Thanks Anthony. It's coming along slowly but surely.


One of the next things I need to do is the exhaust. The car didn't come with the back half of the exhaust, and the tailpipe hangar is gone as well. Anyone have an extra one I could buy? I *think* it's part #446868.

I figured you already checked this, but in the off chance you haven't, I believe this part should work:

https://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.d ... 30c~Z5Z5Z5~Z5Z5Z50000022D

EDIT: The above is marked for all models except the Caribbean convertible. I couldn't find the part number you posted in the parts list. Max Merritt shows the part number from the parts list below, 455014.

Below that is the Body and Chassis number index from Vol 28, No 4 Service Counselor, which shows, if I am understanding correctly, parts fitting Body 5467 will be listed as fitting 5411, the number listed in the parts list.

I would keep an eye on this thread:

To add to Kevin's answer, I'm early 30's and would echo the same. And I don't even have a family. I enjoy working on old cars because of my father, a huge car guy. But the reality is, it's quite expensive. And most guys my age a reminiscent of the cars of their youth, i.e. 80's and 90's imports. The classic car clubs are having and will continue to have trouble attracting young members. Not sure what the answer is, to be honest.

I must also share my appreciation for both Ross and Howard, who have both spent time helping me just start out on my project. Much thanks, and we are lucky to have you.

I don't believe PepBoys is actually gone. If you read the press releases, it seems they are leasing *some* of their parts only stores to Advance Auto/CarQuest. The Pep Boys services centers remain open...

Yeah, okay, and thanks. I was wondering if the website sucked, and if so, that would explain a very great deal.


I wonder if anyone reads their bulletin board and if a thread on it about getting responses would actually generate what I want, which is the simple courtesy of a reply. But they cannot reply to messages that never arrive or cannot be seen.


I sometimes feel a lot of those ads are guys putting out feelers to get validation on what they think their car is worth. I've been around car clubs my whole life, various makes and models. There's always a subset of people who have a their car perpetually "for sale" but at an asking price they know is too high so they know no one will go for it or they post ads just to get the validation in people showing interest, but not ever super motivated to sell.

If you look at the poster's history, he posted an actual photo of the car when he first listed it 2 weeks ago. Probably got no offers, so he posted photos when the car actually looked decent. It is disingenuous at best, IMO.

See the photo attached.

Re: Whitewall Tires.... Hmm....

I'm fairly uneducated on the topic, but I do recall hearing the same thing I read on Wikipedia regarding early whitewall adoption:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitewall_tire#cite_note-4

"The status of whitewall tires versus blackwall tires was originally the reverse of what it later became, with fully black tires requiring a greater amount of carbon black and less effort to maintain a clean appearance these were considered the premium tire; since the black tires first became available they were commonly fitted to many luxury cars through the 1930s. During the late-1920s gleaming whitewalls contrasted against darker surroundings were considered a stylish, but high-maintenance feature. The popularity of whitewalls as an option increased during the 1930s. "

The original premium of blackwall tires would also account for why the magazines showcase them more prominently, I'd imagine.
