We're glad that you got the message, you were the only local person I could think of with access to a trailer.

Glad you could score! The lady really did not care about money, just needed it gone fast and loathed sending it to pic-a-part. She said the last time she rode in it she was 8 years old. Post some pictures when you can!

And located in the same area my 69 CJ vert came from, also from the original owner! Chances are they passed each other from time to time and gave the "nod".

Well here she is. 67 standard. Looks to be Gold with blue interior. Interior is apart and pretty bad unfortunately. Body is pretty darned straight. Small dent on one of the quarters. 289 with AC, PS and power drum brakes. Engine compartment is complete. Was running when parked in 1983. I will prolly try to get it started first after changing all the fluids. Didn't get any keys with it so I have not been able to get into the trunk. A little bit of rust at the base of the rear windshield. Should be interesting!!!! Thanks again to Don & Scott. I don't know why I bought it..... as my wife is thinking the same, but I guess more is better.

Zog I am sure you know all this but something that has done wonders for me when resurrecting 10-20 year old engines is drain all the fluids as you noted. replace fluids, then I drop 1/8th to a 1/4 cup of oil down the sparkplug hole of each cylinder, let it sit for a day and then hand crank it around a couple rotations and let it sit for another couple days before firing to let the oil drip down and penetrate all of the rings. I generally clean/rebuild the carb as well before firing it as the gaskets will be rotten and your accelerator pump / valve will probably disintigrate when you fire it up. In extreme cases where it has been sitting un-cranked for more than 10 years it might be a thought to pop the vavle covers and pour some good quality startup oil over the valve-train while you hand crank it a couple times. Something I always do on an engine that hasnt been fired in even a few years is prime the oil pump with a drill and an old distributor. Get the oil preassure up for a couple of minutes right before you actually turn the key.

Whether you keep the car or you have just saved it to pass on to someone else it sounds like a great deal. Congrats :)
