1968 Monza Coupe
Parker King
The project was basically a body shell with almost all the parts included. The previous owner was in the process of converting the 4-speed transmission to a Powerglide. Fortunately not much progress was made so all of the clutch and shifter parts were for the 4-speed hadn't been removed from the car. Click on any picture to enlarge.

October 2023: Project complete!!
Comoleted Project June 2023: Project is nearing completion.

            February 2023: Interior almost done. Black vinyl with cloth inserts were top stitched to resemble the stock '68 interior complete with the chrome buttons from the original seats. The door cards were covered in the same materials as the seats and the '68 buttons and Monza emblems were added to make it look more like "factory".
              Old school 15" Rally wheels will be used. The wheels were painted gunmetal metallic to match the strips. 
              We went with a white with gun metal metallic stripes and highlights. 
              Feb 2020: Some serious rust issued were discovered that will need some attention. Sometime in the past, the lower windshield edge sheet metal had been replaced by one made of fiberglass. It was installed very poorly making a perfect place for rust to breed.  
              After the rust was repaired and new steel piece was put into place, it looks at little better!! 
              Jan 2020: The engine was freshened up with new rings, bearings and gaskets and seals. A new clutch and a period-correct 4-speed transmission were added. 
              October 2019: There had been some rust on the car but the previous owner had properly repaired much of it. the body itself was straight but there will be some work to get the door gaps adjusted reasonably.
