Default Wow!!

First time I've seen this thread, what an amazing 442 survivor!! I didn't realize these style fuel pumps could be restored, I'll have to look into this for the original from my GTO.

Those crimp style pumps are used on Fords too, they can be rebuilt to look new.

Back on the 442 today. I got the speaker out to send for reconing, and dropped the tank to clean and get the build sheet.

One question I do have.....did these cars go through a "black out" process? Just noticing where there is paint, and where there is not.





The standard gray paint found on the front of the spirals



No paint found on the front of the brake lines
