Thanks Guys! (I realized it was a good find as soon as I saw it.)
I've only had the car for a little more than a month now and I'm still working on it so that it can pass safety inspection.
So far... replaced flywheel, starter, battery, ignition switch, rebuild accelerator pump on carb, replaced fuel pump, replaced rear axle, new rear disc brakes, a laundry list of electrical issues including lights and horn...
Next step is to upgrade the master cylinder, booster and proportioning valve.
and then (crossing fingers) I'm hoping it will pass inspection.
Then we'll look into those recommended reliability upgrades . . .
Txbobcat: Good to know it was a one-year-only-color. When I get to a point of doing a real restoration, I can do something about that.
Big Dave: Thanks for the pic! I also need to get a set of the stock steel wheels with wheel covers... because of nostalgic reasons.
MikeN: I'll work on that this weekend.
