Welcome to the forum. That was a neat story, glad you perservered.  So what are your plans for the car, and what part of the country are you from?

Hi guys-

I am new to the forum and new to 57's. I found my custom 300 sitting next to an abandoned house on a small farm 10 years ago. When I saw it I new I had to have it, I don't think I slept that night due to the anticipation of speaking with the owner the next day. My excitement was quickly extinguished after speaking with the owner for a few moments. He told me how that was his fathers car and how he was going to fix it up "one of these days". The plates looked brand new and read 1974. He then went on to tell me that over 100 guys had stopped by over the years trying to buy it. Every year for 10 years I visited this guy usually in the spring and then again in the fall slowly gaining ground. He was really proud of this car and had only been allowed to drive it a handful of times when his father owned it. I looked up the cars sticker price new in 57'. His father had paid $2205 for the car new on the lot. I went to the bank, pulled out $2205, drove to his house and gave him the envelope. I told him this is the exact amount your father paid for your car new. He thought it over.  That night I had the 57' in my driveway and now it's time to bring her back to life. I am looking forward to hearing from you guys and hopefully gathering some wisdom along the way.

A lot of cars are being sold because of owners passing and the family sells out.
Also some folks are funding their retirement by selling off their collections. (interest rates are ruining retirees income).

Some are buying as a place to invest as collector cars hold their values and the guvment has
ruined all other investments.

Go to Dallas Mustang parts and put speedometer gear in the search box, they have a good selection most of the early mustangs used the C4 trans.

Hi:  The radio in my '57 wagon is complete except for the bottom cover, which has gone missing.  If you have one for sale, please let me know.  Thank you!  Ron

Really interesting article, Lynn. Thanks for finding and posting that. Mine is from tanks inc, as was the remote one in the article, but mine is not a remote. I'll have to do some more research and get back. Unless I misconstrued something somewhere, My fuel pump mounting plate had a tapped hole for the vent tip-over valve. So makes me wonder what's up with that and how that differs from a remote valve. I mean in how many applications are the fuel pump mounting plates  going to be higher than the filler neck??? none I would think.

Rich, I know nothing about roll-over vents. A quick search online I found an article that says they must be mounted higher than the highest point in the tank, incuding the filler neck????
