  1. Yes, a # of threads already speaking to this already. However since you asked and as I also have a '74 tii, Valvoline VR1 or Brad Penn racing oil (as it's the old Kendall GT-1 formula). Both have higher levels of ZDDP which is essential for engines of this vintage. As I understand, the BP has slightly more ZDDP so I prefer it. You can order it by the case off Amazon.

  2. Couldn't you just take it to an auto detailer, or have a mobile detailer come to you and have them do it? Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  3. Looking forward to pix of the rebirth... Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  4. Dean showed promise as well, however his burgeoning racing career was cut short obviously. BTW his Speedster was recently found and it is confirmed to be the real deal. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  5. XKSS actually...one of 16 out of a planned 25 D-types converted for road use after Jaguar's withdrawal from racing at the end of the 1956 season. The remaining 9 burned at the Browns Lane plant fire in early '57. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  6. Completely different cars but surprisingly challenging to choose between the two. Neither of them are dual-purpose although you could drive a 550 to the track I suppose. 507's have a proper windshield, roll-up windows, leather seats, radio and both soft and hardtops. 550's are raw and visceral purpose-built racecars w/nothing extraneous/unnecessary. Their 4-cam engines are also a bit time consuming to tune/dial in. For practical purposes I'd probably have to take the 507 because of my height and the aforementioned, but I've had a love affair with 550 Spyders since elementary school so...[emoji53] BTW the Spyder pictured is a replica...[emoji6] Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  7. Perhaps I was being a tad optimistic/generous[emoji6]. There are those somewhat masochistic folks that like massive projects though... Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  8. Hmmm...early '74 tii VIN, nice color, sunroof, original nose for 1K? Even with the rust issues you couldn't lose putting 30-40K (or less if you have mad fab/welding/bodywork skills) into it to make it right. BIG project, but with the right buyer??? Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  9. Just followin' other esteemed folks' lead...whoops-a-daisy.[emoji51] Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  10. Umm...I think you've found it.[emoji6] Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  11. You should post this separately under cars for sale, regardless of any affiliation or not. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  12. Somehow I can't see my car being done in 2 wks...[emoji23][emoji24] Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  13. Talk to Steve K. as he IS the faq board. He and Eric Friis are organizing a Bay Area Caravan down there. Everyone's meeting on Friday 11/1, 7:30 a m at the Peet's at 755 Cochrane Rd, Morgan Hill. As that's probably way too early considering where you're coming from, 02princessLisa, Tom Jones, etc may be going and they're all located in the Marin/Sonoma area. Steve should know...

  14. Price seems more than fair considering that it's a roundie with a sunroof, has some desirable upgrades and was presumably partially restored by 2002AD at some point. I would definitely list what you have done during your ownership (i.e. the "just for fun parts" you allude to) and also take some pictures of the underside of the car and the trunk as well, removing the spare so potential buyers can see what the condition of the spare tire well is like. Is it mistakenly titled as a '73 though? I ask because the bumpers are not only tucked like '72's (and earlier) but the front bumperettes would be correct for '69-'72 02's as well, with the black lower side mouldings being introduced in '70. Best of luck! Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
