Friend has one with decal. Brother worked at a dealer in 1968 to 70 ish. Before repo's.
Well they don't get much "earlier" than mine, being one of the first 53, or so, Belv/BelvII and Sat's off the line.or really an early production car.
Are you attached at the engine mount bolts or to the unused "power steering" hole in the water pump housing casting??Wayne, I "created" a torque strap for my Hemi 4spd car years ago (non power steering). Been working great for 40 years. Used to tell people it was the "rare optional for station wagons" factory piece. I can get photos for you if interested.
To the PS mount and a hole in the frame rail underneath the battery tray. Back when I made this it was solely for safety in case of a broken motor mount. Original appearance was not as critical 40 years ago as it is now. I believe the attach point on the frame horn was already there? An added benefit is it keeps the drive train more stable during shifting, which leads to better shifting! I made a couple more of these back in the day to help out with shifting issues on friends 4 spd. cars. One of them being an A12 Roadrunner. I wasn't in the shop yesterday and my car is on the top position in storage, but I will try to get you a photo today.Are you attached at the engine mount bolts or to the unused "power steering" hole in the water pump housing casting??
Thanks. Confirmed with RC that hex on both ends was correct vs the knurled round ends
Interesting. The one I took out, that was run through the wrong hole, was knurled on both ends. The repro I put in was hex on both ends like the NOS Fran shows.Actually, while mine has the hex end on the transmission, it has a knurled end on the speedometer.
