Notes: I took a chance and bought it on eBay in December 2002. It turned out to be a good buy. The body is solid with only a little rust that needs to be cleaned up. Underside and frame are clean. The engine is tired but still runs well. I just picked up a second engine which is a factory 4 bbl. The plan is to install that one while I build up the original. Body and interior work are done as time, parts, and money are available. Everything depends on available funds. Please feel free to make a donation or remember me in your will.

I think the '67 looks the best with the pointy hood and grille

Wheelcovers are from a 1970 T-bird, I believe. Thanks, Grampa, for stashing them away in the garage.

Maintenance & Modification Logs

06/04/04Repair158000Worn suspension / steering
After the new ignition was installed, I went for a road test. I heard new noises coming from the front end on the way home. The noise turned out to be worn out ball joints and tie rod ends. Since I won't do this kind of work, I will have to pay through the nose to have it done.

06/03/04Modification158000Upgraded ignition
I had lots of trouble with knocking and pinging. After trying colder plugs, retarding timing, mid-grade and premium gas, and gas additives, I decided to rip out the old points ignition. I did not want to spend $300+ on an aftermarket ignition, though. I heard that the mid '70's Ford trucks still used the FE block and had duraspark solid state ignition. I got a distributor and control module from a local discount auto parts store for about $115 including $30 i had to pay for the core. I did the conversion in about 3 hours and it fired up on the first try. No more pinging and I can run regular gas.

05/01/04Repair157000Choke cable
I bought the car with a carburetor that had a manual choke but no choke cable. It was fun opening the hood, setting the choke, starting the car, then getting out again to reset the choke once it was warm. I put a cable in last year, but it wasn't strong enough to push the choke back to the open position. Today, I got fed up and tried some silicone lube with graphite in it. I shot some in both ends of the cable and then on the choke linkage. Everything moves more freely now and works ok.
