After nearly 5 months of waiting, my 66 C code convertible finally arrived today. I took a BIG gamble, as I had not seen the car in person, had not been on here and discovered Shermatt (et al) to check it out, but did have a couple of guys that I know through the HAMB check her out. They reported an honest 10ft car with no bog, only some superficial cosmetic stuff, a few misaligned panels but basically a decent car.

Was a little nervous when I went to get her this morning as while it isn;t an extortionate amount of money to risk, it would still hurt some. Having got her home, cleaned up, washed and checked oil, water, fluids, etc, new battery and checked what I could, I started her up and it was the sweetest sound. Drove her up and down the rear lane of my house a few times.

It's a decent car (keep reminding the war room that it's 45 years old ) with some interesting panel alignment, will need a new top in a year or two but is fine for now.

Plan is to get her licensed, convert to front disc brakes in 6 months or so, next winter will refresh the engine and gearbox, but drive the wheels off her in the meantime.

She was named LulaMae by my 5 year old daughter and it seems to have stuck.

Here's a picture of what she looked like before she migrated. Pretty much the same now.

Today, you couldn't punch the smile of my face.


I'm planning on living forever - so far it's working out well...

Nice car mate. Any more pics or details?

Kind of embarrassing that your 5 year old came up with "lulamae" and the best I could do is "Q"

Amen.
