Default Pulled Intake & Valley Cover.

I finally found one piece of plastic from the old cam sprocket, it was lying in a recessed area in the upper part of the valley. It must have been thrown up there from a rod through one of the open holes along the camshaft I'm guessing? Weird!

Default Casting Slag?

Check out this one intake port... has a hunk of slag right in the middle and the opening is partially blocked/unfinished. Not sure why my photos aren't loading right-side up?

Default Gloomy-Rainy day progress update...

Got that intake port booger removed and lightly cleaned up the edges of the other ports. Did a little more engine degreasing and then started bolting the parts back on. Found an NOS Delcostat t-stat through eBay, tested and installed. Cleaned up the inner fenderwells, jambs and top of core support. Radiator re-cored, painted and back in place. All new coolant hoses and some other items back on.

Default Carb...

Sent my original filthy carb to Eric for a rebuild and repairs. It looks great and is on the way back to me now. While cleaning up the air cleaner I noticed that it still had the original FB-54 breather filter, but the element was long gone. I cleaned it up and installed a new element into it to keep it in place.

Default Distributor, Wires & Vacuum Lines cleaned up.

I used paint thinner to clean up the distributor, wires and cap. Installed new points, condenser and rotor... hoping the original cap is still usable. Found one wire (cyl #7) that wasn't original. After some research, I discovered it was a Ford wire. Currently looking for a matching 2-Q-67 wire that I can replace it with. Cleaning the vacuum lines revealed the original stripe colors, all were light green except one was turquoise to the smog pump. They are very hard and stiff so I ordered replacement color striped hoses from Inline Tube.

Wow wow wow!
Signet gold 67 4 Speed with old Torq Thrusts, and the whole car a survivor!
It doesn't get getter than this!
The old steering wheel is also very cool! Covico?
Looks a lot better than the newer ones from Grant.

I wanted to buy a gold 67 years ago. Nearly signed the deal, but the owner got weird and wanted more money, even we made a agreement before. I have a old pic if u want to see it. Was a switzerland model.

Congratulations to this obe of the most beautiful cars ever! 101 thumbs up!

I would buy it right away!

I'm not sure, I didn't see any name on the wheel itself, but the 3 bolts that mount the wheel to the hub do have a "G" on them. Along with the wheels, he said that he installed it not long after buying the car new. Its in very nice shape.

Amazing car, great thread! Just curious, do those torq thrusts rub on the front fender wheel openings when turning?
