    Tore's Toyota Crown 1969 Wagon porject

    Heyo, about a month ago i decided to start restoring one of my dads old crowns, he had a plan about restoring it 10 years ago, but he had enough else to do and he just put it away along with the other cars...
    keep in mind that im only 16 years old and english is my secondary language
    first day...

    had some flats so i decided to change to some chrome wheels that where just laying in the barn ..


    engine has run 460 000kms 8) but dad had a total overhaul of the car in '83 new paint, som new engine components, engine fully overhauld, so ready for 400 000 km more :lol:

    interior stripped, everything is laying in another garage 200meters away form the barn where thees pics where taken

    i have a little porblem... all this crap is in the way.. you can see the wagon sligtly in the left bottom...

    from the other side, my wagon infront of the red one


    huston we got a problem..

    the red wagon is missing something..

    this shit aint moving...

    had to jack the back end of my wagon out and squeez it between the wall and the other car...
    this vid is explaining it
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK0mMAlL ... r_embedded
    then i realized i got no clutch... so i found some old clutch master cylinders and piston and started playing and experimenting
    old clutch piston to the right "new" to the left, stole it from one of dads builds :lol:


    done!

    afer a shit load of bleeding the clutch it was finaly running
    found a crappy old seat and bolted in teperarly

    started sanding....

    decided to use the angel grinder on the sides... dad had masked of for black pin stripes then painted like 20 layers of more paint above, so i had to sand dow A LOT of paint to get i even, so i decided to do it like this instead

    took the other side aswell


    took the hood aswell had some scary bubbles on it, the hood was of a donor car due to the one that was on my car originaly had some damage..


    then i was done and decided to move the car to our welding shop.. only problem, we have to fucking many cars.... cant have all at the same place, luckly we got a car trailer

    thats one of dads pojects... started out as the same car as mine actualy, he cut away ca 5" from the side and ca 4" from the roof. Total ca 12" lower than orginal. + he cut the springs and lowerd the leaf springs, but still needs more low back..

    me and the car :P

    next to one of dads other projects, started out as the same , just stationwagon, yes it was a stationwagon before dad started cutting it up :P


    here is a video filmed yesterday, cold engine, not tuned or adjusted valves, and engine is an 1956 (? ish ) Volvo v8 truck engine ....
    Watch movie for sound and a better impression .

    been doing some more
    found some more rust behind this one..

    cut it out

    new plates

    found some more on the other side


    got my amplifier yesterday, did some work today, still waiting for my speakers..
    found this board Dad made a lot of years ago to have his cassette player and amplifier in , he made it fit right above the windscreen , and here it is

    nstalled a on/off switch on the right , then dad had installed a clock that were there when i found the board, then i installed a light to indicate that the amplifier is getting power, to prevent letting it stand with power on.. then the amp itself..

    at it place, being hold by my hand, kind of hard taking a pic with the other hand


    the rocket science...

    and a little video wit han old 5W speaker that is blown...
    i'v orderd 200W speakers
