    Wait...what do you mean by a daily driver? I hope that you don't drive that thing on the salty Michigan roads but will only use it as a summer dd, right?:hs:

    Is that everything you have for mods? Any more suspension/steering/brake stuff? I'd never trust my 65 for daily driving, the suspension and steering is way too sloppy and the brakes are scary at times. If theres any ruts in the road, it'll just dive right into them no matter what I do.

    mine drives like a dream. I have manual steering and manual brakes with 4 wheel drums....even have the single resivour MC still :noes:

    people drove these cars everyday 40 years ago, that doesn't mean we can't drive them everyday today right?

    post pics of yours

    I think thats my problem, the power steering is too loose so I can't really feel what the car is doing. I should probably buy some new struts too.
    I have the ole 4 wheel drum single MC brakes too...it gives you a great feeling when someone slams their brakes ahead of you and you just hope that you stop in time. Especially when your car doesn't have seatbelts.:noes:

    Anyways, heres some pics.
