Re: 66 sway bar trouble

Thanks Otto. Yea, the Moog part is like the ones I have. So far the GM number is turning up the same thing. This is crazy. I can’t be the only person that’s run into this. I’ve checked Rock Auto bushings for 66 Cadillac, Pontiac, Buick, Chevrolet etc. with no luck there either. Same with 67 Toro. I ...

66 sway bar trouble

Has anyone replaced the sway bar bushings in their 66? I’m having trouble finding the right bushings. I ordered a set along with the link kit from Rock Auto. They sent the wrong parts. The link kit had the long 7” bolts with long spacers. No problem, I got shorter bolts and cut the spacers down to s...

Re: 67 Toranado Rescue

Also check the lower body behind the rocker trim. They all rust out behind there. A decent paint job is gonna eat up most if not all of your $10k. Interior work is expensive too. I paid $3000 to have my seats done. Hows the carpet and headliner? And chrome? Then you’ve got brakes, tires, exhaust.......

Congrats Christopher! Looks like a nice car. Especially like the carpet ;)
How do you get it to hang upside down in the car port?

Re: German imported -66 headlight problem

Try eBay for the Service Manuals for the car. The headlights should not take 20+ sec. to open or close. Sounds like you have a vacuum leak somewhere. Check all the lines for cracks or loose fitting. As far as the switches, it’s impossible to tell from the pictures what they go to. They were added on...

Re: 67 Toro Rear Window Drain Outlet Caps

Not sure of what you’re talking about.

Are you referring to the drain tubes for the rear vent behind the back glass? If so Fusick has the tubes. There were no “caps” for them as that would defeat the purpose. The tubes drain the vent thru the trunk and out thru the sides of the trunk floor.

Re: Five Toronado barn finds

That’s a really cool find. Too bad the building wasn’t leak proof.

Damn shame!

Re: 66 Parts For Sale

Sorry blcody. Nothing salvageable remains. The dash is cracked and all of the panels are missing. I was hoping they were in the trunk but no luck.

Re: Considering adding passenger-side rear view mirror

I too am having this same debate with myself. I bought the passenger mirror from Fusick but haven’t put it on yet because it doesn’t match the driver mirror. Add in the problem of symmetry as you state and I’m thinking I may just leave it in the box.

Decisions,decisions...
