Re: Seat question

I have replaced the stock seats in my '69 convertible. I would love to sell the stock black vinyl seats. They are in great shape as the previous owner put in new foam and recovered them. Interested?

Thanks,
Todd

Overview: 1969 base 3 speed manual 351 Cleveland (previous owner swapped out 351W) Electric headlight doors an...

Re: newbie question on what year to buy

I love the '67 and '68's but really wanted a convertible so they were out. I have always preferred the 1969 front end to the 1970. The 1969 front bumper and grille is cleaner than the 1970 version and the bumper's projection to align with the revised hood in my opinion. I noted an earlier comment ab...

Re: 14 factory steel wheels

I'm in MI and have a set of 5 with four good tires. After completing my brake swap, I'll never need them again.

Re: 70 passenger window dropped - advice

Every failure is an opportunity for improvement...and to spend more money! My car had a small radiator and mechanical fan w/o clutch when I got it. Ran hot and overheated. Cooling system upgrade. My rear seat stitching was coming undone and I had a tear in the vinyl. Interior upgrade. My carb failed...

Re: 70 passenger window dropped - advice

When mine fell out I saw it wasn't the first time based on the various adhesives on the glass and brackets. I used my cut off wheel to get in to the bracket to get the failed adhesive out of the bracket. I followed Don's video and used the 3M adhesive. I cleaned out the dirt from the door with my co...

Re: 351C performance question - Please chime in

My 351 C is pretty sluggish off the line. I'm running a 2.75 open final drive behind the three speed-stock from OEM 351W 2V stock motor-which I believe is the root cause in my case. Pulls hard when revs come up. The previous owner had the engine rebuilt. It came with 4V heads, an unknown cam, Edelbr...
