So, did the early Flint built cars have the aluminum data plate masked off like the Fremont built cars did ??

I see “day 2” side exhaust, cool.

Thanks, Chris

I havenít pulled front drums to see what shoes are there. Iíll do that today.

I would say mine is original. You can see where it looks like they lay something over trim tag and spray firewall

Iíve known about car for a couple years never saw it. Got a message with pictures last Sunday morning that car was available. I was first one in. I gathered up trailer and the usual barn find extraction equipment and headed out.
Car was purchased by guys father in 1970. Parked it in 1975. Itís numbers matching complete solid car. 1 repaint. Solid floors. Original 55 year old top that is in remarkable shape.
Only thing missing is carb, fuel pump and fan ďit has a flex fan on itĒ
It has a couple day 2 items. Thrush side pipes and dual electric fuel pumps mounted back by tank and what looks like homemade traction device
Iíve had a couple cool finds in my day but as of now this ones my ďholy grailĒ find.

Anybody ever see a decal like this. Its located on the drivers side vent window on the chevelle. A friend of mine who has a Ď69 L78 car bought new at same dealership as mine and has the same decal on his car told me the dealership owners son said they put these Bowtie decals on cars they sold so their gas attendants knew car was bought new at dealership and it entitled them to a discount on gas.
