Possibly (Throttle rod), lets look at a few more angles.

Additionally, when the bypass clamps are shown are they the 67 style vice 68 as detailed in Jerry's book.

Ah ha, I think I see the orig hole in the firewall for the oil sender line, might have been re-routed during the warranty motor r/r/r (Remove/Repair/Replace)

OK, in the first photo above it looks like the fatter part of the throttle rod is in the back like it's supposed to be. I found it hard to tell in the other photos.

Resto Tip
Made some Powerpoint & MS Word 2" x 4" sticky Avery Labels for re-marking and tracking the million sandwich bags the car is spread apart in.

Yes, I got him the data & a good Pic Post CHP restoration & curve(ing) of the Dizzy.

I am missing the Orig Carb, Smog, Manifolds, bellhousing. Everthing else seems to be there.

One reason might be the ANTI theft Modification a previous owner made.
I think he had a cable ran thru the firewall to a handle to extend and retract the Latch stop he custom made. Neat idea.

Some Interior shots, interesting patterns, prime, paint and rust.

Surprisingly not a lot of rust repair was need or accomplished. Honestly I need to ask roger HOW they stored it, outside but under a carport?

That's the correct shift boot. No longer made or reproduced.
