When you were restoring your sprint what reference material did you refer to in order to get the finishes/colors correct? Posted a pic of my engine bay - working on removing some dried up unddercoating crud on the engine firewall and will repaint in the original color. Thank you for taking the time to share your advice.
At that show, there was an unrestored 66 Sprint with 6000 miles on it that I used as an additioinal reference.
Sorry to hijack, but my '66 has that same chrome air cleaner. I've always wondered if it was a Sprint. It's a 200ci with a C4, coupe with a vinyl roof. Are there any other ways to identify a Sprint?
We may have a winner then...I had the wire covers w/spinners (stored now), car has a console, no rear quarter panel ornament, and did have a c-stripe under the paint.
Are they particularly rare or valuable?
Nah, that's a repro oil cap. I put that on years ago to match the air cleaner. The engine isn't original either, though the carb and air cleaner are.Need to see pics of your chrome oil cap... This has really been an issue lately.. For 10 years, I have seen nothing but Original painted black oil caps which is fully correct, and within 1 week, I have found two cars with "supposed" chrome oil caps. Please take a close-up pic of the top of your chrome oil cap please, and post it here.
Here is a pic of mine...trying to decode it:My Metuchen Sprint has a scheduled build date of 10E, too! 6T08T258453
Buck Tag has an actual build date of F21 (June 21st).
Preliminary data indicates that there were a higher percentage of white Sprints produced than the percentage of 1966 Mustangs in general.
