Car has 46,001 miles and the gal I bought the car from bought it New in 72. All original keys, books, Moroni, and service records. It was an excellent deal. New disc brakes and tires, needed a starter. I purchased this morning and did starter, plugs, fuel pump, old fuel out New in, greased all fittings, pb blasted all the joints such as carb linkage, and fixed the rear trunk latch tumbler.
    Here’s some pics, glad to be here. Radio, all lights, cruise control, horn, ALL WORKS!
    Nice to meet everyone

    Welcome to the site from the Motor City!
    I didn’t really mean what I said in the thread where this car was discussed about the current color combo...:rolleyes:
    Seriously though it sounds like you got a great deal and there might be a budget for a paint job?:poke:

    Thanks everyone, at this point I’m not driving the car much. I’ve got all the trim off (for polishing ) using my tried and true Coca Cola and tinfoil trick on the bumpers and chrome. I’m thinking white exterior, it’ll be classy and the green interior will match well. What do you gents think?
