Is that the Van Nuys Plant at the 10:20 mark?
Restoration / Re: '67 Door striker post nut plate needed (??)

If this is the part you're looking for (see below), it's the threaded plate behind that panel and was part of the "Body Lock Pillar Reinforcement Panel" installed by Fisher Body, I believe the service part number was 4469685 ("Plate, Door Striker Anchor"), but I'm not positive about that, and it's been long since discontinued. I also don't believe anyone is reproducing these, so your only option is to find one used.

Not even sure what it's called, but I need the left-side plate that goes in the door post, and the striker threads into.
Anyone know what/where to get? Thx

With BY, that top would look OK. But not with that interior.

67-8 had gold interiors. 69 went to green. Times were a-changing.

I was a bit confused about the post as I was searching out the color of the drums on a drum brake car, so some clarification please. From what I understand after reading; the drums are to be painted black front and back(mine is a 68), but the front backing plates are plated where as the rear backing plates are black along with the axle assembly? Thanks

Maybe one has to be an engineer (looking for appreciation?) to enjoy that video!  :)    I did enjoy it!  :)

The car in question was definitely a special order. The selection chart in the ordering info has this statement:

This procedure does not apply to orders that specify a vinyl roof cover or two-tone paint as combinations shown are the only combinations that have been approved.

The dealer could over-ride any paint/interior combo on the chart by noting it in the special instructions section. But not vinyl roof combos. Brown is noted: Gold and Brown exterior colors only.
