Bought it on ebay a few years ago in southern Colorado. Saw it and told my wife it looked clean and said I wished I could get it. BTW I live in WI ;D She said go ahead. So I bid on it and won. Its a roller and the only rust was a little in the trunk, I could even read the axle stamping, which around here are impossible after a few years.lol
It was a great road trip other than me having bronchitis, My wife ,best friend and I rotated driving out there and back. Didn't plan on staying but it took longer to get outthere than I thought. But hey it's the middle of nowhere right, how hard would it be to get a hotel room for the night. Well there was a race of some so in town and we had to drive an hour to find a room in a crappy part of Pueblo, CO. During the 4 hours we slept someone spray painted new cars at the buick dealer next to the hotel
Bought a set of seats from an Olds guy about 40 miles away, they were from the southwest, either NV or AZ don't remember but the foam was crusty ;D and there were 2 layers of covers. It was like peeling an onion.
hmm centers used to be red ;D
For my college graduation last year (at 37 ;D ) my wife got me all new seat covers, carpet,door panels,etc from Legendary. Sadly it's still in boxes in my house. Its the light blue color which will match the existing paint and the paint I will eventually go with, which will be a stock type met light blue with the white top.
Yeah I love the 2 tone 64-5's. My first was a Saddle mist and white top. This car was originally Regal Mist ( maroon) and white top, but got painted this mystery blue somewhere along the way. Whenever I get around to repainting it I am going to go with a Pacific or Wedgewood mist with white top.
Been working too much and not doing anything to the car
Today I had some free time and repacked the wheel bearings, put on new front brake shoes and new front rubber brake hoses.
Gotta say it felt got to work on it even if it wasn't a whole lot. Need to run some new brake lines, the one that goes to the RF got smashed somehow, and I am switching to a dual res master because 4 wheel manual drums is suicide enough without the suicide master cylinder ;D
Now I am trying to find bushing for the shifter rod on the floor shifter and a right angle union for the brake line to the rear since I went with a dual res master and am separating the front and rear systems .
Painted the console. Blue is going to match better than the tan/brown it was ;D. Going to put it in just painted for now and later on I'll pull it and recarpet it. I kept the old carpet to use as a pattern.
