On December 12, 2007, we picked up a console and complete header panel from Craigslist. The grille was fully intact and the amber turn signal lights is what George wanted. I spent time cleaning up the console. Finally, we got a break in the schedule and the weather and I got them installed.
Yep, it is out in the snow...
I found a car being parted on Craiglist, and finally got the time to go out and check it out. I picked up the side marker with the chrome surrounds, the front valance (a rare thing on a Mustang II) and the complete grille from a 1978 fastback with T-Tops. The front end was already cut out of the car, or I would have come home with another project car.
After several trips to Pessemier's Complete Automotive with no good results, I ordered a rebuilt carb from carburetorexchange.com. It came in and I made the swap. It is better, but I still need a tune to dial it the rest of the way in.
There are cruise in spots at Krispy Kreme in Puyallup on Friday nights and at Forza on Steele Street on Saturdays at noon. On May 8, 2008, the Ghia made the 100,000 mile mark. The photo of the speedometer was taken when I got home.
