67 cadillac hearse

Recommended Posts

so drivin home today i saw a 1967 hearse and had to stop to look at it. i talked to the owner over the phone and he said "its turns over but she don't start." i know i can get the car for farily cheap but the rear wires in the back for the tail lights and such are all hanging down.... so my question is what size of engie would be in the car and does anyone hace a diagram for the wires? i do only really intend on using the car for haloween so i dont want to HUGE of a project

Coming from much experience and the problems that arise from letting them sit. Change all fluids and ESPECIALLY clean your gas tank out and fill it with fresh fuel. I ruined a set of heads on my old Ford by using the old gas and it locked up my valves with sludge. Check your rubber brake lines and make sure they are not cracked. After doing the work...take it easy on it and drive just around locally to see if some other problems pop up. Love the older stuff....my passion.
