No I didn't get the Anza style exhaust. I am watching a Simmons system but decided to go with NOS stock because I want it to be quiet. As I type this I'm not really sure why... Lol
YES you did
also from the look of it you can separate them

minor updates
raided a 71 144 (west coast is the best coast)
- crack free dash (well there is a small one but you cant see it once installed - driver corner by the a pillar)
- ipd sways
- waffle mats
- brown carpet that I will dye black
- Mallroy dizzy
- dent free hood
- newer HIF6s
- window scrapers
- door seals


It's time for me to start working on this car to make room for other parts ....
decided to keep the b20 since I got some cool parts for it now












I also sourced 4th Hayashi center, lip and drum with bolts! It comes on a BMW pattern so I will have to get it drilled and filled (beggars cant be choosers)

Yes I did. I'm not sure what I meant by that, maybe I thought you said Monza but even then, the two are the same style...

Looks like you have a lot of goodies to go on the wagon. What's the story on that Mallory distributor?

Ha-ha on the ANZA, I saw it in your thread and was like wait a min... Didnt I... Yes I did... I'm just pointing out (more to myself) how good my memory can be
Even if it is just this once in 32 years

B20 mallroy dizzy is the bees knees .... So they say... Mallroy got bought out by MSD.. The Mallroy b20 dizzies are NLA (since b20 owners were cheap badstards not too long ago) and now people are asking 4-500 for themzzz
So basically a MSD dizzy

Paging Dr hiperfauto or any other respected member of "get off my pushrod club" fossil for the history lesson

They were pretty much the only performance distributor you could get along with the dual point back in the day. The advance curve is adjustable by changing springs and limiting total advance. The Unilite ignition module is vulnerable to voltage spikes as well as the chopper wheel wearing into the module causing it to fail. A filter is available to protect the module.

I wasn't aware they weren't making them anymore. Probably because of too much competition from 123 ignition. For about the same price, $400 - $450, you can get a brand new fully electronic programmable distributor.

There's one on ebay for less than $400 right now.

This is super rad! That's quite the collection of parts you're assembling, I'm Jelly. Those Hayashi's are going to look so good on there.

Thanks, to me thats part of the fun.. the chase

Brother decided to ditch the E30 recaros that I put in this Dakota last year? He kept catching his balls on the them when "in-n-out." Now they are going into this thing!
Dont know if I'll recover them in gray or black. Door panels that I have are white. Now that I think about it I will go with black since they will be easier to resell if I decide to ditch them too

welp this project got on the back burner but I got another 69 145
160k auto white interior

tags are from 1984

The white 145 will be a big donor to this car. I havent worked on the white one because the back is so messed up. There are so many panels coming into one big structure back there and it would requite a surgeon to do it right....





Luke said that Charleston Green from Rust-Oleum is the perfect match for this green so I ordered a case for $28 from home chepo


dirt etc from years of not being cleaned
with Ken's favorite carbs. PO said car starts but it's hard to. everything moves freely on the carbs
I have the air filter box also


Both hood and tailgate are rusted through along with passenger butt cheek (it had rags left inside of it)
That's the only rust on the car - I will be replacing the hood and tailgate first to get rid of my spares





engine bay cleaned up


I want to keep the white interior stock. The white 69 has a white interior also so I should be able to piece something decent
everything will be cleaned.





Tailgate hinge broke on me the first time I tried to close it

I have that white interior on my 69. It was professionally cleaned when I first got it, didn't make much of a dent. Gonna have to dye it if I want to keep them seats, otherwise I'm going to a 700 series set of seats.

sell me the skins then

Pressure washer cleans it all up. Trick is not to get too close or you will rip your upholstery apart

before (this one is from my parts car, way more dirty then then one on the green car)


keep spraying until you see no more dirt coming out and then spray even more


after (needs to dry - seats take DAYS to dry even in the summer)

looks like mocha coming out of the carpet.
Just wet sand it with 400 and primer if you want and paint away.

That after pic kinda looks worse than the before.

If I end up replacing the interior we'll see if I remember this post! If so, I'll let you know.

No, I don't want the grill or any other parts.
If you can't use any other hatch, then so be it. I only brought it up because I thought I saw you towing home another 145 and hoped you could use that hatch. No big deal.
