1967 Family Patrol Project

Builds, refurbishments, restorations, upgrades

Postby faux40 » Mon Apr 22, 2019 11:37 am

Happy Monday All!

I've been thinking about this for quite some time... We have way too many Patrols. It's gotten to the point where we have no real space to work on them... So I just ignore them while they stare at me through my office window!

If there is any hope getting Aerogirl repaired and back on the road in my lifetime, we need to cull the herd. Ultimately, we need a single Patrol and just the needed spare parts. All our other Patrol goodies should go to other good homes! I'm hopeful that this will get the ball rolling again and inspire us to get our Aerogirl project back on track!

Let me know if you are interested.

1967 Patrol Soft top OMG! Look at how young and small my kids were when we got our first Patrol!
1569
- Chevy V8 (no idea what displacement or condition)
- Chevy Engine to Patrol transmission adapter and engine mounts
- No transmission/transfer case (we used them in Aerogirl!)
- Damaged firewall -- whoever installed the V8 hacked the firewall to make it fit. I think they used an axe to do it! ;-)
- Replacement firewall (from the '66)
- Soft top frame including the over-door things
- No seats or dash
- Uncut fenders
- Tires probably have zero miles on them, but are flat and a million years old.
- Current CA Registration (Non-Op)


1966 Hardtop
4649
- Complete, but poor condition
- Engine appears complete but no valve cover... Will need lots of love!
- Stock 3-speed/Xfer Case, etc
- Seat frames (covers bad shape)
- Cut fenders
- Bill of sale only. Not registered.


1966 Hardtop - Frame and axles only
1903
(Firewall has since been removed and will be sold with the '67 soft top)
- This frame should go with the other '66 hard top
- Body panels are all gone.
- Matching VIN plate included
- Current CA Registration (Non-Op)


SPARES
- Rebuilt engine (0 miles -- SN matches the '67 hard top, have receipts)
- Resurfaced flywheel, rebuilt clutch, pilot, throwout bearing
- Gas tank (appears to be in very good condition... perhaps already cleaned and coated)
- Rebuilt E-Brake band & resurfaced e-brake drum
- Boxes of transmission/transfer case parts
- Windshield frame (no glass)
- 15" split rims (with hubcap tabs)
- Even more Patrol parts... but I need to open all the boxes to figure out what is there!

Check my gallery as I have posted pictures and the story behind just about everything listed here. Shoot me a note if you need specific pics or more info.

Thanks!

Hey amigo, id love to buy a transmission imput shaft off you that might work for a 69 patrol (want a dummy input shaft to start working on a pilot bearing repair), and if your gas tank is in good condition i'd buy that as well. I'm in wa state and shipping wouldn't be outrageous. What would you want for them?

I would be very interested in the gas tank. It's more than a long shot, but when you open up your boxes and 2 windshield wiper motors (singles) are there, please also keep me in mind. Also, any original extra seat belts. I just need the hardware so that I can run new webbing through then. I'll send you a PM. Don.

It's been a long crazy few months...but then that seems to be the new normal. Anyway, I finally removed the tires from the split rims... used a sawzall to cut them off! The rims without tires are still quite heavy, but at least then should be ups shippable (in individual boxes).

I'd like to see them to to a good home... Some are kinda rusty, some are not-so rusty. Actually, I can't promise condition, so how about this...

Free if you pick them up here in Sunny Roseville, $50 plus shipping if I have to box them up and ship them!

They even have the little hubcap clips

Last chance on the split rims (I think they even have the super-rare hubcap nubbies on them -- Basically free to good home. You just need to pay to pick them up or pay for shipping

Next -- and more importantly -- we've started working on our Patrols again!

The parts Patrol is now down to a frame and axles. This way, they can be stored in much, much less space which means Aerogrl can be moved out a little and we can fix the damage to the front end and update the brakes that resulted in its bumps and bruises!

This is the "BEFORE" image of our Green '66 Patrol
1580

And the "AFTER" image -- This, and the steering column are all that is left of that '66. All the other parts have been spread around the Patrol world (River has something, Bosque has parts and...). As for now, the plan is to recondition this frame then build our other '66 onto this frame. (This is Pete -- He loves to play fetch. Now if I could only get him to bring me the correct tool!)
6479

These springs are pretty much dust at this point - One of the eyes is completely broken off and there are a few cracks in the leaves... They're on their way to be recycled into something new and exciting! (aka, the dump)
6477

Speaking of dust -- When I tipped the frame over, this pile fell out of the cross-member while the frame was up on it's side. A few rust flakes, but mostly just dirt
6478

Kinda excited to get rolling again!

Nice!

After getting the body back onto the chassis of my 66, I realized that I only have one frame/chassis left to restore (the 62's) and that fact gave me much joy, because next to bodywork, de-rusting the frame is the second most "I hate it" task associated with re-doing one of these rigs.... 8-)

STOP! Well, I wish Joe had been able to when he ran into that tree with our Patrol... ;-)

Our plan for updating the brakes on Aerogirl is moving along... well, I'm thinking about it lots! There is no question that we'll be switching to a dual master cylinder. We may... or may not... use a vacuum booster as I'm also likely to switch to front disks. Aesthetically, the booster cantilevered way out isn't ideal... but it does look much better than the crashed front end! The rears will probably remain drums.

Now, the big question... while doing the hydraulic shuffle, I'm thinking of switching to the later hydraulic clutch system -- I know Rob prefers mechanical... less to leak! But, I love the absolute simplicity of the hydraulic system! Plus, my mechanical linkage is nothing short of lumpy. It has never had a good feel.

Can someone share some close up pics of the hydraulic clutch system for me? Specifically how the slave mounts to the bell housing and where the hose mounting tab is located (where the steel pipe ends and the rubber flex-hose starts) -- the pics in the manual aren't so clear. Also, if someone has a firewall with both master cylinders removed, a head-on shot of the mounting points would be awesome too so I can create a drill-template.

Lastly, does anyone have a spare clutch slave cylinder bracket? Or, can someone loan me theirs so I can duplicate it?

Under my Montana Patrol gallery in the body reassemble set, there is a pic showing the firewall with no master cylinders installed. I may have a spare slave cylinder bracket also floating around. Will have to dig in a couple of boxes of "stuff". If you need measurements of firewall holes let me know.Under the Montana Patrol gallery, there is also a pic of the slave cylinder and bracket not installed but bolted together.

Thanks for the pics! I still can't visualize how it mounts to the transmission! I'd really appreciate it if you can take those firewall measurements! And yes, if you have an extra bracket...

Thanks!

I made a little REAL progress on the Patrol today!

I took the radiator support and radiator out today. You can see the damage to the front ends of both frame rails.

Here's the damaged parts

And the fan-print on the radiator

Close up of the worst part... OUCH!
