Hey, my old red flathood! I gave this and another one from a GT to a guy in Orleans about 10 years ago. He put the GT hood on a blue 244 that I believe Amerbritcan now owns. The hood from the car though sits on a buddy's 84 244T and is covered with carbon fiber stuff. But I never knew what became of the red one. It's from a 1975 245 by the way. If only I knew then what would be popular today, I wouldn't have given them away. Hell, I've thrown out enough R-sport guage clusters and other rare parts to make a Volvo junkie cry. That's what happens when you try to sell stuff and cheap people try to lowball.
Congrats on the purchase of your wagon. It looks pretty solid. I'm sure I'll see it around as I'm only 5 minutes from Almonte and I shop there all the time.

BTW, if you want exact colour matching paint, get the real stuff from Metro Paint Supply on Lapperiere. 20 bucks will buy you a can that will cover all the spots on your car. Just bring them your colour code.

i have about 14 hours into it right now, i sanded all the rock chips and feathered all the edges, have about 6 coats of primer and sanded in between each one, should be ready for paint tomorrow

on to the pics







yes i know it has three holes...... that is the way it came to me looks like it started out as a single squirter, then was drilled for a dubble, so i am going to make a triple squirter out of it

I may have some parts for trade if you're interested. Maybe we can swing some sort of three-way deal with Amerbritcan for the K cam I have perched on my workbench that would work nicely in his car...

I'm all ears. This would be a perfect time to do a cam swap, though I really should get it running before I consider dumping money into performance upgrades.

Check my post on your 242 teardown page. I have a 142 on the way from the States, and it has a slushbox, so the most important piece to me is the pedal box and rubber gear shift boot. I may also be interested in the headliner and sunroof liner, as well as the sunroof assembly, depending on how much you want for them. I also will need the c-pillar interior plates, broken or not, but I'm guessing they are probably broken, as they all break...

I'll have a look at my stash, but its mostly starters, switches, relays, handbrake consoles, grilles, glass, gauges, instrument clusters, tachometers, Ipd front bar, new front suspension bits, new brake rotors, lots of side trim in any flavour. I've got a lot of stuff that would add nicely to Amerbritcan's car, so if he has anything you want, this could all work out nicely.

At U-Haul, picking up a rental trailer:

"Sir, let's check the lights. Ok, left signal."

"Ummmm, the cold start injector is flooding the motor."

"Sir, how about the brakes?"

"I think that humming is the frequency valve..."
