Downloading the app-thanks for the info

One last tip, and I'll quit taking up so much of your time - when you resize, pick something like 640 X 480 for the sizing - good fit with resolution to spare. Click and drag your file and resize - it will save a copy in whatever folder you want to place it, you can rename and store from there. Works for me -

So your transmission looks good. The "9" is for model year, not build date. So a m-21 built December 28 of 68 , motor looks ok jan 8th, the rear end I am having a tough time with the C PM 1024. At this point it looks like your car is ok except for the rear end possibly.

No problem. I fully understand the excitement of chasing down info, especially when you've been waiting to get your hands on the car for a long time. I felt the same way when I brought home the last one, a '68 Z, even though I had worked on the car for 16 years, and fully documented it when my buddy bought the car. Still a tingle when you get one home after trying for so long a time -

Congratulations on landing a great car - looking forward to seeing it. Keep on posting -

I gotta think you got one of the better cars he has stored away. What other cars does he have worth mentioning?

Looks pretty straight from this angle. Sure has been in storage for a while - like that dust. At least the car was in the south - any farther north, and it might not have survived the road salt during storage.

If that's an original right side mirror, it's rare to see. Looks like the rims are 15's - be great if they are YH's. Car looks to be fairly intact.

Cowl hood is questionable on the January cars, but it's possible. It would have been pretty early, a lot of dealers weren't aware at this point that they could be ordered.
