Some more photos of it when it was listed on ebay last fall.  Odd mirrors on the fenders.  Did it come with the original seats or the later style shown in the ad photos?  Was the exterior side molding trim just stuck on with adhesive or did it it leave holes in the sheetmetal?

Details of throttle hand throttle linkage at pedal and cable routing would be nice to see

Unfortunately it was cut out here's a picture of what was left. I have a replacement that I'm putting in

Thanks Mike B, I've never seen those pictures.  The seats were original just the covers were wrong.  I was able to find some original seats with the original upholstery and I'll be putting those in.  The side moulding was riveted on.  The mirrors are pretty funky; part of the reason for the paint job.

What is the black coating inside the left rear quarter panel?  Also wonder why someone painted the rear panel black around the upper license plate mounting points?  Are you going to leave the dealer installed AC in the car or take it back to stock?

I'm also working on car #503 right now.  <....snipped.cjb.....>  This car even has the original water pump.

The original,  or one of the reproductions Brad had produced?

The one in 503 was the original. Brad used it as the reference for the reproductions he had made.

Hi , What a wonderful car which has been beautifully kept as it was left from the factory. I see lots of 1969 and early 1970 uniqueness . I can’t say all but some of them are , 

#1 The heater box has got “ 9K “ sticker as well as the chocks 

#2 The fire wall pad is textured “ meshed type “ 

#3 The clutch pedal stopper rubber is small 

#4 The hook for the jack holder on the floor has unique style , I have never seen it before. 

#5 The inspection lid has small tab , riveted?

#6 To my eyes , the  front over rider looked wide early type which has rubber nipples to secure the metal body . The front bumpers must be an early single bolt  type for each side .

I would like to see alphabet codes on the jack , it has three alphabet characters on the basement, does it say “ O  K  # “ ?

Yes very unique details you pointed out! My Z has the same details other than being stamped 01/70... 

I have not seen it very clearly but I do suspect a clear back glass and no defrost switch on the center console. 

The car is in great shape, amazing for the age! Congrats!!

I'm not sure what that is.  I couldn't see any damage behind it.  As to the rear panel black around the upper license plate mounting points I would imagine that was done during the first repaint but have no way of knowing for sure.  I am going to leave the dealer installed A/C in the car because I refurbished another system for this owner and he was very satisfied with the results.

Mike B. is correct, #503's water pump was used as the model.  Water pumps are coming along good.  Should be done soon.

Yes, it's an amazing car.  Here's a couple of photos of the jack that you asked for.IMG_0645.JPGIMG_0644.JPG

Thanks pictures, now we see your car has a jack which was made on 

O (1969),   K ( November) , A ( 1st ) . 

It is corresponding your car , some cars have earlier date than the cars were made .

Nice !!
