Default The 75 242 DL

I bought a supposedly running car from a forum member to replace my totaled 82 244turbo.

1975 242 DL with a B20, k-jet, auto, and only 49,800 original miles supposedly.

Here is the car when I got it.













Nothing worked on the car. Mold in the carpets. Rear calipers frozen, Distributor drive gear broke, Fiber gear was missing teeth. Engine was gross. Carbon build up and slugged oil. Gas tank rusted. Injector and feed lines ruined.









Rust on the headliner. Cleaned up some of it.





The interior was leaking water, hence the rust and mold. Fixed that problem.



Some quick paint in the bay.





Fresh carpet.







Added Better looking mirrors







Brand new GT (R-sport) gauge cluster to go in very soon.





Transferred the parts from another car, and my old totaled 244turbo.





Finishing rust removal and the under coating.











New seals:











Yoshifab x member. Modified.





Custom Drive shaft

Alignment. Left over 80-20 works great.


















First Trip to the station.

It took way to long to get it running, but it is running now.

Some wiring is left, and the supercharger and rear brakes. Then it will be done.

2.5 years of waiting to drive it. It is fun to drive.

Here is when it was first started after 2.3 years.



Without resonator. and first rebuilt fuel distributor I did. We Rebuilt Kjet distributor once, and cleaned out the injectors (thanks Ian). Also opened and cleaned the CPR. I bought a new rebuilt distributor because I had to open the other one back up again. Didn't have a new plate for it. Ran like crap the second time I took it apart.

I will have to get more videos later.

Thanks,

And thanks to all the people that helped me get it done. Me and my dad did most of the work.
somethings like machining and the drive shaft where out sourced. I learned(ing) to tig weld on this car.
Ian (hiperfauto) played a major rolled with awesome parts and advice.
Ben helped with custom awesome parts, and some other people not on this forum help source parts.

oh, and this is my daily drive so it will not see too much boost.
The pulley is designed to run the charger at 14,000 rpms (which is like 10 psi), but I can control that with the bypass valve on the charger.

probably 5-7psi. should be like 160 crank hp.

That looks amazing. I had no idea you put so much work into this car. I'm glad you finally got it all sorted out.

And what's this about a supercharger? You never said anything about it.

This car is hands down the sexiest 240 I have ever seen. That interior is the sex.

lol, I didn't want to say anything about it till I figured out what I was doing.
But it is fun to throw in a teaser image here and there.

The car was suppose to be a quick put together and drive it as it was, we had parts ordered to fix the B20, so that is why it stayed.
It took a month of trouble shooting to figure out why it would not start. We were tempted to rip it out and stick a V8 to match the transmission in the car now.

I like the idea of the original engine in it also... Plus, not many people have a 75 242 with an Eaton supercharged B20 ;)
I haven't seen one yet...

The underside of the car was in pretty good shape for the most part. There was mostly surface rust. I used a wire brush on some parts, but most was taken care of by that rust removal/primer chemical (jasco). seemed to work okay. I believe it was SEM brand Rubberized undercoating.

Edit:
I used goof off, and acetone to the underside after the clean up so the undercoating had a better stick. Then I did a very light coat of summit racing black spray paint over the undercoating.

The axle was a more wire brushing. a lot more rust on that part.

Oh finally!

I liked this car from the beginning, even from the progress pictures of the 244 turbo you could tell this 242 is in good hands.
Although I was a bit curious about the titan rimpz on it at first. Fortunately you did not disappoint me!
Tasty, classic looking with a perfect ride height and a pushrod engine.
Hats off for you and your father, really nice work!

I hope this one won't get messed up by some idiot driver...
