If fishboy is working on the 67 in his signature then he will only have a drivers side torque box. It was not until the 68 model year that a passenger side torque box was added.

And if so, this would be a good time to add one to the passengers side.

Re: Looking for my Dad's Eliminator

I was able to get it to post for you. FYI if it is a true Eliminator it has a dealer installed vinyl roof. They were not factory available on a Eliminator. But it can help ID this car. https://i.imgur.com/5RYUdAG.jpg I can't tell for sure, but I don't think it has a COUGAR script on the quarter pane...

Re: Pin stripes

I found the same thing Andy when I looked at their site. I think the closest I found was 3/32" with a 3/16"gap and 3/32". That what it's supposed to be, actually. The closest I found on Finesse's site is 1/8" - 3/16" gap - 1/8" (their part number F12). They also have 3/32" - 1/8" gap - 3/32" which ...

Re: Looks like this was an XR7 G

My miss; all I did was copy the VIN and past it. I really didn't pay attention to this being a San Jose car. It is hard to tell if the hole is for a aftermarket or a factory Sun roof IMHO with out putting eyes on the car it self. I can tell it was not a green car from the factory. It may be a solid ...

Re: Looks like this was an XR7 G

It does, but in the text it has the VIN I posted and it should be stamped in to the fender aprons. The only round C pillar emblems used in 69 were on XR7-Gs. But maybe Royce will see this can chime in.

Re: Looks like this was an XR7 G

They list a VIN starting with 8R91F so if that is a correct VIN then it is not a G. Or it could be a misprint and they really meant 8R93F. But then again I thought that all the G cars were built in Dearborn, not San Jose. ture a 302 2V it can't be a Hertz rent a racer. But the G package could be ha...
