I had always been curious about how many Nordic Blues were out there as I just never seemed to see that many, so went ahead and had a Marti Report run. Kinda cool just to have the statistics. Had mine since the summer of 85 and its still my personal time machine back to those high school years :)

Seeing it also let me confirm I do have the original owners manual and card inside from Monarch Motors with the original buyers info and where/when it was originally sold, etc.

Marti Reports are a must. A great conversation piece at car shows and nice to have if your selling. It's money well spent.

Nordic Blue is a great color. Could post some pictures?

Sure, these pics are a couple years old, but still looks the same, always garaged.

I have the backup lights in now and a few other things done... and yeah, the pop-up sunroof was there when i bought the car in 85, and in AZ it is nice to have, but far from a factory look for sure. Some day I might cover it, who knows.

Been having a fuel delivery problem with the tank, so probably going to swap in a new tank hopefully before summer rears its ugly head.

Nice ride! I put in a 1970 22 gallon tank. It takes a little fabrication to a filler neck, and get the 22 gal sending unit, its a great upgrade for me.

Thanks! It is still setup how it was in high school in the mid-80s, with what was popular at the time, the chrome traction bars, Appliance wheels that are really just cheaper Cragar SS clones. Nothing crazy motor wise, mild cam on the original 289 with a Holley 4-barrel and rebuilt C4, headers and rest of the original drive train. Nothing on it has really changed in the 25 years I've owned it, but hopefully I'll have the time and funds to do some brake updates to disc and some suspension work for the sagging rear leafs that currently held up by air shocks.
