I saw this forum a while back when I was lookin for a 1200 and I decided to join last weekend when I bought one!
Anyways, on to what you probably clicked on this thread for. The car!
Its a 71 coupe that is pretty much all stock other than the weber carb. Its got a few dents and some really rusty floors and one rusty fuel tank! My plan is to get it so I can drive it to work and hopefully patch the floors and do some body work later down the road.
I dropped the tank earlier this week and the fuel was about the color of the car! The search for a new tank has begun... I found a few different places that list the tank on their site, but don't say its in stock, and don't say it isnt. They are also in the range of 350-400 bucks! but I don't really think this tank will hold after rust removal.
Today I used a gas can to get it tuned up. New plugs, adjusted the points and timing. It runs pretty good now, but I think I'll adjust the valves and maybe clean the carb next weekend. How bad that gas was, some of it had to make it to the carb! I also started pulling the dash apart to fix some things, the speedo is toast! Searching for a new one yields the same results as the gas tank so far. Other than that, everything else works after a little cleaning and some new bulbs.
Now the important part, Pics!
On the way home
Nice clean gas....
and the rest
