You can get excellent replacement Warranty Tags that say anything you like.

You're right about the shifter, too.


Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

I fully intend to build the way I want and wife can enjoy, thanks! As far as the next guy, I'll just point out the issues, he/she can take or leave it.

I have yet to pull the fenders. At first I though all VINs were visible from inside the engine compartment. I see that's not the case. I'll report back what I find.

If you decide to paint it, you should really consider the painter I used up in Sacramento. Guy does great work at a fraction of Bay Area prices.
