    Ken, Here is a shot of the bracket I'm curious about. It seems to support the accelerator pivot rod that mounts to the firewall. I think I'm missing a piece?
    Anyone else have a pic of this bracket in use? The parts book or manual are of no help.
    60/61 318.

    The bracket mounted with the top left bell housing bolt.....

    Another question. The hood hinges in 61 all seem to be painted body color, EXCEPT for the hinge springs. I have two sets with the springs being a medium green color, obvious OEM. Several original pictures I have looked at show the springs to be a different color than the hinge but it's hard to verify the color. Any facts or theory?

    Hey Will, Just curious If your using the belvedere fenders? How did you drill the holes accurate for the Fury emblem and tristar? It's like 8 pin holes to get just perfect Did you make some sort of template? Or did you just do a bunch of measuring? Or?
    I have a belvedere fender that I want to put Fury trim on.
    Makes me nervous to drill it and be off.

    I don't think your missing anything with brackets. I was looking on some very original 62s that I have and the rod just appears to slip into side of bracket and support it.

    Due to upcoming show schedule and prepping for Carlisle Virgil's restoration is on hold until the end of July. I'll be hitting it heavy after that and hope to be up and running and in paint by the end of the year...... Stay tuned!

    Dang!

    I was hoping to see Virgil at Carlisle. But I know you won't bring it out until it's done to your standards.

    That's cool......take your time.

    Sorry Bob, even 2022 will be a push. Once the body and paint is complete I won't need to travel 250 miles to work on him. A major pain. Once I get it closer to home I'll dedicate a lot more time to the project.

    I have been driving mine on my off days but I put the 93 octane fuel in my tank and I used it in my other '61. I was hoping to have both mine and your'61 parked next to each other at the TN Valley Mopar show
