Runs great! …but the generator bearings are not good. I can replace them fairly easily, and Napa usually has the bearings in stock.John JonesModeratorMay 31, 2022 at 7:08 amPost count: 9941

Wow! Franz. We went in to fix some oil leaks and no we have a classic. Thank You so much. Can not wait to drive it home. Greg and DanaFranzModeratorJune 1, 2022 at 1:14 pmPost count: 4942
Yeah it’s a beautiful car! Glad I could bring its potential to fruition.
The front brakes had some new parts, but you can see the passenger side was leaking and the driver side had a shoe that fell apart. I’m re-surfacing the drums now and we should have a 100% sorted machine.OmarParticipantJune 1, 2022 at 5:16 pmPost count: 63
Pun intended? It looks awesome, what a beautiful preservation!FranzModeratorJune 1, 2022 at 8:52 pmPost count: 4942
Yeah! I fixed everything, even the dome light works. I had to clean the original paint wheels and polish the hubcaps. It’s like a new Volkswagen would have been in 1963 …except a little beat up 😁.ColeBModeratorJune 1, 2022 at 11:09 pmPost count: 2612
Wow! That’s nice! A little beat up=character
