So I had nice day out with the Colonel yesterday and my 14 year old son.

I replaced the inlet hoses to carb and found one with crack through to the braid. Also plugged a vacuum port on the carb that was causing an extreme high idle. Pics to follow later.

What's even crazier. When I pulled the spare tire out of the trunk and I took a closer look. I'm wondering if I might have an original spare tire?

Of course I didn't get a picture to do more research!

Original?! I thinks so. Need to clean it up. Any date code to look for? Or are going to make we wait till Monday to watch Dons video?

Thanks

I doubt it's a usable spare!



Got the front bumper cleaned up and polished as well. Kind of a before and after shot.



Next visit I think I will pull the valve covers, bring them back to clean them up. Then reinstall with new gaskets on the following trip. New plug wires and distributor cap.
