Re: Craigslist Find: 1962 96 Dusty Time Capsul in NJ
Did you see all three chapters of the Barn Find Story. If not, I can send them to you. If you did, then you are up
to speed, as we did not complete the brakes before we had to tuck it away for the winter, and the garage is
packed too damn tight to get much work done on it. However, we have sourced most of the brake parts and hope to
tackle that project either over the winter or as soon as spring springs! I am still not certain that I have
the correct front wheel cylinders, or the correct master cylinder for a 1962 96, so if anyone can clarify
part numbers or where I can source these parts, I would be grateful.I also still need a nice original (not
perfect) front right bumper end, and a thermostat.
Not yet ready to part with that car, as it will probably stay as a permanant part of the collection because I
waited a long time to find a nice original bull nose stroker.
