"The saga continues...."
A week later than planned, I "FINALLY" got home. After loading up the car in Anacortes,WA. at the home of George Willet, and thanks again for your hospitality George, I headed south. Since I had only exchanged emails and phone calls with Daron Walker at Vintage Customs in Auburn, WA., I thought I'd stop and meet him and his crew. Somewhere close to Daron's shop in Auburn, the transmission in the truck decided to take a dump. There was a trail of fluid down the parking area and a puddle under the truck when he came out to meet me as I pulled up. We proceeded to unhook the trailer, and Jay lead me over to the Auburn Ford dealer. After spending the afternoon there it was determined that a snap ring that holds a clutch pack together had broken and thrown a few piece through the case, and that the clutch pack was coming apart. Because the original warranty had expired, and the extended one was in place, they had to wait until an inspector came to look at everything before anything could be done. Well, after waiting for 6 days and paying a $50 deductible, I got the truck back and headed home Thursday morning. During this time, Jay took the car and trailer to has house which they said would be safer than leaving it out back at the shop, and I spent a vary long weekend at an uncle's house in Port Orchard.
I'd like to take a moment to thank Daron and the guys at Vintage Customs for their help in my time of need. If you ever find yourself in the Northwest, stop by their shop, they're a nice bunch of people.
I've attach a couple of pictures of the car I got from George, and like I said in my 1st post, all of the parts I need are undamaged.
As a point of interest, if there are any of you hoping I might be selling anything off of this parts car, there's nothing to sell, as I only got the body shell. All of the mechanical stuff had been removed. I will however let everyone know if there are any useful body parts left after I salvage what I need.
'72 Super --> SOLD, '67 GTV --> SOLD
