Darrell,

Sharp car, good project.

This reminds me a lot of my X77 - unrestored, apart since '80, all there but scattered (LeMans/white no VT).

You forgot the pic with the date code on the jack head rivet -

Regards,
Steve

Darrell, What is the date code on the jack itself?

Rick - you beat me to the punch by a minute or two - I type at the speed of slugs -

Thanks Steve and Rick,  You all just educated me.  Didn't even know.  I did just find a rivet with 2 numbers...posting in a few. Hope this is it and how is it read ?

I believe this is the Jack date.  9C ?  would that be the 9th of March ?  Didn't even know it was dated   :-\

No problem Steve, We're all pretty excited about Darrell's new car. He can't keep us updated fast enough.

I'm enjoying it - really energizes me to start hauling stuff out of storage and into the light.

Man, I've got to get busy -

Keep it going, Darrell - you're doing good.

Between work, house chores, keeping mamma happy.. I've been about non-stop for several days now.   And I just discovered today that I left a box of BIG parts back at the current owners place.  We've talked and just trying to figure out when to get them.  It's the #480 distributor, smog pump, pulley and air tubes, #837 Alternator and deep-groove pulley, #668 Crank pulley, Water pump and pulley and exhaust manifolds.. DANG man I left half the engine there.  I had them in my hands moving them around and checking all the numbers.  I just set them off to the side and forgot them... I'm about brain-dead I think  :(

Thought this was interesting.  The original hood in excellent shape still (no dents or rust).  Remember the pics from the beginning where it was repainted the reverse colors.  Well I notice the original Dusk Blue just at the edge of the blue stripe.  Like it was part of the blue stripe itself with what looks like a masking tape line.   ???   just odd.
