That right side gauge with fuel level, voltage level, oil temp and oil pressure is very Porsche like!

Surprised your dog didn't kill the mice. We always had dachshunds growing up. All were excellent mousers (and mole killers). The smartest we had was Fritz. If there was a mouse in the house we would just point where it was last seen and say, "Mouse!". I don't remember any escaping and the kills were very clean.

Changed out the fuel pump and rod/spring on my 64 Monza. Old one was leaking (even after tightening screw) and wasn't really seated right (you could push it down when the car was running and physically see it jump). New one doesn't move at all and no leaks! Only took about 20-25 minutes and that was doing other stuff at the same time.

Thank you, Mel. I think what I am missing looks something like this picture I found on the web. It's the two doors/flaps (one on each side) that fit at floor level for the back seat passengers.

Hi, Need a pair of heater outlet doors (the ones that come out under the back seat). Just replaced the carpet (bought the car w/o carpet) and discovered the originals are missing. Thank you, Bill needpart

The car this would be going on is a 65 Corsa with a stock suspension. What offset would that require?

That's a lot less than I expected! That price range would fit my budget. Do they have the particulars or do you have to specify offsets and such? What size tires are you running? Any clearance issues?

I would probably use a minilite copy. I’m not committed to any tire size. I prefer a 15 or 16 inch wheel. A proper fitting (and looking) rim will make my tire choice...not the other way around

I've read multiple threads on aftermarket wheels and it seems like there is a plethora of options. Unfortunately, there is seemingly an equally large number of offsets that will work. While I like Chevy Rally wheels, I've always been a fan of the minilite. My driving style is normal cruising. I'm not a racer, autocrosser, trackie, etc. I'm looking for a wheel size (other th

Doing some research and I see that Clarks quit making these at some point. If you needed to repair that are, what are your remaining options...buy a donor car part or custom fab your own? It seems to me a lot of cars have issues in that area. I'm surprised there isn't more demand for that panel.

I did check the hinge posts today with a hammer and an ice pick. Believe it or not, other than a very small spot (less than half the size of a pencil eraser) on each side up near the top hinge the posts were solid. I'm just going to store this one for now. If prices increase then maybe it will be worth restoring. If not, it will be a great parts car.

The car was definitely originally white with a red interior. It has the factory rear antenna hole. Front windshield appears to be original and tinted. I don't think the side glass is tinted.

But, there is just something about scrapping a car that could be saved that bothers me. It wasn't too long ago that rusty Porsche 356's, 914's and 911's were parted out. Now, unless they are totally destroyed people save them.

Haven't found the trim tag tag. But, it may be buried in there somewhere
