Ed, other than the holes in the front for the bell crank, is there any other cosmetic differences?

Thanks,
Paul

I've made the inners that are welded to the frame out of 4130 Chrome Moly steel, they held up great for the past 10 + years.

 I thought  a Vendor was re-popping them as well. Try this, but no photo.

I'll try to see if I have pictures of mine before I took it a part. The thing that I remember most, was thinking this "white" was going to be a pain to replace, compared to if it was black.

Seems like there's a book out there that references that parchment had the white, while the ivory had the black trim. I'll dig through my references and see if I can find it.

My posts where black. As Ed stated, seats and panels were white. Window crank knobs were also white on mine. Car is 04D

Now that I think about it, seems like some of the trim/lace around the headliner was white as well. I'd have to dig through my boxes to be sure about that though.

Jon,

I purchased a set from  Larry Christensen, within the past 2 years; I believe he had a couple of sets left.

Well, I got it back together and the high RPM vibration is better, but it didn't go away.  It sounds like something in the tranny is binding or out of balance.  I've never had a car do something like this.

Paul, How was your pilot bearing?

Holy Cow! They sure didn't fool around getting it ready. In the Auction pictures the exterior was nice but the engine compartment was pretty rough.

Anything in the database on these Vin's?

124379N570153

124379N549388

I can't remember which Vin went with which car, but both of these sold I believe the date was Feb 11Th at the PA Commonwealth Auto Auction.  It was a sell for confiscated vehicles as well as State vehicles.  The Pictures were not that great on the preview sell, but both were run through the auction as believed to be original. 1 was 69 396 and the other was a 69 Z28. Both went in the $29,000 - $30,000 Range. Someone I know was there, but went to high for him.  We are both trying to get the posted results, will update if I get them.
 I can't believe I didn't save the pictures to my computer.

If your going to do it yourself, be careful on the press, you can easily crack the pump housing. I practiced on a few old worthless pumps and was surprised how quick you could screw up and crack the housing. If it's a rare hard to find or original pump, might want to send it to the pro's.

From the ad:

" The seats and door panels have been reconditioned and re-dyed, but they are the OEM pieces."

I wouldn't have taken that as meaning Original seat covers. Agree, maybe they should have been clearer, but from a Dealer, I would never expect that. 

If we are going to bring up the stellar reputation of RK I feel I should give my input.

 Great car but not orig. seat covers as stated in their ad. They bought the car from a good friend on mine and he told them he had the seat covers made for him at great cost yet they sold it as orig. seat covers. They were even reminded of it when they were selling it. They might be great guys but that type of sales tactic does not instill trust.

The first tag looks fake, but I'm not as good as most on this site. Maybe Kurt will give his opinion.
