That Acapulco Blue 68.5 Stang pic was sent to me by Rusty Hall. They restored it and took it to the 50th CJ Reunion at Norwalk and won first place. The only thing different is they used the white stripe instead of the original gold one. I know that because my Dad bought this car new from Sanders Ford in Houston. I used to ride the hump and shift the 4-Speed when Dad was driving.....

Sure opens a can of worms when you replace the hinges, but I had to do it.

Yes it was rusty under there.....I figured it was especially when some of the bolt heads twisted right off...lol. So of course I had to clean everything up and sprayed inside the box with a wand every way I could. I had initially bought the pins and bushings but said hell with it and ordered new hinges.
