Originality / Re: Green distributor paint?
« on: July 19, 2018, 11:45:33 PM »
Looking at my 65-69 book, green is correct for the 249.  The color codes (Colvins) are shown in the notes column for each distributor by model year.  Not all have a code, so may be unknown since they also have a code for no paint.  It also says the color to be used was called out on the Delco Remy blueprints and shows a couple examples.

His picture shows other blocks in the background.  I'm still thinking he attached the wrong stamp pad photo with this casting photo.

Is this a well attended event?  I'm down in Maryland, and considering driving up on Saturday, if there are a decent number of cars to view.

To me it looks like an overstamped V0120MS assembly date, but that is still way past the block casting date.  I'd question the seller if they posted the right picture for the casting date.  V0420MS would be pretty close to the car assembly date for that Norwood VIN.

Were any of the original aprons like this photo of an original Powerglide shield?  The sheet appears like the first few layers of the inside of a tire:

Vendor: Restoration Specialties  http://stores.restorationspecialties.com/
Part #: MAT014-WS  (All Black Rubber; 1/16" Thick Rubber With Fibers Used On Splash Aprons, A-Arms & Wheel Wells; 43" Wide)


As a follow-up, I received my order of this material from Restoration Specialties late last week. The formulation must have changed since others have ordered/used it - the material I received has a gloss finish with no visible fibers, its reminds me of a thick pool liner. NOT suitable as an OEM substitute for inner fender splash guards. Disappointing.   

Thanks for the feedback Lloyd.  Sorry to hear it wasn't suitable.

if you want ones that are correct, heavy with the cording in them, you have to make them yourself. 
The rubber is available... from restoration supply.

Is restoration supply a company? Do you have any details? Thank you, Joe

Joe, I just placed an order (by telephone) so I can't vouch for the authenticity of the material however here is what you need:

Lloyd, just wondering if you receive the material for Restoration Specialties yet, and if so, what you think of it?

It's also ways good to go back and review this, every so often.  There's even a picture or two.

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.

Restoration / Re: Convertible top differences
« on: June 01, 2018, 09:09:55 PM »
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:
https://firstgenfirebird.org/f-a-q/manual-vs-power-top-parts/
   
The top is found in the Body by Fisher Service Manual, but I don't know if it details the differences.

General Discussion / Re: Kick Panel Speakers - spacer
« on: June 01, 2018, 03:07:25 PM »
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?
