    i want to get this car running, but i am not interested in pulling the engine and doing a complete work over. i have made a list of a few things that i think need to be replaced since the car has been sitting so long. I was wondering if you guys had some experiences/suggestions as to what a car like this would need replaced. or if you guys knew a good site to help me through this project.

    so far:

    radiator hoses
    fluids
    alternator
    vacuum lines
    starter?
    timing chain tensioner??
