First posting here and I'd like to thank CRG upfront for a FANTASTIC site. I can't imagine the amount of effort and resources that has gone into all this information!
With that said - here's what I have:
I just purchased a 1967 RS that was in a garage for 28 years (Lic. plates & inspec. sticker are from 1985)
I have the protecto plate/book and all the registrations from 1967-1985 (from the orig. owner) Car looks to be very orig. with exception of what looks like a skim cote of body filller and repaint that is maybe 30 years old (paint quality is pretty bad)
Trying to determine if this is a true L30/M20 car?
I think I've decoded everything except the rear end which has a 10 bolt cover and multi-leaf springs (I think this may be one of the few mod's. no trac bar or single leaf)
Engine is stamped T1007ML and matches the POP (327/275)
Bock is stamped 3903352
4 speed trans case is stamped R7R24 and matches the POP. Shifter has had a Hurst upgrade.
Cowl tag ties back to what the car is as it sits and matches the POP (Bolero Red, Black buckets, AM radio, etc.)
POP shows the trans and engine builds from 10/67 with a car build of 11/67 - so that looks good too.
My question comes back to the the cowl tag which in the lower left corner does not show a "4P"?
This is the only item that does not seem to tie into what I've read on the L30/M20 cars
Its pretty much untouched under the hood - lots of scale but runs fine. No build sheet under the rear seat- but I havent
pulled the seats yet.
Hoping this was a good buy and will be a great project for my son and I
Any input would be much appreciated - Thanks
