Very nice!!!
My 68 has most of those options, except mine is 1/2 ton.
Mine is a 396/Th400/PS/PB/AC optioned.

I bought mine in 1980. Yours looks better right now than mine did back then. Mine needs a complete rebuild. Body, engine, transmission...everything.....

Looking forward to work done to yours!!!

Now some small desasters:
Under time pressure batterie wrong connected (human error because the kill switch was mounted in the minus line -for me unimaginable. Effect: Smoke in the motor room, Result : 1x new batterie 1 x new regulator= very anoying.

Regarding search lights:
Hi Brian, this picture was created during the Herschey event days, indeed I have only one and a 1/2" drill, hard enough.

Regarding seats:
Yes I have removed all.
New on the seat is
Seat 12 cm Kaltschaum ( 4,7 " cold foam, polyurethane foam or poly foam)
Back rest 4 cm Kaltschaum ( 1,5")
All ordered by a local upholsterer,
Upholstering tools too, see picture.

Regarding CST guy:
Phil, thanks, would be all the time also a little bit from you inside and kept in memory.
By the way do you have an idea why brown leader was also below the seat?

Below original cover? I never went that far... I stopped removing layers when I saw the original.
