Returning a classic to its former glory, or better, is a rewarding
process, but sometimes it seems never-ending. However, that’s part of
the pleasure of messing around with cars, old or new. Who would want
a hobby that had an end point?
These are the tasks I’m currently working on. They are not necessary,
as the car is a reliable driver at present. However it’s a 38 year-old car
and doing these minor upgrades is enjoyable and rewarding.
Alternator belt slipping when cold; new belt installed. Squealing
with new belt at startup. Pulley, or not tight enough?
Door speakers scratchy; re-new wire connections
FUTURE DEVELOPMENT (if I keep the car)
Replace competition pads and shoes with softer compound
Replace suspension bushings
Install driving lights and toggle switch using existing relay
Replace marker/turn signal/brake lights with LEDs.
Clean/detail engine bay; replace choke cable (have part)
Get leather seat covers from Moss; detail interior
Asking $6,900 ($US5,000 appr.)
