Re: 67 versus 68 seats

Makes sense. You will have to drill then and skip both the original rectangular brackets for the panel and arm rests to fit right.

Re: 67 versus 68 seats

There were originally two rectangular brackets(for both doors) for the arm rests to screw into. In my case, the the forward brackets(towards the nose) were retained. I had to drill into the door panel for both of the other bolts(towards the rear)to install the 67 arm rests. The original rear bracket...

Re: 67 versus 68 seats

Optimal Front Jack Stand Locations for 68?

I am going to replace the power steering cylinder on my 68 and I need to know where the best locations to jack the car up and the best locations to place the jack stands under the front of the car. A pic of the locations would be great too. Any assistance is much appreciated.

Re: Dash and headlights flash on and off

Funny. When I was 16 and I had my 71 convertible, the tail lights, head lights and dash lights would flash on and off at different intervals. It was quite the spectacle to see something like that.

Re: The July 2018 Ride of the Month is Dancobraman45's drag cat!

Nice ride. It's a shame that you didn't do a write-up for Ride of the Month. A lot of people are interested in the history of this car. Any chances of fulfilling that request? :pray:
