Thanks for speaking up and especially for the great photos. I understand much clearer now what they really look like and how the hoses attach. Looks like two small holes get drilled to the bottom of the dash and the two bolts secure them.
This is a developing project but the current thought is that everything in the AC system will be aftermarket except the four vents inside. Yes, under the hood would look nothing like stock and I’m okay with that. Inside would look very 1966 except that the switch’s wouldn’t be accurate.
Come on down!!
Would love to have someone to go rumble around the hood with. Extremely quiet down here.
Big retirement community here so everywhere I go people in their 60s and older are happy to come up and see the car. It reminds them of their youth.
Just as a follow up to this thread from last month, I went with Daniel Stern ([email protected]) and got a great product. It’s built exactly like the “original switch?” and has been working beautifully.
“If” you have a VIN, an approximate time and location of sale for a car you’ve owned in the past, how do you go about finding where it is today?
I’m curious as I am in the same boat with a 1970 440 Six Pack, Dodge Challenger R/T. I have the VIN and I sold it in San Diego in 1984...
Went through and got rid of a bunch of little things that didn’t work: turn signals (both dash turn lights and the left side of the switch in the steering wheel),low oil pressure light, parking brake light, console light for the transmission, fuel level gage, etc.
Nice having all the little...
Yeah, that was never a thought!
I actually have a different thread basically asking “what’s wrong with this picture?” so getting info like this here is fine and dandy. This thread was trying to decode exactly what the fender tag and VIN are saying.
Many thanks for calling out what you see as...
Perfect! That’s what I was trying to find.
I wasn’t buying the green color as being correct. It’s relatively freshly done so I don’t have any plans to attack it to correct it but, if my investments can come back around and I get a burr up my butt for correctness I understand now what correct is...
Okay, so I’m back at it.
Yes, the fronts rub only on the chrome trim but I can pull the crank away from it (for the most part) as I crank it over the trim. Less than ideal.
Yes, there are very thin black plastic washers but don’t know that they actually do anything to help. Curious if I can...
Right. The upholstery is accurate to me.
It’s all the green that I think is inaccurate.
According to all I’ve found, everything I have that’s green is supposed to be a gold, citron gold and or white.
I’m fairly certain they wouldn’t have put in white carpet in but I’m just guessing on what...
Yeah. I visited it and got some answers. Just trying to find out exactly how the inside would have looked as built. Don’t see green as an interior color option for a gold 66 Coronet.
It’s in great shape and looks fine. Just trying to determine accuracy.
