Re: '68 Cougar won't start

Your battery is dying just sitting w/a trickle charger hooked up. If it happened while driving I would suspect the alternator, but not in a car that just sits. Seems like there is a static power drain that is greater than the trickle charger's output. Wonder if you have a bad solenoid "hanging open"...

Re: Day 2 Restoration Advice

A Day 2 car in the 70's could be a scary thing. Air shocks, slapper bars, big cragers out back, steep gears, a tall intake, lumpy cam, white headers & side pipes. Kenwood stereo & some house speakers in the backseat.

I‘m looking for a Hardtop Coupe because it looks more sporty.
They are also way stiffer, which makes a huge difference in how they drive.

Re: Boss 302 gas

All good thoughts, but if the car was fine before & is now acting up, 1st I'd replace the fuel filter, and also check the rubber parts of the fuel line as sfhess suggested. If you find a lot of crap in the fuel filter, carry an extra, and think about proceeding down the path Royce suggested.
