Junkyard score!!!

All hail the Restoration Gods and Junkyard Gods for bestowing upon me the great find of an unmutilated Tilt Freakin' Stearing column for my '78 Nice and smooth, complete and was cheap!

The only thing I would have found more exciting would be a zf 5speed. . .


alright, just had to share the high point of my day

A set of doors, complete, no missing parts, including working vent windows WITH handles, that are in decent shape or at least re-skinable (is that a word?) That's to start with. The list grows...........................

WOW, I was thinking maybe a peice of trim, or a **** or something. . .but doors like that? Man, I think I have better odds of finding an unmolested Dana 60 front end

Actually, the doors are in good shape considering their age. It's just the usual rust at the bottom of both and the vent window handle on the drivers side is broken off. But all the trim is there. Just wishful thinking on my part. I'm happy with it, rust and all. Whad'ya expect for 36 years young?

I hear yah, the 73-79 doors are the same way. The ones on my 78 are rusted out at the bottom, and all the ones I have seen at the junkyard are the same way. Lots of glass and trim and what not though

You ever check out EastWood? They have EVRYTHING for doing body work. Skinning tools and all

If I had it to do over, I'd never have left Virginia without FIRST bagging as many 302 HO engines as they had at Johnson's Mustang and Truck...

They were the overhead cam setup, and he wanted $1,000 each for 'em at the time.
