Scott;

So that is what a Grant steering wheel looks like. I have an old one hanging on the garage wall. Needs a hub. Instead the Pep-Boys quality one I have uses a different and more popular hub and horn button.

Thanks, you solved a decade old question I have had.

Wm.

Thanks, psivory. I sent them a message to get the right model #. Getting it, and a good pair of air shocks will go a long way to getting 'er where I want 'er.

How did that work out for you? My brother-in-law put some air shocks on his 63. He likes the stance but said he got a lot of "wheel hop" when drag racing. He had to install traction bars to cure that.

I guess either one could be, I did not notice the second inboard bracket on the seat the first time I looked.

Maybe somebody pimped his ride and the bracket holds the 3 lcd screens for the backseat.

I have only driven it twice so far, once with the min pressure of 25# and once with 150#. The ride is stiff with high pressure but I also put in all new poly bushings so that has stiffened it up.
With 25 in it the ride was fine.

I got mine off the shelf at Autozone, $68 with the air hose kit included. I ended up getting a different hose kit which allows me to pump each shock up individually (this kit also included brass valve stems) The kit that came with the shocks had a t-fitting which was plastic, so the two shocks are balanced with pressure. I went individual in case there was a problem with the back end being uneven at any point.

Actually, we had an Autozone open in town last year. I will need to check them out. My ideas far exceed my budget.

With individual lines it also handles better. When one shock shoots air over to the other side when hitting a dip in a curve you can see your knuckles turn white.
