C. Nice car very original! My buddy in High School had one just like it!
As for that seat I believe I would try and repair, a good competent interior shop could do that.
Beautiful car that just needs driven!

So quick update here.
This car has the Tri- volume horn U03. Two of the horns were installed upside down and did not work. Sent them to The Horn Works for reconditioning.
Installed them correctly per A.I.M. and BAM!! Holy Horn Balls! It sounds like a freight train in your face. Wish I could post a sample beep for you all.
Impressive! On to the next fix!

LOL ;D...great analogy! A video/audio would be nice, but probably wouldn't get the FULL FREIGHT TRAIN affect! lol (thumbs up)

If you wanna text me a short clip of the horn action and maybe also show all 3 horns; I'll host it on my youtube channel and share a link here.  Just a thought.

Pm me and I'll give you my number.

Yep, sounds AWESOME! I'd say the standard 2 horns sound pretty healthy, but the 3rd gives it that freight train effect.lol :D

Hey Craig, is that hood release arm painted black or any evidence? I've long thought 68's were, but haven't come to a definite conclusion...

Thanks Guys!

The release bar looks to have been black originally. Paint is worn off in areas.
