I recently had someone re-guice the R-12 and it blows cold, But I have heard that doing the R134 conversion is not the best plan. So just need to find the R12 and qualified practitioner I would say.

 

Of course one would want to refresh the system before dumping a bunch or R12 in to avoid leakage. $$$$$

I think Marty Roth had a case of R-12 cans a few months ago.  I was looking for a couple of extras to have on hand, but he really wanted to sell the entire lot.  Maybe we can work something out among us if he still has them available...

Good day...

 

Finally got my '64 out of the shop where we rebuilt the motor, transmission, suspension, brakes, re-cored the radiator, plus a handful of other minor items....interestingly enough the recent discussions related to exhaust (primarily mufflers) and steering box are two issues that I still have to deal with...

 

The body and interior are basically still original, just over 120k miles, I've owned the car since 1980 and was a summer daily driver for nearly 25 years, (stored inside typically November to May) then it was parked in our one car shed for a number of years where I would periodically oil cylinders and crank it over until my son turned 16 and wanted to get er going...

 

Although I considered selling it, after owning the car this long, I decided to put some long overdue money into the mechanicals (and a bit of bling under hood) Valve covers showed up too late to paint with the engine, so I'll probably paint those (polish the ribs and logo) come winter...

 

Although the paint is old, tired and chipped here and there, I do have touch up paint that matches pretty close, and I like the idea of retaining the survivor aspect...Still has the original dealer badge.

 

Although far from a show car, it's still a pretty nice twenty-footer... and maybe someday I'll do the body... But for now, I'm simply going to enjoy driving it... Makes me feel twenty-something again...

 

 

Later, 

 

Mike Swick

The latest rendering of the Aqua Zephyr by automotive artist Brent Gill of Brent Designs. Check him out on Instagram @brentdesigns

The drawing was photographed under indoor lighting so it looks a little yellow. It's on white drawing paper. 

This low resolution picture doesn't do it justice. 20180709_152100.thumb.jpg.e2884ef0e9ad0ccaa911094595af7321.jpg

Saw this on Instagram 

Not my cup of tea but the owner obviously likes it!

Looks like a '63/64 Rif front end grafted onto a 1959 or 60 Corvette!
