Steve, your last picture of the three - a few posts above - the left front corner of the gas tank appears to have a "dimple". Is this a tank drain? My car is also a 2D and my tank, to the best of my knowledge, is original (I bought my car with 57k in '77, no reason to suspect it's replacement). It has this drain, which I am very curious about.

That is just a dent. I haven't verified the tank date. I suggest that you verify the tank date. The drain may have been added at some point, but not from the factory.

I've got pics t post of my tank date and the drain, I'll find the thread and get them on this weekend the tank is dated 28 69
'69 X33 02D   Since 11-29-'77

Details are trifles, but trifles make perfection. And perfection is no trifle.

OK, back to Steves great car!
I assume since the radio, was mentioned as a dealer install, they would have had to drill the fender, wire up the speaker, and install the deck. I also assume the original owner brought the vehicle back for the motor bracket and cable, for the recall. Just curious since I have a large stack of my own invoices, if the original owner made continual visits to the dealership on a regular basis to see the car stayed in tip top shape or if it sat parked for a long duration of time? It seems that most of these original cars fall into one of these categories.

The radio was installed by the dealer and is listed as added on the invoice for $61.10. Interestingly enough it is a Motorola radio, that looks almost identical to the Delco. The radio brace was installed and the speaker is also similar. I wonder if there was some kit available. Regarding the antenna the dealer installed that as well.
