Been a '67 nut my whole life

Greetings from SouthCentral Ontario. I recently bought an Emerald Turquoise '67 Bel Air 2-door post from Tennessee. I have the original bill of sale from the dealership and many documents along the way. It came with two options: an overdrive transmission and white wall tires. No clock....no radio....nothing else.

Plans call for a body-off project which will take 3 - 4 years. It's a 6-cylinder with three-speed-manual (with overdrive), but that will all change.

P.S. Our thoughts are with the good people of Boston.

Welcome to the Team Bob!

That three speed over drive is a very rare option (not much call for fuel economy when gas was running 36¢ a gallon to 27¢) a gallon during the frequent gas wars that were winding down in '67. Apparently the owner had a crystal ball to for see the gas lines of '73. Same could be said for your Radio Delete Plate as that was also a very rare part (you could probably trade the plate even for a nice AM-FM Stereo radio to fill that hole behind the plate). About the only cars to come without juke radios as they were called back then were vehicles owned and operated by municipalities that didn't want city workers sitting under a shade tree listening to a radio instead of reading water meters or inspecting construction sites. Those vehicles where clapped out by the time they were sold at auction so there are few survivors with a radio delete plate.

I mentioned that I've been a '67 nut my whole life. This is what started it all 45 years ago.
