The rims and tires are what came on the car when we bought it, the back are 255/60/15 and the front are 215/70/14. I’m not planning on using these wheels, I want to go 17” minimum but keep a similar staggered look. I really liked the stance the car had when we got it, may bring it down an inch not sure yet.what size tire are you running on the rears?
I was leaning towards EB-5 as well but have a hard time with colours, thanks for the other info! I haven’t seen any evidence of a luggage rack but I think the lid has been replaced (brown paint). Not sure about a vinyl top yet and I don’t see evidence of a mirror, the motor and tranny are stored away for now but I remember determining the motor was a 340 and had X heads on it. Gonna have to look into ac, it’s gonna get it anyway.Looks like EB-5 blue to me. Without the tag and the build sheet all you've got are clues. If it is a 318 with the original hump it was probably a 318 3 spd. I'll try to get a picture that will help later. The radiator support will be wider if it had air. The underside of the trunk will be different if it had a luggage rack. The dash will have clues about AC and radio options if it was not altered or replaced. The rims are not original - they are part of the A66 340 performance package most likely. The rearend is probably a 3.23 open unless it too was altered or replaced. Spin one tire and if he other one goes the same way it is posi. If it is a 3.55 gear there will/should be a tag on the pumpkin - otherwise you'll have to do the math on revolutions. If the leaf springs were replaced the number of leaves will be greater than a 318 car. Numbers on the block and gear box will tell you from where it came. There may be evidence of a vinyl top but that's easy to erase. If it had a RHS mirror you can see the holes on the inside - probably did not. Fun car. Good luck!
well shucks if that's the case depending on where you're at I would be very interested in the rearsThe rims and tires are what came on the car when we bought it, the back are 255/60/15 and the front are 215/70/14.

Your a little early! The wheels and all the other parts that I don’t use will be available but unfortunately not at this time, sorry! I plan on hanging on to what comes off the car until I have replacements / upgrades to put back on just in case I have to move it for some reason.well shucks if that's the case depending on where you're at I would be very interested in the rears
Sounds like you are going to do significant improvements to the car, so I think the fender tag and build sheets add no value to your car. They are interesting at best. I have attached a picture of my 71 BHG, long past stock. RodView attachment 66356 Now that it’s home and I’ve had a better look at things, it appears there has been some minor collision repairs (poorly done) nothing that some new parts won’t fix. My vin decoding tells me it was a 318 car unfortunately I don’t have a fender tag (poorly done repairs) and I didn’t find any build sheets anywhere. My son is pretty interested in what’s going on with the car, he’s 5 so maybe the start of another car guy!
I agree it won’t add any value, but I would have liked to see it regardless. I like to know the backstory of things, when the ownership was switched we found I was the 4th registered owner of a car that’s been registered in a 150km radius since it was purchased in 1970.
