      I'm not sure what you mean by "car show add-ons" but here is a video.

            Welcome to FABO, beautiful car and a great story to go with it.
            ''Car show add-ons'' would be the '72 rallye wheels, and the various under hood pieces like the aluminum radiator and flex fan, aftermarket intake and headers, etc.
            To me, it doesn't matter at all.
            Just enjoy the car and relive your youth is what it's all about, that's the key...........

              Okay - understood. I didn't want the radiator, but I get it. I'm pretty sure the wheels were available in '69 though.
              I'm very happy with the performance upgrades like the headers, intake and Holley dual pumper - not sure what the internal changes were during the rebuild (I didn't own it and can't track it down), but the factory 275 hp rating is well below what it is putting to the rear wheels. Headers and intake are about 50 hp worth at least.

                As I said before, it's your car and just enjoy it.
                BTW, the Rallye wheels didn't become available until the '70 model year, and the ones you have on the car have '72 center caps.
                If you like them, there's no harm or foul to having them on there, it was merely an observation............
