Finally got the floor pan in and fitted. I have read the skepticism of fitting a full floor pan through either a door or window without cutting the floor. Well, I can confirm the floor does fit through the front windshield opening without cutting and with 2 people of course. Almost time to start shopping for a suspension and get the car back on wheels.


Serious dedication! Looking good! Thmbsup

Hey guys...thanks for all the positive feedback and encouragement. I promise I will post more pictures soon.

Although I didn't attach a photo of the finished work, I finally got the one piece floor fitted and welded in. It was definitely more work than I originally thought but the end result was well worth the investment.

In retrospect. it's hard to believe I picked up this car up off Craigslist for a mere $1,800. I remember driving 250 miles to see the car only to walk away because of the amount of work it needed. Driving back home and reflecting back on the car, I turned around bit the bullet and purchased the car. I remember hauling the car back racing against a New England snow storm and thinking to myself this was the biggest mistake I ever made. Looking back in hindsight I have no regrets.

I am extremely happy with the progress so far and I want acknowledge my friend who has guided me through this restoration process. Thanks man.


Great retrospect and glad to hear you have no regrets!

The progress is great.

Here are some additional pictures of my progress on my 66 fastback restoration. I prepped the floor below the seat riser with red oxide primer and weld through primer then plugged welded the risers to the tunnel and rocker panel first. Then I fitted the seats to check for proper operation moving back and forth. Everything works good so I will finish welding to the floor tomorrow.

A little behind schedule but hoping to have a rolling chassis by Thanksgiving. I was able to purchase about 95% of the suspension and hope to be installing soon. Unfortunately, my day job keeps getting in the way of my progress.


Great job on the restoration!!! I give you props on the welding. I have always wanted to learn and my neighbor said when we get back he is going to give me a few lessons. Great progress on the 66! Just curious if you thought of a color/color-combo you are going to paint it one day?
