Finally, my friend and engine builder has my engine ready and time to help me install it starting next week. Very excited to shoe horn this baby in my 69 Rambler with the Bulltear mounts.  The valve cover gaskets in the picture and some other parts in the video are just testers.  Any last minutes words of wisdom are welcome.  Thanks.

Took my front seat out this morning.  A little cumbersome doing it solo.  After the engine is installed next week I'll need to crawl under the dash and snake my new electrical harness in and hook everything up. Never again will I try to do it with the seat in.  I was a pretzel for 3 days afterwards last time I was under there with the seat in. Cry

Thanks, I bought the car that way from a guy in Southern Cal.  It's kind of funky but cool.  Someone put some pretty good work into it.  When I repaint it, I'm going to keep the same color I like it so much.

Very interesting interior. I would stay with! It unique and Kool in it's own way.
Good luck dropping in the engine and like you it's worth the time to take the seat out for under dash work.

Matt,
Looking good. I see you are pulling the Rambler around with a old Ford truck. Good man!!

Couldn't get your video link to work.

You'll have it running by Nov for Boulder City.

Having AMC Fun,
