    Recently purchased a 1971 Superbee 440 6-pack, found in long term storage somewhere in the South. Mostly in great condition other than the brakes rusted solid, front steering linkage a total mess, fuel gauge inoperable, heater doesn't work, no windshield wipers or linkage and a lot of oil leaks.

    Got it mostly fixed over the last few months. Redid the entire braking system, replace entire front suspension, fixed the fuel sender, found and installed complete wiper system and fixed the links so it doesn't catch fire any more.

    Working on the console lights and heating system next.

    Lot's of great advice found on this forum!
