I am re-assembling a 1970 coupe with a FMX auto tranny, 351 Cleveland, black interior, gunmetal gray outside. I have most all of the parts to re-assemble the car, however, it seems as though every other day I think of another necessary parts for the assembly. I have a minor list of parts needed for my re-assembly, however, I was wondering if anyone had a complete list of what I might need to buy? That way, I can buy all the parts that I dont have yet, at once, and hopefully not keep ordering every night (or almost every night).

Can you put up a list of what you have? We can't tell you what you need if we don't know what you already have. Hopefully what I just said makes sense.

I would advise against buying all your parts at once. You miss sales this way, and you also learn of better parts to get or brands of parts not to get as you continue reading. I bought all my interior parts early on (even though the interior will be the very last thing I do in this 3 year restoration) and now I regret it as I'm not using some of the parts now.

Good advice "Lizer" however, I am on crunch time to re-assemble my car :/.

I was just wondering if anyone had a general list of parts needed.

why such a rush?
i second the idea of putting the car together and buying parts as you need them, not all at one time.

would you rather be bored of working on it constantly, or anxious for your next parts order to get there so you can Continue working on it?
