Maybe kinda tough to see, but I put '70 mirrors (R&L, driver remote) on my '69 in '75. Other mods (which fortunately for the car never happened) were planned aftermarket "T" tops (the rage in mid '70's, mfg. by Hurst and others), custom grille with square headlights, black paint with gold highlights/panels; I did install an in-dash AM/FM CB, plus a column mount Sun Super tach. Removed the console, installed a Mr. Gasket Pro Shifter, recarpeted with fuzzy shag black carpet. I was proud of it, still am considering I should be shot for what I did to it, or for what I wanted to do to it - at least most of the car made it this far fairly intact.
In 1979/80, I learned what the X77 stood for on the cowl tag, so mods ceased and recovery began - still at it all these years later.
It struck me as funny that I was just sharing some pics from back in the day and the conversation turned to "mods" we did or saw. Normally, I would be embarrassed to show what my mods were going to be, but here goes with the following pics. I will remind you guys that I always appreciated originality, even when I was 18. I did not like "hacked up" cars then or now. The blue car pics are the "born with" engine with some idea where I was going with the car mods. Ended up putting the setup on the Yellow car for awhile, but now that setup is on a shelf. I kept all the original parts by the way including manifolds and air cleaner, Thank God. Will post current pics of yellow car later.
