'64 Monza Barn Find

Unread post by jcuda94 » Tue Apr 18, 2017 9:05 pm

Hey guys, made my first post to the forum and the initial post on my Monza in the introductions topic section. I made my way out to the farm and after sorting through a box of 200 keys and a little bit of a difficult haul I got her home.

Here's a link to the post: https://www.corvairforum.com/forum/view ... 13&t=12840

Decided to just make a project post to show my progress and document it throughout the entire process. Attached are some more pics I took after the first quick bath and I'l have some interior pics soon. I'm currently just giving the car a once-over and peaking into different areas to get an idea what I need to focus on and add to my checklist. Some time over the next week I will be looking over a post I found about reviving a dead Corvair.

I got into the car after washing and kinda just fidgeted with a few things. All the seals are pretty rough as expected. Found two rats/mouse nests under the driver and passenger seat. Vacuumed all the crap out from that but the rest of the interior was pretty solid. I'll be looking into further damage possibilities with wiring. These mice even had the rat poison packages in their nests so i'm sure they didn't hold back. Cleaned and oiled a few hinges including the rear seat back rest hinges. Starting to take pieces out of the engine bay for inspection and cleaning. I'm starting to find some evidence of molestation and I'll post those pictures as well a little later.

I'll Reply to the comments on my first post in the Introductions section but might end up routing everything over to this post. Feel free to make any comments or leave any tips or headers that you think will help. Thanks guys!

Make sure to remove the engine top cover and clean out all the engine cooling fins.. Mice love to live there too.
