SCW does great work, but it's out of the price range of many....

The interior shots often requested are the cuts in the carpet to install the seats and the melt pads (tar stuff) on the floor.
Thanks!

Car was very original with one repaint. Alt and starter aren't original.
Restored now. No WS that I know of, just the invoice, PDI, & POP.

LOS was a lot more complex with different equipment on the line. Having F bodies and full size cars coming down the same line must have been quite stressful.
No really. They design the line to handle it. The old Wixom plant made Continental (front wheel drive), Town Cars, and Lincoln LS - all on the same line.  FWD and RWD, full frame and subfame, all mixed.

I've not been on the forum of late.
#1 - Lsp3rd1982 - stop the swearing and the attacks or you'll be banned. It's not acceptable on this forum. From your posts, you still have a lot to learn about 1st gens.

As I've told the seller, the car is uncommon. L65 with a powerglide and 12-bolt.
Most buyers who paid the $20 for the L65 also paid the $25 for the better trans (TH350). The base engines often had the powerglide, not so with the optional engines. The 12-bolt was just a lucky substitution - there probably was a supply issue in this timeframe.
The L65 was a low-po engine, one step up from the 307. Good engine, but not a powerhouse, so that rant about it is off-base.
The 'rarity' of the car would be a conversation topic at a car show. Doubt it would show in the value other than the 12-bolt value. I highly doubt anyone would restore the car back to original. Most buyers would be after the body and axle and may not use the original engine, IMO.
Personally, I'd use the original block, build it like a L48 with a 200-4R trans. :)

There's several things to check. Wiring is #1.

Going through my pictures and only listing the axles were the C was visible and clear. If it wasn't a good pic, I didn't make a call.
Interesting that there are dates like CBU0829 that are both peened and not peened. 1 BE was peened, several weren't.
FWIW, late 69 BB engines also had the C added to the application code.

Edited, a lot.
Simple rules to this post - post facts and data. Postulate after data is accumulated.

The housings are pressure cast aluminum... just like a muncie side cover, tailshaft housing, steering box cover, and valve covers.
The finish of these parts (aka die cast) are totally different from sand castings. That's why an original Muncie case looks very different than the tail housing.

Originality / Re: L35 Dipstick Color Code
« on: September 17, 2018, 03:04:06 PM »
Dipsticks were a commodity and had multiple suppliers (two main ones, IIRC).
So even if one vendor was primarily used in a plant, the other vendor also supplied the plant too.....
