Hello Phil,
On the Brown Banner at the top of this page, there is a hyper link called "Documents". If you click on that, you have access to the Free Documents microfilm of 77 foot Elco Drawings. Just follow the directions on the page and Dick the webmaster will help you if you cant figure it out.

You're welcome Phil! Dick does excellent work, he's been doing it for a loooong time and it shows.

I hope bashing up a perfectly restored classic Mustang isn't on your bucket list Dick.

Jeff . . . .

It wouldn’t be a Mustang but a 1974 Corvette - in remembrance of the ’70s and ’80s and my 74 Corvette cruising the beaches of the South Bay (the southern beach communities of the general Los Angeles area). But I have only been contemplating for only 5 or 6 years now, maybe soon I be able to make up my mind, or, maybe not, Hmmmmm . . . . Old Age is a Bitch!

I bought a '74 Vette new for $6,000.00 and sold it 11 years later (1985) for $6500.00. Even with it needing a new paint job really, really bad! I had already painted it twice, because fiberglass, paint, and southern California don’t mix well . . . . But, but, before I sold it I gave the body a good coat of WD-40, it worked miracles, very shiny and hiding all the spider paint cracks, well, until it evaporated. Even with all the faults, the buyer loved it . . . .

No, I don’t think I’ll be doing any big project, heck - I can’t even finish a darn PT boat drawing I originally started 25 years ago when I was a young man of nearly 50! All it takes nowadays is a simple shiny object flashing about to deflect my attention.

I’m sorry . . . what were we talking about?

Dick

Hey I had the same year Vette! It took only 3 years of after work blood sweat and tears until midnight, and my bank account, to get it decent. I did go overboard with the engine but it sure was fun:
