So far I've checked the engine block numbers, alternator, distributor, carb & intake numbers, powerglide case numbers, and even the back of the dash clock. They all fall within 7 days of one in other.
One thing that is strange, is that there is no Trim Tag on the firewall. There is no holes where one would have been attached. But, there are 2 indentations on the top left hand side, to the left of the wiper motor, that indicate where the tag would have been installed. I've Googled pictures of the location for this.
Any thoughts on that? I know that I can get a repro one made though.
I haven't checked the rear yet, but was told by the previous PO that is was also original to the car. Car has 77,553 original miles on the odometer.
The only thing that isn't original on the engine that I see are the stupid chrome valve covers that that were but on way back when. I'm looking for a pair of early script covers for this.
As far as the interior, the seat inserts have had new cloth installed, but the vinyl surrounding them are original. The door panels, dash pad and all dash components are original.
I'm not too sure if the carpet has been change or not as it is in really nice shape. Headliner is also original as well as all the bright work on the car.
The door and trunk weatherstripping has been replaced.
One more thing. all the floors, trunk etc, all are original and solid.
