Nice job, melted!

Mine's not getting nominated for anything anytime soon... That dash that you sent me (Christ, it was you, wasn't it???) is still in the box sitting on the trunk.

I hope to have that resolved this summer, but still nothing like yours. (Sooo jealous....)

lol. I meant console. I am no where NEAR pulling the dash... lol.

What's the build date on yours anyway? My build date is in '71, but the car is titled as a '73 for some damn reason...

late 71 , so its a 72. I have heard others say the same, I think because the early ones were 350's in Europe and over here , there was no reference to them and then rebadged in 73 with the 450
Just a guess
Wish I were closer I would come over and help you get yours out of hibernation. I kinda have mine to the point were I dont need to work on her, although she has developed a miss at idle and needs the oil changed

Hi Melted. I was looking at your pics. The interior looks great. Is that a new dash you have or is it a dash cap?

I contemplated a new dash,actually removed one from a parts car to see if I could do it. Decided cap was a good thing. Looks fine and when done properly , you cannot tell ..

Good to know a cap is acceptable for a Concours d'Elegance. I guess they are being realistic. Where did you get the cap from?

That's the way I like them. Garage queens are not for me.

gotta admit, some of the drivers out there scare me, but I am careful, and much more so when I am in this car, does not keep me from using the HP
The car is a blast to drive, especially top down!
