Thank you! I'm definitely not schooled enough to know all the details of 77 vs 78...The vin plate says Dec. 78 and it has factory disks up front which I've heard is a defining factor of the 78's but that could be totally wrong. But yeah its been great to this point. What I've done so far has been to hopefully preserve the decent condition of the engine. She smokes a little but nothing outrageous. I'm still scratching my head a little as it seems that I can smell raw fuel in the oil even after replacing fuel pump, carb etc. I know these older engines can seep gas through the rings so I've been making sure not to take short trips (bummer I know I have no choice but to go on long drives!). Next I'm going to do the typical tune up items, check the timing, change plugs, wires etc. I don't expect to find much there since she drives incredibly well. With new tires, recently rebuilt dif, trans, transfer its pretty much just cleaning up and verifying that everything stays working properly. Theres a few electrical gremlins so I bought a new fuse box and I'm going to replace old connections and transfer over to hopefully root that out. At some point I'll take the top off but there's really no rush! Any suggestions or advice are welcome. Cheers!Sweet rig! Great to see more mustard on the road. 12/78 eh? Almost (with the bezel, fuel door, drip rails not going to the running boards, etc..) that it might be a 12/77? Which would make it a 78 model year? Just curious - as I was looking for a mustard 12/77 for the better part of 2 years, (fav color, birthday). I settled on an 01/78. Looks fantastic - something you can just get in and enjoy.
