Let us not forget that the 79 Ford Pinto was posi-tively among the very first Mussel Cars!

Can't speak to the originality as a festival car or block stampings and t-tag. 

Other stuff - nose stripe looks a bit off at the break, and has the Ford CAUTION FAN sticker.  Shouldn't the center caps should be the "Disc Brakes" style?  Looks like the lower door hinges (roller with the Allen screw) were rebuild with the kits that always fail.  As an Ohio car, hard to say how much of the sheet metal is original.  Would be nice to see some bottom shots ands other stamps.

I can't find the old discussions here or at the TC site on this, but I believe the only difference is the rear side frame sections, where the power top is more beefed up.  Heres' a Firebird discussion which is probably the same:
The top is found in the Body by Fisher Service Manual, but I don't know if it details the differences.

Is the kick panel really as curved as it appears along the right edge of the AIM diagram?  If so, maybe the spacers were just used at the top to make it more vertical, or to prevent the speaker from bending to the curve of the panel and getting damaged?

Are you asking about the top frame - power versus manual?

Very nice!  I wish I could still fit into my service uniform.

Are those white stripe inserts wide for a deluxe interior? They look like they are repro compared to original cars that I have seen.

Looks like someone tried to imitate the factory seat covers, probably back before they started reproducing them.

Looks to be a 4P on Trim Tag, so SS?

RS badging on center cap of steering wheel, fuel cap, and hood would be incorrect then, probably more I missed.  So I'm thinking not, maybe an L30 if it is a 4P.  More likely a 4F remote driver side mirror but pics are distant.  Hard to tell what is on the TT in position 4.

I don't see the 9425299 bolts listed in the AMK catalog (which would have given dimensions).  Might be wrong, but I though the bolts/machine screws protruded though the threaded holes in the water pump flange?  Are you running out of threads on the bolt, or are the bolts not going through/out the back side of the flange?  Someone may have a set sitting in the garage which they can measure.

I may be wrong but I think parchment could have came with gold, or red, or a standard interior. Black may have been default if the exterior color was something with out a matching interior color. I am pretty sure I have seen parchment blue in a blue car. An example would a white car with parchment would have black while red car could have a red dash,etc.

In the sales brochure they only listed a Parchment/Black.

Sorry guys. Just posting what the seller was claiming.

Understood and no problem,  just pointing out the incorrect items in case you moved on it.  More leverage for a buyer or may change their mind before they get too enamored.  I'd like to see the trim tags and anything else they can send like block stamp, maybe a few closer top end engine detail shots, etc.  The seller may have a different idea of what survivor means.

Not sure a parchment and gold interior was offered.  I think parchment factory seats and door panels would come with black carpet, dash.  Then again, if the interior was redone it could be incorrect.

Neat car, same dealer as where mine was from, and sold about 10 days after my L48 rolled of the LOS line.  I read once that John Geer Chevrolet changed locations around 1966 or 67, so the documentation confirms where they were in late November 1966.

I don't believe the seat covers are original.  The gold factory covers had white accent striping, not black. One example of vendors selling incorrect parts.

Correct fuel cap for this early car would have the SS 350.  Some fender trim missing - crossed flags and 350.  Makes you wonder if fenders were replaced and if so, why. 

Looks like the fan shroud and driver side fender brace got butchered up a bit when someone installed a coolant recovery system.

Anyone have an opinion on the oil fill tube - painted or chrome?

The 03D: would that be 4th week of March in 66’ or67’ ?

1967.  Model year production ran from August to June/July, then they began changeover for the next model year to being in August again.
