@marko Congrats on the score.
I'm curious about the air cleaner, it surely had the 2nd snorkel added - are there visible welds?
The snorkels are longer, and the housing taller, than a 70-73 DS.
If it were from an RV the snorkels would be much closer together, to fit under the engine cover.

the vent windows work well, they operate very quickly & smoothly.Interesting the car is the NY model but has electric power vent windows. Usually, the NYB would be more likely to have power vents but even they are rare in those cars. Have fun and good luck. Shame the VIN plate is gone . will that mean it will be hard to get verified and titled?
@rags was right, Joe remembered he used a Ford module and the intermittent wiper switch from a 78 NYB. it looks to me like the car has a 2 speed wiper motorGreat score! It would be nice to learn how the intermittent wiper mod was done. I’ve been thinking of putting one on my ’70 NYer.
From being around in those days learing to drive and at my grandfather's dealership, it is unusual to see a NY (not a brougham) with power vent windows but yet no AC hanging under the hood. Must have been a smoker who wanted to knock ashes off the edge of an open vent windowYep.
Holy wow that is a long tow bar! Did you make that? That would look like some guy following close. I made a heavy duty tow bar 10 or 15 years ago for pulling 3/4 pick ups.Not much known at this point.
Dude died; court appointed administrator sold car to me from the estate.
Healthy motor, trans and rear. Ordered up $1500 of the usual suspect parts to get it running up and down the road for evaluation, then go from there.
Yes, she comes complete, but does she talk and does she walk.
That 8-foot tow bar and 1 ton van is the bomb for flat towing.

The whole idea seemed sketchy to me and still does. Towed great on the freeway but getting out of town and back in was a pain.
Does not like tight corners.
I would have used mine more but I don't have a good method to attach to different types of bumpers. On a truck I pop the bumper off and it bolts to the frame.
