Found a Wounded Bird, going to Nurse Her back to Health. She'll fly again... In the meantime, got my work cut out for me. This is what I wanted so Wish Me Luck!

Congratulations on saving that Wounded Bird, Ryan! Down the road with a lot of TLC, she will look like the Bird she was when she flew outta Wixom 55 years ago! As you need help with her, post away in the '58-'60 Squarebirds Forum. They will be a big help to you.

What a Cool Place to be a Part of... Just what the Internet should be used for. Communication. Thx!

You're very fortunate to still have the skirts. Usually they're the first things to disappear.

They're both there in Excellent AZ shape. Score one in the Win Column. Had no idea they were so rare. I've already seen a few at some Boneyards out here in the Desert. Good to Know

Ryan thanks for the compliment about our site and yes these people know what they are talking about as they have been there. In no time in your restoration project your bird will " fly " and turning heads:D

Trying to figure out what motor and tranny combo I'm going to put in here. YellowRose kindly gave me some great advice. Looking into the 390. If anybody has started a project without an original setup I'd love to hear any suggestions or recommendations on threads that would be helpful... Thanks!

If you want to entertain the idea of putting a 429/460 in there, I can give you some pros and cons. The transmission in my car is a C6.

I noticed that and thought the same thing. I'm lucky enough to have two sets of them :)

I already switched to a 390 in our 58 a few year ago, it was very easy, looks like the summer project will be switching to a C6 that is now laying on the shop floor, so if I am ahead of you on that, maybe I will be able to help.
