    Change to tilt column

    I plan to replace my fixed steering column on my 68 Wildcat to a tilt column. Easy stuff, but the signal flasher is broken on the tilt one. Can I swap the signal flasher assy from my non tilt to tilt? Are they the same part number? Thanks, Gary (aka 68 Wildcat)

    Sending unit

    My 68 Wildcat is well on the way to passing it's certification for plates. Only the fuel tank and trunk welding repair is left to do. I need to get the fuel tank rebuilt and it would be foolish to not tackle the sending unit and seal at the same time in my opinion. I have been looking for a...

I see no signs that it was a vinyl top car... no glue or anything caught under the window chrome etc. I think it may have always been painted that way, but I have no way of knowing. It clearly has the belt chrome like a vinyl...
