Default My Golde Top

Hi William, that is interesting that it has a kilometer speedometer, a German information plate under the hood, and a German insignia on the grill! I am wondering if this might have been a special order Tbird. Alan Tast and "Fuz" Johnson might have some interest in this!

As for putting it back to the original color, that is entirely up to you. What does the Data Plate say about the interior color? I wonder if it was black and white? If you like the color combination it is now, stay with it. If you want to make it an all original car, then you have a paint job and possibly an interior restoration facing you. Plan on spending a considerable amount of money on those two items alone for an excellent paint job and interior restoration.

As for posting pictures, we would love to see a good clear show of the Data Plate and of course, the car, engine, trunk, interior, any documentation regarding those items you mentioned, etc.. See my welcoming comments to you on how to post pix on this Forum in New Members Welcoming Forum.
