  1. Earlier this year I ordered a qt. of lacquer from TCP Global. 66 Chev aqua to paint a tilt column. About $175. shipped. Mark
  2. Hi John, His phone was not on the sign. Just mileage, and a few other things about the car. He doesn’t have it advertised anywhere else right now. I got his number so I could post it here. The condition of this car is what it might look like a few weeks after new car delivery. I was surprised by this one, and like most of us, I’ve seen a million cars. With minor repair on the RF fender, this one would be an HPOF winner. IMO.... I would post it but I don’t want scammers calling him. Mark
  3. I saw this in WI last Friday. Car is located in West Salem/Lacrosse area. 74 Mercury Marquis; 19K miles; didn’t ask the owner what engine it had. Car looks to be in new or near condition. Was stored in an aircraft hangar long term, there was a minor mishap with the RF fender as can be seen in the pic. Underside of this car looks new, I’m not sure if it’s ever been driven in rain. Original tires still on it. He’s asking under $10K. PM me for his phone number. Mark
  4. Great thread. Never heard of “old man gold” before, but here it is. Mark
  5. Nothing in MN yet. Mark now 3/26. How much longer before contacting AACA?
  6. I’ll respond to you guys asking about the gears. Sorry for the very tardy response. Didn’t see that this thread was still active. Mark
  7. Rear wheel opening trim is different between the Skylark & Chevelle. Mark
  8. The Skylark Gran Sport sitting out in the shop. I don’t think anything was done once on that resto. The paint & upholstery, only because those skilled tasks were done by someone else. Ever lay awake at night wondering why the hell you’re doing this... Mark
  9. We are somehow married to the same woman. Never goes into the shop, but I have leveraged her as the pedal operator when bleeding brakes. And have 3 hobby cars. So no complaints here. Mark
  10. Large S center caps are for some type of Superior brand custom wheels. The single small cap is from an Appliance brand custom wheel. Mark
  11. I’m not a Ford guy, but looks like 65-66 Mustang to me. Mark
  12. You might want to test the waters at Modified 65s are welcome there. One of the members has a 65 Skylark convert very similar to yours but with an LS motor. Very nice car BTW! Mark
  13. MSRA had a large part in making MN #1. Except for those winter months doncha know. Mark
  14. The wheels done for the Skylarks were all painted. Mark
  15. Yes, there was group purchase to recast 64-66 Skylark steering wheels thru the web forum and Koch’s was used. Mark
  16. The frame you are looking for is the same as all 65 Skylark Gran Sport. Also 65 Pontiac a-body convert will interchange. You can go to and scrounge around. There may a frame or 2 available there or join the party and post an ad. Good luck! Mark
  17. No dealer promo I’ve ever seen has a friction motor. Mark
  18. Pic of map attached. This was mailed along with the trailer parking pass. Mark
  19. No need to remove stat or water crossover. The bolts typically come out hard on those. Be careful! Use plenty of WD40 or whatever is your favorite. Just need to remove lower rad hose and 1 heater hose. For a non-AC car. a little RTV (Ultra Black) on the gasket won’t hurt. Mark
  20. A friend of mine has a few of those. Lots of the tapes too. He & his dad made reproductions of the plastic gears. I can send you his contact info if you’d like. Mark
  21. Hi Pete, those are Skylark. Randy, highly recommend you join if you’re looking for those. Mark
  22. This link should answer your question. Mark
  23. Dads first new car. The whitewalls must be new, previous photos of the car are all black walls. 6 cyl. 3 speed. Mark
