I'm glad that everyone enjoyed the information about my car. Thanks for all the nice comments.

I have a little more information regarding the stainless trim piece on the doors. Both doors have the same style trim which uses screws to retain the weather strip. I believe this is another subtle difference found in early production cars. I've included a picture similar trim on another car which shows that there are screw holes and no retaining tabs. Hopefully, this will help to clear up the confusion.

For fun, I've also attached copies of the original window sticker and ROT sheet for the car.

If there are other details anyone would like information about, feel free to ask. I will be glad to help if I can.

Truly a time machine trip. One would expect the smell of a new car as one opened the door.

Default what is that?

So as a newbie, I have to ask.In the photograph of the engine, the thing on the driver's side, close to the radiator, wing nut on top. Q:What is it? I do not have that part as I recall. Mine is a 60, 352,AC. Thanks for the enlightenment.

That's the power steering pump. You should have one unless you have manual steering.
