  1. Thanks avgwarhawk, that is good info. So you can mount anywhere to the floor board. There is no special beefed up spots. correct?
  2. Thinking of adding seatbelts to my 60 Invicta coupe. How hard is it to do this? Any suggestions for a source for seatbelts? Not worried about originality but red seatbelts would be nice.
  3. Thanks for the info. I will pass it on.
  4. A friend of mine is planning on doing a restomod of a 65 special convertible. He needs a new floor pan as the existing is rusted badly. Does anyone know where one can be bought? Does a chevelle pan work? Thanks.
  5. Thanks for all the replies. I think what I will do is drive the Utah car as is. After I retire, maybe 6-10 years from now, I'll start seriously restoring my old car. Plan to do most of it my self except the paint. It will never be a show car, but it will be nice. When I start to part out the cars, I'll let you know. The white coupe is very rusty and body wise there is nothing left. I think the old lady must have left it parked on a busy street where it would get sprayed with the salt. i put seat covers on the beige interior of the custom coupe back in '75 and have never had t
  6. Pete, it is a two door sedan with around 30k original miles. Bought it from a little old lady in St. Paul. It is very very rusty. It ran very well when parked but has not been driven for 20 years. Automatic. High efficiency 2 barrel option.
  7. Pete, Those are all good questions and kind of why I posted so I can clarify my own thoughts. i'm guessing to do my old original car would be $30-$50k. I saw an Invicta Sport coupe sell in Chicago at Mecum a year ago in the mid 30's. Therefore, restoring my old car does not make financial sense, only emotional. Of course, few cars make financial sense. While having a completely original car would be really nice, I don't see the time or the money to do that. So I am probably looking at doing a very very nice driver which is almost where my Idaho car is. But I sure would like the buckets
  8. Looking for some constructive thoughts about what to do. Back in '75 my dad and I pulled a 1960 Invicta Custom hardtop coupe out of the junkyard. It was Tahiti Beige with a beige interior. My dad and I did a amateur restoration on it. We painted it Tampico red not worrying about correct colors as it was 1975 and the car was only an old car. The car is a minnesota car so it had a lot of rust on the lower half meaning lots of bondo. I drove it for 4 years and then parked it and it hasn't moved since. It has been stored in a barn like structure with a dirt floor. Fast forward to 1995 and I s
  9. What do you have for trade? Looking for wheel well trim for a coupe.
  10. Hey Bob, good to see you still have that car. One of the nice things about it is it has alot of options. Fiber optics, speed minder, chrome trim, small consil (sp), and parade boot. Loved that car and would buy it back if I would have room for it. Bump for ya.
  11. Thanks for the good info.
  12. Last year I bought a '60 Invicta with the original 401. The previous owner replaced the carter with an new edelbrock. the problem is that there is no linkage to the transmission kick down. Is there linkage available for this or should I rebuild a carter afb I have on a '60 parts car? Thanks,
  13. It would be great to see pics of your cars sometime. do you have them posted somewhere? I too have a '60 custom coupe.
