VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
I brought the car home today 4/4/2011.   Briggs Body Tag no. 2252 8804. Original color was  Green... now Maroon... nice, but I wish they'd left it green.  No Brakes.    4/22/2011 finished putting in new master cylinder kit, wheel cylinder kits, all three hoses, all new brake springs, new hard line from master cylinder to rear hose.  The car now stops but I need to adjust the brakes and pedal play. Next up will be a new pinion seal and gasket for the differential, removal of what remains of the Electromatic clutch paraphernalia and investigation into the shift linkage which sticks in first gear.
