Re: "G" option wooden shifter handles?

They are all gold new out of the box. When the brass plating wears off they are silver. I believe they were originally (in 1968 - 70) pewter. The ones made in the past thirty years stated showing up with gold.

Re: 1968 cougar xr7 AZ barn find for sale

It's a mirror for some other sort of car, not a Cougar mirror. The holes would be easy to fill during the paint job process.

He tried to keep it away from winter driving but it has had some rust repair and as evidenced by the shock t...

Re: 73 Montego @ auction
