    I must be missing it somewhere...
    I know someone is making it; I got one about a year ago. Pretty sure it was Osborne.
    However, Duane has said that it is not correct. I've been supposed to call him to discuss it and get more details, but haven't gotten around to it.
    Also, not sure if it is the same decal for the SR (GS) and SF (full size) motors, but it would certainly be better than nothing...

    Given when I had to obtain this one it may have come from OPG, Year One or the Parts Place. Check their lists.

    Wow, it looks great. It reminds me of what my Dad's looked like when he got it redone in 1980. He too had it a triple black.

    Soon it will be back on the road, except it will have the correct interior (Pearl White).

    The poster is beautiful. How large are you going to make it?

    I already have some mounted about 24 x 30". Until tonight I had never tried to post the artwork as it reqired a url link and a host site. Some of the Board members were kind enough to help me with a program they have, but I do not have, that allowed the file to be changed from a PDF to a JPEG.


    Given the hosting I am puzzled that they are not full size out of the box.

    No, I have no plans to change them. These were mounted on the standard foam type board. I had the company that actually laid in the artwork over my text do the mounting. I have some smaller ones also.

    I had some nice ones but I do not think they are NOS just refinised and redyed.

    Jim, since you are answering questions is the yellow stamp on the AC compressor correct? I have two untouched originals(70 and 71) and nothing visible. I have seen them on earlier 60's cars however.

    It mounts on a U-shaped sheet metal bracket that wraps around the top well and is secured on the seat back, and close to the trunk opening. It is a blower that (I believe) is attached to the well fabric where a hole is cut into it so the air can flow to the window. My convertible had one, but it didn't work, so I removed it.

    This was before I cleaned up the trunk and removed the blower:

    Jim your car is an insperation. I have been thinking tripple black for a while. Mine would be a CLONE and a 350, but I like the color combo and here in MN the black won't be so bad. Give me another year to come up with all the parts I need like Hood w/all parts, air breather exct...
