I may have a rear spoiler for sale,, as of next week.. If interested let me know
Yes, I am interested, -Tim
You still have the Aspen R/T?
I wasn’t looking for radiator.
My wagon will be converted to A/C (one of these days) and part of that process is to convert my existing 18” radiator to a 26” one.
To do it correct, it requires replacement of the two metal plates (painted body color) located on both sides of the radiator that is welded onto the core support.
Item # 5
To clarify, H & N are F-body and F & G are M-body.
R, W, X & S is B-body, so not applicable here.
There is a couple of other ways to accomplish what I want to do.
One version is to get out the Sawzall and start cutting away, then drill new bolt holes.
Another version is what another fellow forum member did. He made adaptor brackets which he attached his wider radiator too. This method works as well – but the entire width of radiator is not used.
You can see the plates outlined in white, here. His hand-made brackets for radiator are black in color.
Sense I will be stripping the engine compartment and interior of car down to replace the firewall (for A/C) and to convert car to a manual transmission (transmission hump and crossmember modifications), my thought is to fix this, as well.
Yes I still have the Aspen R/t,,, and I`m looking at another friday morning,, So I may own a second,,one will end up a parts car
I like the Aspen R/T. "80 Aspen R/T and R.R. were the last muscle car the first go around. What drivetrain you doing?
I`m using a 360 with a mild Hughes Whiplash cam,,A 904 trans and a 81/4 sure grip, nothing too over the top a nice crusier, that has a sweet sound
headers? gear ratio? set a slicks?
It has headers,, the rear end is a 3.55, so nothing exciting,, no slicks, as this is a street car,just a set of G-60x 14 cobras on back with f70s on front,, just a fun toy. This is my forth F-body,, I bought a left over 76 r/t,,back in 1977, which I really loved,, that car got totaled down in Virgina, While on vacation, In the years since, I`ve owned two diff 77`s, and I`ve owned this 80, since 91,,and tomorrow I hope to add a 79 to my toy collection
Awesome! Your 80 really runs respectably I bet. Carb are you using? I do have 76-77 one piece spoiler up for grabs if anyone is interested
I did remove the radiator support at the spot welds if you are interested in it.
I did remove the radiator support from my RT but don't need it as my other car already has a 26" opening if you are interested in it.
Does anyone have a really nice Left front fender for a 79 aspen,,, and maybe a grille?
I have a fender from my 78 if that would work. minor dings but other than that in really great shape.
Exactly what I’m looking for.
Actually, I don’t need the top part – but it is easier to remove and reinstall with it still attached.
On the picture, above. The two grill brackets, the center upright and the horizontal plate is not needed, and they can be unbolted to make the item more flat and easier to ship.
I do recommend you keep the horn. They do go out from time to time and are getting harder to find.
A PM was sent.
Ed how much do you want for that fender,,and Do you have any idea what shipping to New York , might be?
Let me weigh it and try to figure it out. Give me a couple days and thank you
