This was her home for several years.

The blocks under the wheels were so people looking at the car could get under with a creeper and look at the underside...........They mentioned that a few people looked at her and passed OMG.........OOPSY!!!!!

Lots of boxes of parts, shifter, distributor, interior pieces, trim pieces, grille pieces, chicken fingers, original spare tire, RAM ROD Breather assembly, you name it!!!!

Al mentioned he will check all the nooks and crannies of his garage and anything from the car goes with the car!!!!!

My new "bestie" is a great guy!!!

Big congrats to you and your son Ryan, nice to see everything came together today!
Scoring original owner W-Post cars in minus 25-C weather may be some kind of record but either way, it's just so great how the stars lined up and everything turned out like all was simply meant to be!
The original owner Al and his wife are indeed super people but like I mentioned as the deal came about, finding the right home for the car was important too.
Congrats again Ryan and like others here, I'll be looking forward to lots of updates/details/pictures!

The last picture shows an extra transmission that came with the car. The shifter box is Hurst parts, but Al said the car came with a Hurst shifter. There is a bench seat Hurst shifter handle in the box so it seems to make sense.

I assume this was some kind of Canadian Happy Dance!! (No twerking:-)

If you are reading this from the sunny south it was minus 27C feels like minus 37C......I was warm at Al's as I was jumping around using the jack, etc, but when we got back home I was frozen solid in about 10 minutes:-(

We filled up the Tuscon with all the loose items, including the warranty block.....she sat a little low.....

Here is the straight handle Hurst shifter:-)

Felt pretty good as the winch pulled me up the tilt/load ramp, I flat-shifted into second a few times, and did some vroom vroom sounds:-)

I will find out the timing/dates as I piece together the cars history but recently Al and Lynn's daughter set up to do automotive training classes with the W31 and Al bought an extra 350 Olds, and trans to install as part of this class. before they got the car running again the class came to an end so the car was transported home just before trying to run it:-( The 3 inch stainless exhaust with X crossover was installed with headers as part of this effort.

Talking about all the fun Al had with his W31 back in the day.

I am a list guy, Dan Vasic sent me about 15 E-mails with W31 content so I could prepare for pick up day, every question was answered with, nope the original is on the car, or nope the original is in a box:-)

Al is still looking for the jack, etc.
