    Just picked this up
    It's a daily driver, so restoration will be slow, but it's in great shape!
    Update and lots of changes!

    Yah It's a Daily Driver at this point in my life, I'm only 21. Quite odd to most people. My other love in life is bicycles, so if the daily decides to die I still have something I love to fall back on.

    It's going to be a slow process, first thing is to find another 2.4 straight six that I can rebuild.

    I have a couple months off work in the summer so that's when I'll really be tearing into it.

    Stock rims with half/full moons (haven't decided yet), rechromed everything, flat electric blue paint job. It's going to look really nice when all is said and done.

    Nice little ride I always thought a 2.3 turbo coupe motor would be cool in one of the round bodys...

    I know how that is. I'm 21 and I use my 72 as a commuter car in LA. Stupid? You bet. Awesome driving a kickin' car everyday? You bet.

    Don't know where you located but I am trying to give a way a 2.4 that was running well when pulled from the car.

    Looks real nice already. I mean look at the bumpers, they have already been rechromed. Makes me miss the little 62 that I had. Keep us posted and good luck with the new blue colour and wheel combo you are planing.

    Does anyone know if they ever made a dome style cap for that style centerline rim?

    If so I'm thinking about anodizing them with a chrom cap.

    Looks nice in blue, but i'm not sure if I like the centerlines painted, they are great rims but need to be just polished.:cool:
    In flat black they look like ordinary steel wheels:eek:
    But it's your car.
    Did you see that Donc will give a engine away !!!!!
    That is a great thing to do :D
