Thanks all. I've already decided I'm certainly fixing it myself. It's just a matter of going thru probate unscathed. Shouldn't be an issue- everyone in the family is in agreement.

Ain't no fun in viewing your car as an 'investment'. Get out there and beat on it!

I’m sorry for your loss. Even if the engine lost a cam lobe, it will be a labor of love and you will make it right. Enjoy every minute of it.

Echoing the sentiment of sorrow for the loss of your Grandpa, for you and the entire family. 70 was way too young.
My dad passed 10 years ago, almost to this day, from lung cancer too.

Sorry for your loss, hope you can get the car roadworthy for him.

Lost my dad in 2020 from COPD (smoking) and some other health stuff and Covid finished him off.
