SOOOOOOOO.....here it is boys and girlsThe chronical timeline of work done and condition of "Betty"
I bought car from a police department liquidation as it was originally intended for some far off dream of a police museum or historical display ?Anyway, well cared for mechanically and not really modified outside of its factory options or production.
1. I changed fuel tank (with new, all lines up to the engine, as well as had the carburetor rebuilt professionally as to prevent old gas problems as car sat....
2. All Spark Plugs, Wires, Cap rotor and Points done before even starting and beginning to drive her
3. Brakes on all 4 wheels as well as 4 BRAND NEW TIRES with 0 miles on them.
4.. Interior restoration ......with passenger floor boar, New carpeting front to bac, Leather seat cover on front benc, Package tra, Trunk compartment sealed and carpeted as well in Black 80;20 loo, Headliner perfect and no rips or tears.

Candy Apple Red Metallic from House of KolorFirst... chrome and trim removed from car and steel wooled and buffed out mirror car sanded down to metal and sprayed with a Dupont Epoxy primer for smooth finish. Base coat Acrylic Enamel Black then sprayed 2 coats Metallic Candy Matte Black Flames are 3M vinyl and can remove without harm
The Good as she is a good solid car,there are some disclosure of things needed...
