  1. The white 63 just went for 41k, not bad money for a 63, and a nicely done one.
  2. We are all suckers for pictures, anyway. Heck, I can't afford to buy it, but I'd love to see a bunch more pics of it close up regardless.

    Abandoned but not forgotten

    Used to see one in about this condition in Saltillo, Ms. when my girlfriend lived near Tupelo. It was almost sunk in the ground. Looked for it every time I came through, and one day, it was gone. I have noticed that it seems all the hoods rust like this one. I think it's because water stores in that part of the hood when you wash them. Every time I wash mine, I open the hood first thing before drying, and a TON of water runs out both sides. Hopefully, it'll help save it.
  4. These axles just bolt in, don't they? Since it's a chunk type rear, no "C" clips? Thinking about doing the rear axle bearings on mine, since I don't know how old they are.
  5. In my experience so far, if ONE component fails, the others of that system ain't far behind. I had a complete redo of the driveshaft on mine. I had also redone the brakes with new master cylinder, shoes, hardware, wheel cylinders, and rubber lines plus a fluid flush. Guess what failed? Yep, the booster. 50 year old vehicles have 50 year old rubber; yes, I would definitely replace it.
  6. I think there is one on Facebook Marketplace right now for 325.00, not sure if it's the same one or not.
  7. Segar DID have a huge hit with "Old Time Rock n Roll, and all of the musicians on the track are local boys from Muscle Shoals, too.
  8. Bob, "Hollywood Nights" came off the second album with the Silver Bullet Band, "Stranger in Town", which was recorded, at least in part, at Muscle Shoals Sound, down by the river. Can I make it qualify this way?
  9. I put a used clock in mine, cleaned it, redid the bezel, etc. Runs great. Matter of fact, TOO great; it's about 3 hours FAST. Don't know how to slow it down, may have to try to find somewhere to send it to get it regulated.

  13. My 65 has power windows as well, and my right rear quarter window was fussy about coming up all the way on it's own. Had to give it a little tug while working the switch. Sprayed in a shot of silicone spray with the little red nozzle on the can, and all is right with the world now. Had to wipe the excess off with a rag the first few times I used it, but it works perfectly now.
  14. I figure she could kick start a 747. My eyes, my eyes!!!!!!
  15. It would be neat to see an H2 equipped 65 and a standard suspension car side by side. I have look at literally hundreds of 65's in pictures, and most of the stockers seem to have similar stances. The exception to me are the ones with obviously changed (read incorrect) springs that have a stance like a K5 Blazer.
