@unimog There is a collector local to me that has been collecting 40 series parts for 40+ years. he has forgotten more then I will ever know about 40's. I was at his place looking for an oil gauge and asked if he had a front disc brake conversion for sale. To which he replied it might be my lucky day.
I wan to break out of the beige parade on the next CSC classic cruise
Back June he was really not doing good but haven't heard from him for a whileHow was this collector doing? Know him since the early nineties. Picked up a few 60 series parts from him a few months back and he was feeling too good.
What's wrong with the beige parade? It's kinda of grown on me over the years. View attachment 2433499
My early 68 started out Capri Blue. After putting it on it side in 1975 and replaced it with a beige 73 top in 1976. Early eighties added vent windows.

Later a friend repainted for me. Not the color I really wanted but was free.View attachment 2433504
This is how it sits and I mean sits today.View attachment 2433517
Thought about replacing all the later parts and going back to stock Capri Blue. Would hate to lose the rear vent windows. Plus beige would start to standardize the fleet color which fits AZ.
