    It’s a T code, standard 440. I’ve been using it as a model to help me put the ‘vert project back together. Originally it was to be a parts car, but decided to keep it whole. I plan on getting it drivable and then selling. It needs a lot of rust repair, but I have most of the repair panels, just not sure I’m up to doing the work or including them in the sale.

    One feature is the side marker lights, which are positioned lower on the body panels on a 69 vs a 70 and 69s got the back up lights installed in the rear bumper, whereas 70s got them on either end of the tail lamp panel. The 69 rear markers are only reflectors, but that´s not easily distinguished by eyes. Only 69s of Fusie 300s have ``THREE HUNDRED`` spelled on the rear quarter panel in block letters. 70 2 dr hts were not available with vent wings at all, but they come as standard on a 69 2dr without A/C and were available as power-operated with power side windows.

    On the picture above you see the Deluxe steering wheel, which was only available in 69 and it was an option on other models than New Yorker. The tilt/tele wheel is otherwise the same, but the spokes are straighter and the center hub is convex instead of concave. The door panels are the only ones with single chrome trim that circles the round 300 badge on three sides, but have no door pull straps like were installed to 70-71s. Also you can see that the white 2dr has no ignition lock on either the steering column or on the dash panel to the right of the column, so it must be on the left side of the steering column, which was the location of ignition lock only on 69 C-body models.

    Also the seat patterns are different: 69s have horizontal stitching on the seat bottom and the front of the seat back and 70s have longnitudinal/vertical stiching plus that the metallic details were more numerous in 69 than 70.

    If, for some miraculous reason, the exterior door handles are not pitted they would be worth saving, too.

    It does indeed look like the transmission still is in the car.

    Wish I could snap my fingers and save that car. Alas, my resources are finite.

    Fuselage.de has settled arguments here on the forum, over and over.
