DERBY IS DONE! - May 25, 2019

DERBY IS DONE! @northbaybavarian Rick had completed Derby’s engine to ORIGINAL SPECS in less than 3 weeks! That’s including rebuild of transmission, carburetor, suspension, painting, bead blasting... it’s really remarkable and the quality of work is superb!! Unlike TESORO’s restoration with the exception of the body and paint, DERBY’s engine and mechanical restoration was quite enjoyable! No stress at all! It was a great honor and pleasure to work with Rick! He does projects as if he was working on his own car. There’s so much passion and care that was put into this rebuild project that I think he had a lot of fun doing it! 😉 I can’t wait to show you what under the bonnet! ☺️Now its time to break in the engine and take Derby to the beach! 🌊🏄🏻‍♀️👙

Not sure I have seen clear boots before. Very nice. Looks like a first rate installation. You must be very excited. First drive video forthcoming?

Clear CV boots were only for the early 1600's.. Amazing aren't they? 😉 . 

I've done a lot of research with the help of some magnified reading of the magazines and brochures for the 1600's. Friends like Tom Jones, Bill Arnold, and Conner Elkington from Vintage Autobahn were guiding me in the right direction for source of invaluable information and parts.

I see you running Koni shock, is that with stock spring. How do you like them? and if you can post the model #... I like the clear cv boot too. Do you know where I can get them? I'm going through my front suspension and notice the cv boot is missing, somewhere in cyber space lol. Trying to get my 19651600nk Brown Turkey done for So Cal Vintage in Nov.

They were on the NKs too - I replaced mine a few years back. I’ve read that some people have experienced problems with new clear boots but certainly the ones I bought have never leaked a drop.

I absolutely love your car, and your dedication to keep it original is admirable.  So many of the early 1600's get converted to 12 Volt and run alternators, swap in short neck differentials and sway bars and convert to spin-on oil filters.  Seeing your car puts a smile on my face.  Keep up the good work!

P.S.  Have Rick change out your coil 😉

Looks really nice.  I see you found the embossed hood trim.  Hope to see it next year at Brisbane.

Beautiful car, Lisa.  I'm glad it's all finally done.  I see you found a good, embossed nose trim.  Looks amazing.

It will be MidAm's 20th year...Derby would make a fine addition to the crew.

Looks great! I’m sure you’re thrilled with the results. It’s time to Go and Show... One Lap Marin is next Saturday is a good first and fun outing. Another ‘02 would be welcome (last year there was only a single ‘02 hanging out with the Alfa’s).

I did get invited by Richard Gale but it’s father day weekend and I’ll be in Monterey with family. I do hear One Lap is such a fun event and it’s on my calendar for next year... 😉

Yes, One Lap is fun even if it’s only for the morning C&C at Bon Air. The event can bring out some of Marin’s finest cars as well as quirks. We’ll BOLO Derby at Vintage Oaks next month.

Very nicely done. I was wondering about the valve cover, is that only on the 1600? Like the simple look.

Clear CV boots were only for the early 1600's..

 

As well as 2002s with VINs lower than 1664761...the changeover was one of many that occurred at the beginning of calendar year 1969.  While most changes dealt with new Federal safety and emission standards that took effect 1-1-69, others were either cosmetic or engineering changes.

 

And those clear boots won't work with later CV axles, or at least I'm told this.  Clear boots go with oil (they're clear so you can check the oil level); later rubber boots contain grease.

PS--Derby looks, great--but now are you gonna want to actually drive such a pretty car?  Which one will we see at Mid America next year?

The very early 2002s used that plain valve cover too; dunno when they switched to the ribbed one, but I believe it was before model year '69 production began in Sept '68.

There is an extensive thread on the evolution of the M10 valve cover but I’m not sure how to find it
