I pulled out the plywood and moldy 3 inch foam under the plywood. I found the floor of my trunk. It needs a little work. But it could be worse.

Mine got new trunks...
There wasn't anything left to salvage. If we did the trunks would have all kinds of scars...

Thanks. It is in really good condition. I am going to give it a tune up in the next few days. Vacuum the trunk and degrease the engine.
It drives pretty good but it is kinda hard to start.

I like your Grande. We have the same interior because the person that had the car before me put a Grande interior in it.

I de-greased the engine today and vacuumed out the trunk. I can see through the trunk in about a 1/2 gap. It is hard to start but runs good after it is going. Click image for larger version

Alright, I'm not trying to be rude, but do you know how to properly start a carbureted car?
Also, to check the choke take the breather off and looking in the carburetor there's a thin metal flap over two of the barrels. When you start it have someone watch the flap while you press the gas pedal 4-5 times, before you crank it. If the flap doesn't move then your choke isn't working. If it works then let your engine run to operating temp. If the flap doesn't go back your choke is sticking...

Awesome thank you. Don't worry you haven't been rude at all. I didn't know how to check the carburetor.

Alright, if you know this great, if you don't it's good advice.
When you crank it, crank it in 5 second bursts. Just letting it crank and crank and crank will destroy your starter, mine did on my impala. It's my original Delco starter so I'm going to get it rebuilt

I just about ruined my starter today trying to get it started at the car wash. I will have one of my friends check out the carb with me. I have a feeling you are right about it opening.

My dad thinks spraying it out with carburetor cleaner will do the trick.

Alright I'll give you my starting processes, it's going to be long. Sorry in advance...
Take the breather off spray brake cleaner in the carburetor, tap the gas 4-5 times, crank...
Tap the gas 10-15 times, quickly, crank it, sometimes it won't hit just hold the throttle to 1/4, still doesn't then try 1/2...
Tap gas 4-5 times, crank it holding the gas to the floor, remember 5 second bursts...
But always keep in mind you could flood the engine, it takes some practice...
The choke on my impala doesn't work but now I'm used to it...

Also there is gas around my carburetor. I'm thinking I need to replace the gasket.

If you take it off, it would be a perfect opportunity to have it checked, to see if the carb needs rebuilding...

That is elaborate - you have to do this every time you start?

The carb float could also be bad, letting the carb flood.

Rebuilding starter motors = fun.

If you have gas around the carb you should have that taken care of first. And I would also suggest you rebuild the carb or have it done. If your leaking gas most likely you are sucking in air. Also gas leaking a motor is just not a good situation Just my 2 cents worth. Thanks

No, it's because it's the original engine, and it's 50 years old. It's the original carter afb carburetor on it, that I refuse to change. I'm going to rebuild the carb when I get back to KY...

Thanks. I am excited to share with everybody here. It's not everyday somebody gets their dream car as a project.

The carb is 2b and I might just replace it. I want something higher flowing anyways.

Elderbrock or Holley is the way to go, but if you get a bigger carb it's a very good idea to get an aluminum intake as well...

So many parts to replace. I was thinking 750 cfm.

What are your thoughts on manual vs electric choke?

Electric chokes are good, but I'm more of a traditionalist when it comes to classics. If you have one installed then make sure the installer knows what he's doing. Then again Eledbrock might offer a 750 with an electronic choke, you might call and see...

It was a joke...

I don't have a choke. Just floor it for 2 secs. 1 quick pump and start. Works like a charm.

Ah it will okay now you can build the motor any way you want. I would only worry about it being the correct motor if you are going to sell it.

My friend that is perfectly ok, have the 351 stroked to a 396, make the car what you want. No opinion matters about your car, except your own...
