    Dan,

    I have seen the AC line issue vary.. all the lines are natural, except the line where it goes past the corner of the radiator, into the dryer, and every one of the "tall style" driers I have seen is black. This is in fact an NOS one, and of course we don't base everything on that.

    Now, I have in fact seen natural alum driers, and natural lines, but only on the cars that have the later style short dryer. I have seen both on 70 cars, but the parts book indicates the long skinny one for a 70. It is also what was on the car.

    Is there any other 70 Stage1 convertibles restored to this caliber? This is the BEST 70 Stage1 convertible that I've seen!!! I just want to see it in person at the nats in BG.

    We plan to be there with both cars. But I am not a GSCA member and I think that you have to be just to show a car. I expect it would cost 2-3K just to have them transported up and back.

    I have never been to Norwalk and it is too close to BG for me to go there and BG this year. At his point it is a tough call for the JC/BPG event. National Trails is my favorite track but the logistics of getting the cars transported makes it difficult to put together.

    No cruise or power seats. So most other things like rear defrost. We did the dealer add on electronic trunk release so that is why the trunk latch mechanism is unpainted which is correct for this piece as opposed to the normal body paint painted colored latch.

    I remember seeing this beauty in JW's shop during my one, and so far, only visit, in late summer 2005, before the resto began.

    Upon close inspection of the photos, it appears that JW discovered, and thus removed, the drool marks serruptitious placed on the drivers door by yours truly. It was to be my silent signature upon this work of art.

    Seriously Jim and Jim, you both continue to elevate the status of restorations to an even higher Nth degree, if that is possible.

    I doff my cap to each of you.

    Now how about another free resto coupon for the rest of us plebes.
    (let the Franklins begin accumulating)

    I hope that I can one day be able to view the finished result in person.

    JL,
    Beverages of your choice!

    Yes, I am going....already made reservations in Jan. Going to be a caravan of trucks and trailered Buicks to Columbus from FL. I am totally fed-up with flying anymore and will be driving from now on. I will be driving my parts hauler/black express.

    Well at least you didn't have to find that conv/cruise/defrost dash plate I think it would be rarer than the chicken lips
