Okay, more pics



single tank master cylinder, I plan to stay mostly original, but this will go.


fuel pump looks like it's not original style.


missing a horn too


the thermostat housing is shot.  I found a NOS one for $55 online.


The wire to the AC compressor was twisted together and covered with tape.  did power the compessor and it does lock and unlock as should.



The compressor is mounted solidly with a front a rear brace.  I saw no way to move it without opening the system.  There was no pressure in the lines.


The AC system is oddly complex.  Here is a cable operated switch of some kind. 







This is some line that was just loose, looks like it was for fuel?









Large carb with wiring going to it. Waiting on manual before I mess with it.



some vacuum lines are missing as well.





Compressor mounting









For an old car, it's amazing how hard the right hand bank's plugs are to get to.




pretty cool how the linkage runs inside the steering column.



some random tank hidden in the fender.



Oil filler neck and fuel pump



tag on carburetor.

The tank under the fender is the Vacuum Reservoir.
