  • Pickup and ready for transport home

  • Rebuilt the front suspension

  • New brakes all around

  • Out for a little drive up and down the driveway, taking advantage of the 40degF heatwave in January, still a bit early for top down driving

New purchase, needs work (paint, electrical, general maintenance, get it running).

Replaced ignition switch, cleaned up turn signal and wiper switches, debugged lights, all working now. Starter and ignition system replaced. Installed new fuel lines and replaced fuel pump. Replaced radiator hoses and antifreeze. All of the electrical system is now working. Engine running well now, clutch, transmission and differential tested. Rebuilt carb, changed oil in differential and transmission.

Rebuilt front suspension (was in pretty bad shape), brakes front and back replaced and replaced handbrake cable. Rostyle wheels are sandblasted, primed and painted. New tires mounted and balanced.

Hard top seals fixed, soft top mounted but need warmer weather to stretch out to shape. Need to buff and wax.

Will be ready to put on the road as soon as the weather breaks here in the frigid north.
