Nice car. Good find and nice one to see and get details. Like verifying block as 962 or a 961?

The Harrison Rad. I can see the finger guard. Any Tag still present on upper tank?

Looking forward to seeing Tranny partial vin an assembly date stamp. Same for REAR?

Trunk spatter paint. So many details that help all. And let’s not forget you may very well find an interior broadcast sheet or chassis build sheet once you dig into it.

Iíve had back seat out nothing there. Iíll look in doors. Iíve also heard they sometimes are tucked up under fender. Iíll post pic of rear ended numbers. Getting trans numbers today. By the looks of underneath Iím sure it original trans but Iíll verify.

Definitely check the underside of bucket seats. Stuffing n springs. Under carpet and behind door panels. Top of gas tank.

Thanks for actively sharing

Nice score! Any idea why the car was repainted in the original color so early on?

Didn’t take you long to remove those side pipes?

Love the front view photo!!

Body work, just fix rust spots, paint those areas and blend and buff it with the whole car. You can find a good body man to go around and do this. I had this done before. The rest of the body, leave it original how it was found. Great find.
I am a paint and body tech. This car has just the right patina. I wouldn’t touch the body or paint. Light interior work mechanicals and drive it I think is right way to go with this one. At least for a little while.
