Great to see this one find a good home in the NL. You have the right approach, get it street/roadworthy to enjoy, and go from there. Power steering/brakes, and AC; all the options you REALLY need anyway. When it comes time to paint, consider giving the roof a contrasting color, it really enhances the roofline, which is in '68 was quite nice.
Good to hear . And I figured the same on the options. Paint is a long way from now. But I was thinking of the same color gold on the car with a black roof. Like cbarge did with turbine red and black.
I agreed that the hardtop roof can really stand out with a different color. Especially with the chrome trim around the roof as a divider. As I have now.
This is the one I got recently. It sits on the back of the instrument panel and reduces the voltage to the fuel gauge.
Voltage Limiter Solid State IVR3
new one next to the old one:

I still need to get something figured out as my gauge is still not working right, but I think this was a step in the right direction.
Getting a solid state voltage regulator for under the hood is also highly recommended. I found one on eBay before I realized there is a person on this site that sells them too. I don’t recall the member, but I am betting someone will chime in.
I look forward to following your progress.
Thanks for the info. I will look into that! Do you know the resistance values of the float perhaps?
I already ordered a solid state voltage regulator from @FURYGT But thanks for the tip!
Let me know if you get the gauge working. I'm pretty curious what the problem might be.
