Nice looking car, great color combo with the white guts and stripe. I suspect the buckets with column shift auto will hold some bidders back. All it needs is shorter rear springs to get it sitting...

Just got my head back from the machine shop, changed a few valves that had stem wear (luckily found them NOS with the rockers (followers?)). Probably was running zincless oil. Gave it a shave of 10...

Nice car, 455 HO, 4 speed and Black are big pluses. Negatives to my eye include 4 wheel drive stance (easily fixable) and it not being a Ram Air car from the factory. The rear window defroster...

Ouch! Too bad but on a positive note the height of the impact seems to have avoided hitting the frame directly. Also the hood looks safe (very hard to replace nowadays). Bumper, rad support,...

I believe the retention clips catch the brake pedal support bracket. The wire harness with fuse in line looks like a tach feed.

Pretty solid looking, especially for a north east car and the interior looks pretty good with no visible rips in seats or door panels and even the dash area is surprisingly intact.

Never realized how expensive the 2+2 option was. Add that to the base price and you are right there with a Bonneville convertible, this is probably what doomed the 2+2.

What were the changes in the chrome remote mirror between 69-70 and 71-72? My assumption is that the knob and bezel changed but did anything else change?

Were there any changes in the non remote?...
