My brother bought about the same car awhile. More miles but working factory air. It was about 5k.

I read an article about installing one in a first gen and it did require tunnel mods but it was denting it not cutting it. I may bid on it if the price is right. The gasser I have not built yet would be cool with 488,s and the hone. Big block, 400 turbo, PS, AC, 488,s, and Hone OD.

I have been using 303 on my new boat and on my cars about a year now. I like it. Hope the uv claim works. It does soften vinyl and kind of dries so it is not so slick feeling. Kind of pricey but autozone has sales on it a lot.

Does look good. Pics are not that great. I would look in person first.

Good old dishwashing soap and a soft brush. It says it is even kind to sensitive hands.

Maintenance / Re: Coil Issues

In the early 70,s we only had points and crappy wires. If you drove your car on the street a while the misfire around 4500 started. We called it (busting out). Fresh plugs, and I mean fresh would straighten it out. We carried a new set for money street races. Someone had a spark plug sandblaster that helped a lot, small unit with a grommet hole for the plug. Then came Accel points and the big yellow Accel super coil the hung on the firewall. You also have to remember the tune up intervals when cars had points. When HEI started the selling point on new cars was no tune up for 20,000 miles. I think some guys might have weak coils but some just have original equipment old cars.

Don,t let your excitement overwhelm your judgement. It may not be unmolested. The grill and the shine on that color makes me think it has at least be repainted. I doubt the stripe is original and there could be hidden rust repairs. At 50 years old 20 year old make overs can look original.

I think I would hit it with the good old wire brush first so the loose stuff does not slow down the evaporust treatment.

Although I don,t have the car anymore I think there were some clips that pushed on the metal of the package tray. I do remember it was not very neat.

Has anyone tried the calipers from Harbor Freight? I would use one very little but the price is right. I would just use it for general things, not engine clearances or things like that. I have their temp laser and it works great and one of the magazine tests rated it very well. Just trying to do better than a cresent wrench and steel ruler.

Neat story. Odd it sat on the lot that long but I have heard stories about that before. I would think the papers would show a huge discount. I remember here a super bird sat a long time before a local got it cheap. It was still ugly to me.
