So your just losing the middle shifts, since the ratio of gears are farther apart?

No Austin..  our M20/3.73 cars would beat your thru ALL the gears...   :)   :)

I look forward to more pics

Great pics. How many miles are on it now?
My car is also heavily undercoated. My car went to Ziebart on day 2. What kind of process was that to remove all of it?

The striping detail (or lack there of) in the trunk and engine compartment is unbelievable - really shows how restored cars are way too perfect in these areas...

Awesome information paceme.

Removal of undercoating was done by carefully heating and using plastic scraper,s followed by a kerosene bath and towels. Just and FYI, this is not something I will ever attempt. I know some have uses a high pressure steam cleaner.

Just curious, I may never get to it myself. I have heard it is an involved process. I imagine the underside could be pristine, if all of it came off though. Do you have any before and after pics of the process?

Very nice. Looks like somebody or somebodies had some time into it, to get it into its current state.(looks like you could eat off of those floor pans) Was Evaporust used on some of the surface rusted parts, or what did you use to bring back the natural finishes?
Did you find an assembly line number on the inside of the wheels, or any other parts of the body, similar to other unrestored cars? pics if possible

The previous owner had the undercoating removed and it was rather costly, but as you stated the floor pans were preserved. Evaporust was used to minimize oxidation, and a boeshield type product was used as a preservative. Can't recall seeing a job # but the spare tire is dated Feb of 69 and manufactured at the Goodyear Gadsen plant.
