Re: 68 R Code

Those aluminum strips replaced the original cardboard strips which were too rotten to re - use. The last two days were spent installing the headliner. It is a lot of tedious but simple work. Anywhere a screw went through the headliner I installed screws in the car before installing the headliner to ...

Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

I've been to Canada, Kentucky. It's the definition of "the boonies". Amazing that the car was rescued and restored in the 1980's only to be left outside to rot again.

Re: 68 R Code

Re: 68 R Code

The last two days were spent installing the headliner. It is a lot of tedious but simple work. Anywhere a screw went through the headliner I installed screws in the car before installing the headliner to make finding the holes much easier. Bolts were installed in the shoulder harness holes for the s...

Re: New carb for 351C 4V????

Re: New carb for 351C 4V????

Make sure that when the vacuum advance works that it gives the proper amount of advance. Make sure that the distributor'...
