Thanks John, the body has survived very well, the car was kept in a dry barn for 20 years, a good solid base to get going on, steve

That pic brings back memories from when I drove mine through 2 winters, ungaraged.
Mine is comm 1293 and titled as a 67, (though it is likely a 66, I still need to get a heritage certificate to be sure.) So your it's definitely a later build.

Dave is correct, it was originally white with black interior.

Great place to start from. Looks fairly straight and rust free

What is that little protrusion on the oil cap?



A penny for your thoughts but everyone gives their 2 cents' worth...somebody is making a penny.

Hi Joao, it’s some sort of breather on the cap, I’m expecting worn rings once I get it started! Steve

In reply to # 1505407 by mustangmud hi dan, thanks for the reply, hopefully theres a picture of the data plate attached, out here in the wild west, registration titles are not very accurate! steve

Wonder how many teen runaways in the 60s and 70s headed for California from Ohio and landed in Tulsa.

Joao,
That is a breather for the PCV system. There is some oil soaked fiber inside that catches the dirt. AFAIK they were mostly used on cars equipped with the Smith's valve.
All the best,
Paul
