    Super desireable/rare car here for assembly. In great shape. Just needs love.

    The plan is to be rolling on Fuchs with dual carbs…We’re going to have some fun building it.

    Kelly… what color is this???

    John…. It’s Yukon Yellow.   Mary and I have’t settled on the interior and top color.  I don’t think we want black, even though that’s what Yukon Yellow had from the factory.  I have some King Crab Fuchs for the front and deep six Fuchs for the rear that I’ll box up and ship out shortly.

    Mary and I can’t wait to see this car come together.

    If your up to it that would be great. Just take it easy, I don’t want this project getting you down.

    Super cool car!

     

    Maybe a light tan interior would look good?

    Willy…That’s one of the choices on our list of colors.

    I’m hesitant to ask John or Franz to do a website poll on the group of colors cause we could ended up with 2-3 pages of  talk about why or why not to have a certain color.   But I’m open to everyone’s suggestions.

    Web site Poll…… 😎  😎  Thats funny… and was done soo much about 10 years ago…. 😎  Not so much anymore… 😎

    I didn’t accomplish much yesterday.. I got the body transferred over to one of my body dollies… and Gave it a bath!!!  It was dirty dirty!!!  and needs me to do some rubbing on it.. it has tape residue and spots that are marred from a cover or parts storing or something…    More progress today!!! 😎

    This morning I was using this adhesive remover to get all the tape residue off the car… it was randomly everywhere. 😎

    Then onto tapping holes for assembly prep..

    DSCF9545

    Looks like we are missing a running board hole… 😎  We are missing a trim hole on the pass front 1/4 also… 😎 8-(  Them Jack points look funny also?? maybe????

    DSCF9544DSCF9546

     

     

    Lots of good parts….. Lots of missing parts also… 😎  Franz noticed your taillights are american spec 55.. You need hearts… I haven’t seen lenses or bulb holders for these yet either… 😎  Wrong headlight switch.. this is  59 style…  I have not seen a wiper switch also…. But you have an NOS ignition switch!!!!!! 😎  😎  😎  😎  No chrome for middle of dash, also no speedo trim ring either….  Maybe there are more trinkets hiding in a box????

    The speedo is SOOOOO nice and original…. Do you want it sent in and restored by Orange Empire zero’ed out and shit?
