  1. Thank you . You have a tan top boot? Are these reliable cars? They seem cheaper to fix than most..do u have dealer option book, brochure?
  2. Thanks .. they're cute and have power seats windows n a deluxe interior . Cute car for the Shore..
  3. Just think it's a cute little wannabe woody convert. But r they reliable? What issues do they get? Where do they rot first?
  4. Found a decent one.. always liked them weren't sure if they're reliable quick enough where to check for rot what goes on them I should look for or what year n options are best..??? Any help is great .
  5. Dont know these cars other than by sight. What do you guys like? What's the best year n options?? What are problems to look for??
  6. Yes, he now wants to sell it n not fiddle with it . Nice body and very good original interior/ original top, low miles..

  10. Parts dont look expensive, or am I fooling myself?
  11. Update.. oil doesn't smell burnt. I hear now when he puts battery in it sparks.. In going to talk to that mechanic during the week.. do 74 fans attach directly to the crankshaft or does it engage after a bit.. he said something about it free floating?
  12. Sorry I'm no mechanic, n I wasnt there..It wont turn over as I understand it does nothing. No it never started again.. I'm now thinking either seized or shorted wires from sitting n rodents might have gotten to some wires..you're right it could be fuel but generally they buck n stall.. Does it make sense now?
  13. My friend called me with an issue he is having with a 74 Eldo. He bought the car after it was sitting a long time in the garage. If I have the story right it was brought to a general mechanic ..oil change filter n battery were changed , etc. That part I'm checking on.. He took it on a 40 mile trip no problem. The next day drove it on some in town chores and it died while driving n wouldn't restart.. (btw the car has 45000 original on it. . ) He had it towed to a service center. Couldn't find a problem .. didnt lose oil or over heat.. it wont do anything now! Any ideas what to look at? I thought vapor lock or motor seized ?? He's gonna try to turn the fan .. Any of you have things to check to help figure it out.. Thanks
  14. Similar situation. I worked in NYC in Real Estate for 20 yrs. There were shows that would call us and asked if we had 2 houses they could use on their TV program . Apparently the buyers already bought a place, they needed us to offer the 2 they never picked and rejected after the fact. Talk about unrealistic, what agent, or buyer for that matter, looks at just 3 homes and buys one of the 3 ? Really ? Yes, it's all for the show! Guess this was too.
  15. Collected these items for my car.. sold the car.. so now the literature should go to a good home.. should be worth $95. For the lot..
  16. Got these with another car. Not sure which year model it's from I'm guessing.. they should be worth $120..plus postage
  17. Thanks..so 68. But the side vent /dual exhaust..confused me about model. Glad we agreed aftermarket vent...
  18. I think someone just added a vent to the side
