Smile 61 to 63 Coupe Maintenance

Hi All,

Are there any members who own a 61 to 63 hardtop and can suggest preventative maintenance on specific and/or all areas? I am picking up my first bird tomorrow and any tips in keeping her in tip top shape from engine adjustments to mechanical tweaks would be appreciated. I have not owned a vehicle with a carburetor for 25 years and have forgotten how to maintain them. What would be the best gas to use and the best gas station to use? Or is gas all the same to these birds? This bird I purchased has a Ident plate issue for sure and the rear power window is sticking. I plan to attempt and learn as much as I can about fixing what gremlins pop up time from time. It would be great if any little quirks that have come up and have been posted on this site would have the thread directed my way. As I work on my bird I will post any abnormalities I may find for those who have experienced similar and/or are looking for a solution. Thanks to all that reply and help build this thread.
