      FNG, '66 Dart GT blah,blah. Typed all that stuff about a week ago, but that got lost...

      IMG_0039.JPG

      Hamtram car delivered to the south, has service stickers from Florida panhandle and the normal high rust of a Fla car. Factory air and tint, 273/2bb column auto, pwr steering, 14" wheels and some more options. Said to run, oil is clean, more to come...

        This junk runs and drives! Brake master leaks, water pump leaks green(!), pwr steering HP hose has a split and the bulkhead connectors are fried at the B+ connections...

        Sounds like an old FLA car to me... except for the actual coolant. Finally got the trunk open. A better condition '65 trunk lid was stuffed in there.

        No with that rust? Had to come from up there somewhere.

        What you see is a sun baked sea coast car. High rot and rust around every bit of bright work, paint baked off the Earl Shyster $99.95 color change.

        Around here, the bottom foot of the body rots off while the front upper control arm mounts get very weak and the rear spring mounts do the same.
