Yes. It will fit thru the trunk opening.

Keep in mind, M-20 does not always mean "Muncie".  On a 6 cylinder, or base V8 you would have a 4-speed "M-20" and get a 4 speed Saginaw tranny.

The speedo gear was matched to the specific vehicle long after the tranny was assembled so no need for a different part number.

Autolite 85 will work well.

I would expect the valve covers would be specified as part of the discrete engine suffix, not related to the "SS" package.

The VIN numbers do tell you that they are in the lost NCRS numbers so you might not waste your time. My 12A car does have the X code behind the seat but since the seller made a big deal of it I am not positive it was done at the factory.

Just an OT comment for you - The original grease crayon marks on mine were so old as to be dusty soft, almost "chalk like" in condition.  They could be 70% wiped away with a wipe of your hand.  You can't fake that age.  Fresh crayon is not going to be like that and none of it will be under old glue spray.  Your results may vary of course.

Whats an "M" code block?

Nice eye appeal.  Color changes really don't bother me much. I do like it better with the white top and stripes to match the interior.

My 1969 car is an early car, 11D of 1968.  The AIM UPC -10 is for a full sized spare, not space saver.  The AIM picture for convertible with N65 (space saver spare top of page 407) is very close to my original Jacking Instructions in the above picture.

Right, see it now.

abiddle,  My car is a convertible, so the position of the jack may be different in a coupe. The jack in your picture seems to be positioned too low.  Here is a picture of my original spare decal. 

Coupe is different mast position from either of the Convert diagrams.  Coupe is at an angle.  OP - The space saver spare tire/jack stowage instruction decal is different than than the regular full size spare instruction decal. See UPC N65.

BTW - The AIM UPC-10 for a convert jack stowage looks rather different than your picture.  Maybe your sticker is early vs AIM being late?

When in doubt, read the Chassis Service Manual!! In this case, start on page 1A-4 "AIR DISTRIBUTOR DUCT AND CORE - ALL VEHICLES (Fig 6)"

It has pictures and everything!!!


Yep, I know the "drill".  The manual says to destroy the inacessable stud and replace it with a modified replacement setup.  Your call.

He needs to get the box off first.  Fasteners are on engine bay side.  How else would you do it?

Unbolt the outer fender to inner fender bolts. Unbolt the lower rocker panel fender bolt. Push outer fender away and insert a piece of 2x4 to hold it open while you r&r the core. I had the water connections loaded up on brazing rod a lot to make it last a long time and it has not needed any attention in the last 30+ years. :)

I would look hard at that driver side rear exhaust hangar reinforcement plate.

Bill, I wonder if that grill emblem has been in the wrong spot, since the 60's.... ;D
