Thought I would share some photos of my progress.  Tried to match the colors as close as possible.  Hope to have it together by the end of the month in time for Tucson in May...

Let me know what you would like to know. It isn't a full restoration. Restoring the suspension work as the rubber was all dry rotted and the upper control arms had replacement ball joints

I just like the pictures!!  I would love to do my car over and make it more correct.  Unfortunately when I did it the first time I wasn't concerned about marks and orginal parts.  I replaced most of the suspension without a thought, and threw out the original stuff...

Well when I did my car, I was not too concerned about paint marks and daubs.  I did take pictures of some of the Marks but god knows where they are.  If I ever take it apart again, and may try to recreate the correct marks.

Why is there a shut off on that?  Why do some cars have it and some do not?  Mine is SJ OCT 64 too, but I didn't put a shut off in it.

it's temperature sensitive. valve opens when temp reaches certain point to create a small vacuum leak to increase idle speed. only a/c cars received this item.

Its not a shut off (that "arm" is not a shut off) but a vent or sorts if I understand correctly.  Helps with idle in certain situations one certain (ones with the part) cars

Only 65 San Jose cars with A/C or all 65's with A/C?

Little more detail work...Waiting on the Eaton pump to be rebuilt.  Decided not to do the paint mark on the outer passenger side tie rod until I can confirm the color...Stock exhaust manifolds back on the car after about 10 years of running headman headers and dual exhaust...

Chris, curious as to what the sprayed white mark on the passenger spring, mine Dearborn springs have exact color markings on both springs, yet one has an additional white markings (not sprayed though so could be a Dearborn thing).
