We are doing a total teardown on this car. Rough guess is 2.5 years. No intentions of FULL RESTORATION due to planned bolt on modifications. Toploader 4 speed, 70 block, 71 closed chamber heads, Ford performance intake. you get the picture.

I noticed your Marti shows the car came with Radial tires. I've only seen that on a couple of Marti reports here. I believe there was a thread about different alignment specs being needed for radials if my memory is correct.

Yes there was Mike. I am also curious about those specs as my car came with E70's and now has the equivalent in a radial.

Cool options! Also, I never seen the non ram air car get a two tone hood...that's different. I'm curious if it originally had the twist hood locks also. Any brackets still on the radiator support?

Based on the green I found under the locks, I'm pretty sure this is the original hood. Someone painted it red at some point and the guy I bought it from just sprayed the entire car in primer (I guess he thought that would help preserve it). And that was how it sat for 4 years. Hell he even left the the tape on the chrome so you know I've got my work cut out. I'll try to find the thread about the radial alignment. Which brackets are you referring to? If you mean for the locks, yeah they are there I took the locks off the hood to check for rot. Thanks

Cool. That supports the fact if it's a factory two tone hood then it came with twist locks.

So what do I need to do? Just sand the hood down to see what the Tu tone color was? Or does some body know? White, Black, Silver???

I bet it was black but who knows without sanding? It could have been ardent (silver).

Sanding it will be. Poor Rocketfoot has been tring to do my banner and everytime I get more info on the car, I'm asking him to change it because I intend to do the colors right.
