Hey great Q

I had a 72 coupe for my first car and that looks like a late 71 or 72 though you have 73, 74 indicator lenses on it now.

I put a 327 in mine (was 253) but couldn't get insurance after that so I sold it when I got married.

Have missed it ever since.

Great to see one looking so good

Your right it's a 71 model how can you tell?    I didn't even know they had different indicators lol.   Once the front bar gets restored I'll be putting in new ones.

Didn't know about the indicators, are earlier ones clear??
I know 71's have low bucket seats and miles per hour (no km/h)

If the guy wasn't stuffing me around with the rear bumper it would be on the road but sadly I'm working nightshift tonight

Bumper bar arrived today.   Still waiting one the missing tail light to arrive and a few other bits and pieces.

   Headlights are new and working,  indicators will have all new globe sockets and lenses.

  New door trims will be picked up Tuesdays which pretty much finishes the interior off 

  Wasn't sure if ever see my number plates on the car lol

Looks nice Daniel you'll be easy to spot out there from now on. Might even see you down at Williamstown on one of the car day things they have down there most weekends heaps of these types of cars congregate down there.

Let's just say nothing good. 

  The supposedly rebuilt engine was f**ked so I'm waiting on a $9000 engine rebuild only useable parts were the block and the crank YAY

  COON HUNT is waiting on parts time and space
