Slim - Perhaps you recall last week's thread
where I went into far greater detail about this car.
As for more pics, it's still 350 miles away from me until the 15th, so I'm limited to pictures I have already taken. Most of them are close up of problem areas that need to be addressed which I doubt would be of as much interest to others...
Here are some of them though, if you're still interested:
34 years of dust:
A little bit cleaner:
The chain was how it was dragged out of the hole in the side of the warehouse:
Don't worry, I'm not keeping the snow tires. But I can assure you that I intend to re-chrome the bumper:
You can see a little cancer behind the wheel here. That's project for next year though:
The original factory roof still works, but it does need a bit to make it perfect:
You can see that the "N" is held on by a single pin and the "G" is missing. I'll have to figure something out there:
The engine compartment looks about as you'd expect for an older car:
And with a few hours of effort the engine fired right up:
The trunk is in pretty good shape, although dad had a sheet of plywood over the tank. Sort of a late 60's wooden version of tank armor. The wiring is presumably related to wiring up the trailer hitch:
This is the inside. The registration on the floor is from '79, the last time it saw daylight or temperatures other than 66-70°F:
This is the full picture from above:
The original seats and carpet all look in fine working order:
And I have no idea if there were any rear mats, but the original front mats still have life left in them:
And lastly the contents of the trunk. This includes the hubcaps and the smog pump. (I'm told that the smog pump was not required in NJ in '68 but it was added anyway. It was removed within the first week):
