast. Used to live in Ramona for 22 years until we got back up here in 18.

Welcome from Australia.
Thanks, just pulled those the other night. I’m hoping it’s something like that with plugs that are to cold ‍♀️ and not worn valve guides or piston rings.
 
I LOVE that color!

Love the wagon, thanks for sharing. Back in the 90’s I was driving a yellow ‘59 chevy Parkwood as my daily!
HaHa the wiring in this thing-Oh man quite the mess under there, as you can see. Under the dash is even worse lots of damaged line, so I’m running new wire but straight lines in conduit and bypassing the use of the bulkhead connection.
