Wow!! I have saved these pic for reference when I work on my '16. I do worry about your tail light, looks like it's hanging on by one bolt!
VERY nice original car!!

I put the fan belt on and hood drove it around the yard never overheated it sure runs good! Starts on mag except once I flooded it and had to get batt. First T ride for me! A lot smoother than I thought! I haven't been on road yet but I got it in high gear it steers better than I expected! I closed the ex. Cut out and after burning out the oil and mouse nests you can hardly hear it run. Oil change and check the front wheel bearing next on list. David the tail lite is solid its bent the muffler clamps are falling apart

Paul -- I once saw a NOS brass fan pulley like the one on your car. That's the only other one I've ever seen with that much crown to it. Usually they are worn flat.

You have a very low-mileage car there. Congratulations on that, and thanks for sharing it with us.

Every picture I see of it, I like it even more! It looks to be one of the finest true survivors I have ever seen!
Drive carefully, but do enjoy that car! W2

Paul: I've liked every photo you've posted. Congratulations on a remarkable journey. It appears the upholstery liked the application you put on! Keep on T-ing, and do keep us posted on your progress!

There is a product called Fluid Film made by Eureka Chemical Co. 234 Lawrence Ave. South San Fransico, CA www.fluidfilm.com that I bought at Bond Auto Parts. It is made with lanolin and claims to be a rust stopper and preventive as well as a lubricant. Have not used it yet but will before next winter.
