I am new here and once I figure how to post pictures I will share. I am Refreshing a 67 base coupe with 230, 3 on the tree and only option is am radio. My mother in law is orginal purchaser and she gave to me as car was driven daily from 67 to 1974. The car sat since 1974 and about 2 months ago I dropped fuel tank and cleaned and changed oil and fluids and made shore breaks released. pulled plugs and WD40 in holes and verified engine spun. Sprayed start fluid in carb and jump boxed it and it started on first crank. Smoked for a while and I then drove it 1 and 1/2 hours to my home. Thanks for reading.

Back in the '67-'70 time frame, my father had a '67 coupe, with the 250 6 cylinder engine, 3 speed stick, with the floor mounted shifter, as well as the HD suspension, disc brakes (which came with the rally wheels), posi rear end, and the D70-14 red stripe Firestones. I took my drivers test in '68, in that car. Even though it only had the 6 cylinder engine, which the driving test person didn't know, the car looked hot, and I think he made up his mind to flunk me, even before I drove an inch.....

I am not having any luck  loading pictures. I have many pictures now as I removed front clip and rebuilt and detailed etc. I rebuilt engine and improved cylinder head for unleaded gas usage. Just put engine and subframe back into body. I will try pictures later. Embarrassed

Also yes i have all paperwork,invoice,protecta plate,mother in law is a horder  Grin. Funny story is my mother in law thought this whole time she had the <upgraded 6 cylinder> and I informed her it was the base 230. She stated NO I told the salesman I wanted a manual and V8 but the extra cost was almost 3 weeks of her pay. Cashier at A&P  Roll Eyes. Salesman showed her 2 6 cylinder cars and she stated I want the upgraded 6 cylinder. Guess what, the dealer just put the 250 air cleaner on the 230 car and sold it to her. They wrote upgraded engine on invoice Shocked.
