Front windsheild is in. But found the rear window has a electric defroster grid....

Wow, I didn't think that 71 had an electric rear defogger. Most used the fan type of defogger. I just checked my interchange book. Back glass is the same from 70 to 76. However first year of the electric defogger was 1973. Thinking the rear glass was changed at some time.

I bought that car as a basket case. I never check the window glass as they were all warped in carboard.

My car as the rear fan defrost so... looking for a rear glass....

Before you look for a glass, better check if your rear fan works...oh that's right the car will not see snow anyway and you are going for the stock look. Are you leaving the 440 sign on the stripe?

Even If you use the 73 glass, in order to hook up the electric defrost, you will have to get the proper switch and relays. I to would look for the right glass.
I bought myself what I like to call an wrecking yard bible. It's one of those large Hollander Interchange books, that the auto wreckers used long before computers. I think it's one of the best things I've bought. The book has been a great help to me and the classic cars I've had over the last few years.

You seem to be fairly lucky, when it comes to finding parts locally to you.
Hell it's going on 3 months now and I, can't find door glasses for mine.

Lots of contact.

You are right, the Hollander exchange book is a "bible/ for old car lovers.

I laugh out loud EVERY time I see that ad.....and it's been posted for a long time...He'd be lucky to get $500 for that carb in my opinion.

Install firewall insulation. Had to remove the heater box



Install new leaf springs. +1" arch. Should settle a bit lower. The front end should be higher, about 1"
