Hey Kerry-

Did you buy the car?




quote author=KerryBWhite link=topic=5311.msg49355#msg49355 date=1557095798]
Ruben
I would be interested in purchasing the '67 if it is for sale.
In your original post you stated...incredibly original / rust free, and is believed to have 10,454 original miles.
It definitely looks pretty rust free from your posted pictures but can any proof of the mileage be provided??
How does the carpet wear look or pedal wear look with the low mileage?  Has any front end damage or evidence of a crash been discovered due to the A arms being replaced.
Just a few questions if the car is For Sale.
Thanks
Kerry

Darren, Darren...you just canít stay away, can you? I can see you have a great interest in all I do, and Iím faltered.  ;D

I was going to wait for you to respond incoherently to yourself 3 times in a row, but I thought I would save you the key strokes and let you know that no, the car is not sold.

As with car #22, youíre welcome to reach me directly anytime. Or, you can continue to try and stir the pot via the forum. I for one enjoy your random insertions. But, Iím guessing itís tiring to others, as no one responded to your previous posts on this thread. And, the responses to your posts on the #22 thread didnít go so well for you.

Unfortunately, you seem to embody all that is a miss with this forum at times. The first version of the forum was a great resource where personal attacks werenít permitted (especially unjustified). And, now itís degenerated at times into people like yourself coming on and taking grade school shots at others for absolutely no reason.

Do yourself and the rest of us a favor - keep your personal comments about me to yourself. You only make yourself look bad in the process, as well as discourage others who are new to the forum.  And, if your past posts are any indicator of future responses, well, weíll see.

To the rest of the forum, I've said my piece on this subject. I will not respond to Darren Longhofer (64cobra) anymore. Itís simply a waste of time. Nor, will I let him squelch my passion for these amazing cars. 👍🏻

Letís keep it fun, light and educational.  ;)

Peace!

Thanks Rueben for confirming that this whole thread is about you trying to sell this car.  Just like #22 you are not honest at all.  Unfortunate for all of us.   Take care.

Getting this thread back on track...which involves sharing the car and findings...

I took a shot tonight that I thought was pretty cool.  I removed the power steering dip stick, and it's really neat to see all the patina (and gunk!) on the handle of the stick (the outside / exposed area).  But, when you remove the stick from the P/S pump, the rest of the stick looks incredibly well preserved.

Again, I'm not an expert, and this might not be an original dip stick, but to me, it sure looks cool!  :D

For 67 the curled end of the dip stick will typically have the information stamped in as shown below

Thanks guys!  I took another (AKA better) picture of the stick from the side.  I also cleaned up the top, and you can see the writing that you both referenced.   :D

Happy Birthday to #2666! I just got my Deluxe Marti Report today, and subsequently found that the car was completed exactly 52 years ago today.

Crazy.  :D

Sheís on her way! Iím having a local shop get her running. I canít wait!  :)

This picture was taken a week ago, and the shop has already completed their initial assessment. The engine compression looks good, and they used a battery to have her turn over; which she did. The electrical looks good with the exception of the taillight harnesses. And, as expected, the fuel and brakes need to be sorted. As they said, ďPulling the fuel sender out of the tank was like trying to remove a stick from the La Brea Tar PitsĒ; which actually made me laugh out loud!  ;D

More to come! 👍🏻

As they said in "Young Frankenstein" It's Alive!!!!  ;D

I just got word from the shop that's getting her running - today, she started and turned over right way!  No knocking or sputtering nor backfiring... they said she sounded good.  And, they were surprised that she didn't smoke and that there wasn't a bunch of stuff flying out the exhaust once she fired.  I had visions of small animal remains coming through  ;)

And, it was fun to hear them describe the sound of the lifters, as well as the stock exhaust.  I cannot wait to hear her run first hand!  More to come.

Man, is this awesome!!
