Tim,

Sorry to hear about your car.

I have one of those covers left over from the 51 Commander that I sold years ago. I've attached some photos, as I recall there was something slightly different than the one on my car and I think it was the height of the pipe that connects to the carb. I don't remember if it was shorter or longer, but could probably be made to work.

Anyway, if this is something you can use, you can have it for the cost of shipping.

Shorewood is a suburb of Chicago. Part was in the back of my SUV along with my gym bag. I was going to drop it off that day to be powder coated

Rejoicing with you on your car recovery.:!: But, being curious, did the cops catch the thief(s)? Were the keys in the car, or did they "bust" the ignition switch? Did they use your car for a robbery get away, or just wanted a ride & then abandoned it?:confused:

Or...is it such a crappy old dirty "daily" driver full of junk that they could only take it so much and decided to abandon it and steal something decent???;)

I carelessly left my car unlocked with the keys under the mat in my driveway. Word is gangs in Chicago are dropping off members in the suburbs with instructions to steal a car and drop off in the city as part of initiation into the gang.
