Re: 1969 Wheel Questions

Amazing how no one ever mentions "offset". It's so important!

Re: No vin stamp on heads or block.

Royce,

Quick question, why would you say there is no block stamping on a 68? Does that only apply to certain plants?

Thanks

Re: Marti report

Whenever I've been interested in a car, I've always paid the rush fee to confirm the statements on the car. Well worth it in my eyes. I've never had it take more than 2 days. Then if I purchase, I don't particularly care how long the full report takes. Just my 2 cents.

Re: 1969 Convertible sells at Barrett Jackson Mohegan Sun

Saw it up close. Nice resto-mod. Worth the money it brought. The 66 Royce referenced was a plain jane Satelite that two bidders got in a pissing contest over. At better than $84 k out the door, in my opinion, it was worth maybe half that. Very uneventful auction this year.

Re: Newbie need help with 68 Cougar Purchase

If the car is exactly as described, the price sounds very fair to me. X is pretty rare. I believe only 1200 or so were built in standard form.

With AC, Peg leg or Trac-lok, 3:25 was the max allowed.

Re: Smoke from dash

Looks like the ignition "resistor" wire, a common culprit on these cars.

Re: Extreme Detailing

Looks cool, if you're into modified. Not attempting to take it down but, you did ask for opinions. I'm all into original look's and this is far from that. Just my opinion, don't crucify me, I'm just expressing an opinion, as asked. Best of luck.
