  1. I love that kind of car, but don't care for that body style. It's a bit on the high side, but it would be hard to find a better example if that's the kind of thing you like.
  2. Why is it every time I post an ad for a part wanted that I get the message that starts with, "Kindly contact Hall in texas...". It's spam posted by someone who just joined. Does anyone else get this?
  3. I go the car last Saturday and spent the weekend cleaning it up. I've done some research online and with the data tag. The car is NOT a police car, although great pains were taken to make it as authentic as possible. The data tag shows it to originally be Willow Green with Fawn interior. The data tag does show it to be a V8 car, although I don't know which V8. I'm guessing a 327. So, the paint color was changed and the interior color was changed. I have receipts for a 396 rebuild, but don't know if that was for the OEM motor or a replacement motor. Sway bars were installed, along with a radio
  4. No, the only option listed on the data plate is W, which is A02, which is tinted windshield only.
  5. I'm looking for a very nice dog dish hubcap for a '66 Bel Air. Has the red bowtie in the center.
  6. Received a very prompt response from a retired ME trooper. He said '66 was the year they started phasing in automatic transmissions. The Bel Airs were a mix of autos and 3-speed column shifts. So this car is accurate in that respect.
  7. The car arrived yesterday. It's certainly a nice car. I've spent two days cleaning on it and it looks good. However, it is NOT a Maine state police car. It is an accurate clone of one. It has the cop wheels, radio delete plate, and certified calibration sticker on the speedometer. In decoding the data tag, it was originally Willow Green with a Fawn interior. The data tag does show it was originally a V8 car, although I don't know if it was a 396 or not. I haven't gone so far as checking the numbers on the block yet. I also haven't driven it yet, hope to do that later on this week after the rai
  8. I recently bought a 1966 Bel Air (don't have it yet). It has a 396 with a 3-speed manual column shift. It appears that possibly the B-bodies in 1966 may have come with two different 3-speed manual column shift transmissions. The option list shows M13 being a heavy-duty 3-speed transmission, which might have been a Ford product. Can anyone shed light on the 3-speed transmissions for 1966 big cars?
  9. Great work! I'm very envious of guys who have the talent you do. Not to mention patience. I have neither.
  10. I have a Tronxy XY-2 Pro. Works fine, but not a lot of support for it.
  11. My solution is not a car, although I have some miscellaneous things I could be doing with the ones I have. My COVID-fighter was a 3D printer. I've never ventured into this arena before, and the learning curve has been steep. I had to learn about the printer itself (no small task), the software to design the objects to be printed, and the software to translate the design files to files the printer can read. As frustrating as it has been at times, it's also been very rewarding. I've made fire extinguisher brackets for several of my cars, a reproduction spark plug loom holder for Buicks, holster
  12. I’m looking for a minty gas pedal for my ‘63 LeSabre. I’ve been told one for a Riviera will also work. Must be very nice with no cracks in ball mount area.
  13. I have no illusions about it being desirable. I was just curious.
  14. This is one of the seller's pics. I don't have the car yet, so no pics.
