138 CODE

Well folks, attached is the auction we won ($50,000) via eBay in two pictures. Car got here, Houston, Texas enclosed ($1800). The eBay seller was tln1988, Shelby Noyes, his phone number is in the original auction. When you read his story about the car, quite impressive, obviously?We bought it!We knew we were going to make some changes to the car and fix some issues he mentions in his ad. Well, here we are four months later selling the car after sorting out the ?show car?. For those of you who know these cars, you will understand all the work we did to the vehicle after the purchase. That?s why always better to buy a car that is built, rather than do it yourself?.for sure!

Our intentions, initially were to remove/ replace the red pinstripe and the power drum brakes (4) and then sell her. Power drum brakes are like landing a spaceship on the moon. You get one shot and then you have to wait for the vacuum to build back up, not good at all?. We ordered four-wheel disc brakes that were both slotted and drilled, look and work amazing! We also took the pinstripe off which was simply a stick-on, we understand what they were after, which was to match the interior, but was cheesy. We ordered Goodrich radial redlines (staggered). The look set-off the car and the stance.

Now comes the work we did, that we didn?t plan on. If you watch the video link provided in the original auction,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22cEyWeuOhg

the car indeed looks like a show car, but let?s just say we are neurotic when it comes to our cars. We know them as though they were our own kids. This one looked amazing, but needed some work, here?s the list of what we did.

  • Replace Right Front Lower Ball Joint
  • Install 4 disc brakes including Brake Booster and Master Cylinder
  • Install new brake lines and Hoses
  • Weld brackets for rear brake lines and hoses to rear axle
  • Replace Axle bearings, rear axle cover seal and replace axle gear oil and add friction modulator

So, as we say here in Texas, ?There you go?

Amazing to us, what people classify as a ?show car?, well now it?s as close to new without being new!

So, for all of you reviewing the work you be the judge.

Mind you, if you could identify all these corrections, or find the necessary parts and do the work, what would that be worth to you?

Vehicles, like these are a passion for us to work on, and yes we are all old guys! To you the buyer, thank goodness! Some day we will all be gone, as will the knowledge to create correct ?Show cars?
