I am moving to the sticks and need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. I hope someone will continue my 1962 Starfire project to its completion. It has a special order VIN, and all options except cruise, electronic eye, and power vent.

A/C convertible... I haven't tried to recharge the A/C yet. Dashpots seem to be working.

The car is fun to drive. I have been taking it to work for a few months now, dependably. I installed a new stereo, a Pioneer, just because, under the seat: AM/FM, iPod, USB, CD, remote control. Two 4" Pioneer speakers replace the 6x9 in the dash, two 3 way Jenson 6 1/4" speakers in the doors, and one 6 1/4" in the back seat.

The body metal needs rust repair all around, most notably in the rear passenger quarter panel. Other spots are bubbling. If you want to restore, I have located a rust-free Starfire donor body in CA for $1500. Otherwise, I was bid $2500 for fabrication repairs if I removed and replaced the trim myself.

The top operates as it should, but the fabric is gone. I recommend a light blue replacement to make a great and correct combination with the Wedgwood blue paint.

To the good:

• Motor runs strong, no smoke

• Original 4GC Rochester newly rebuilt

• Original, serviceable blue upholstery, front and back

• Gas tank restored

• All chrome and aluminum panels are present and in good condition

• New fuel line installed, tank to carburetor

• Mallory fuel pump

• Brake system completely restored (power booster excluded, but working)

• New shocks, all around

• New wheel bearings

• New alternator (one-wire)

• Rebuilt original starter

• Convertible top frame works as it should

• New power antennae

• Courtesy lights work

• Electric windows aligned and functioning

• New tuxedo 80/20 correct carpet

• Heater and A/C switches rebuilt

• All A/C parts correct and in place: Dished P/S pulley, 5 blade fan, 3 core radiator, 3 groove harmonic balancer, etc.

• Solid frame, no breaks or repairs, surface rust

• New NOS exhaust system, with dual mufflers and resonators

• Electrical components sorted out: dash lights, heater, A/C, etc.

• All vacuum hoses replaced and functioning

• COPO custom order (!)

Dozens of duplicate parts will be included with the sale: second convertible top bow, chrome trim, fans, fuel pumps, light relay, power seat motor, wedgewood blue interior panels, kick panels, heater resistor, digital shop manuals, extra NOS wiring harnesses, more...
