Hey everyone, I have a 69 r-code xr-7 convertible. Origingally the car was dark ivy green with white top and interior, electric windows, air, and tilt swing-away wheel. It has been in my family since 1983 and in my dads barn since 1988. I recently just got her out and was suprised after finding a few dead rats and snake skins, that the top and windows still work and motor still turns over. Looking forward to sharing with you guys, my adventures of getting her back roadworthy. A new gas tank will be a must. :wave:

I will try to get some on here soon. It is an automatic. I am getting the Marti report. The front suspension will need replaced due to sitting in the barn and dry rotting. The rear drums were locked up, but after pulling the car out of the barn they broke loose. The car is going to need alot of TLC. Going to be a good project, but worth the time. I can't wait to hear that CJ rumble.
