    So here she is. 30 years of barn dust. But almost everything is there. This is a one owner car. I still have a whole garage of parts to go through. So far most everything is here. Not sure yet what I'm going to do with it.

    I'll be holding on to it. I found mostly all new rubber and tail light lenses. And the oem decals I found. Your car is beautiful maybe I can get this one back. I've found that it has new suspension bushings and shock all the way around. I'm missing the front lip spoiler. That's probably not even available. I am happy to say it has new brakes all the way around and runs and drives like a top. So the real hard part starts with trying to find good interior parts and getting

    They are NOS stock decals I believe. They are in with the stuff that came with the car. I can ask the original owner where her husband found them if she remembers. They owned the car all its life so I can get a pretty good story out of her as time goes by and I keep digging.

    Some pics. I got most all the dash lights working. Took the display out of one old chronometer and rebuilt mine. Took the gas tank down. Re built rubber lines. I'm looking for a filler neck rubber seal mine is destroyed and I'm looking for a gas pick-up filter or complete sending unit? Also other parts. If you know where to get parts let me know. Thanks.

    I have an aftermarket sender, and a replacement filter sock if you want them. If your original sender is in good shape other that the filter, I would just change the filter. I can post pics when I get home

    Very cool. I was able to get the filler neck seal. How much do you want for the filter?
