I found a "nice" old cub earlier this summer. 1 owner, probably mostly original. 

 

The build date is dec 1964 purchased locally new and I'm only a few miles away. 

 

After I got it home, I got it running old Cubs never die. Ran and drove decent enough. A bit of play in the steering but solid everywhere else. 

 

I'm going for a full tear down and rebuild.  I have tons of pictures if you guys are interested. I will just leave a picture of the engine for now as a teaser. And an old engine picture.

Looking really good but I think I would prefer the T-Bird in the background.

That's another 1 owner barn find. It needs a full restoration as well. It definitely will get one at some point.

Couldn't find anything wrong with the clutch, yet it still had some play in it. Found out it was this part here. Along with a very worn out bolt which was causing play.

It's good as new now. 20190917_170912.jpg

I like to keep stuff as original as possible. Instead of replacing the dash grommet I restored it. Maybe I'm being cheap. Nothing like a 55 year old part that looks better than it did new.

May not be much, but the little details make or break a restoration. Even if I'm the only one who notices.

I'm the same way. And believe me someone will notice. And that would be enough to make me wish I'd had done it different...
