  • Business coupe update

    The 47 business coupe Sal has been working on has been interesting. It was a non runner when Sal got, but once he got spark to her, and replaced the fuel fouled plugs it fired right up. Sal put it in gear, but no movement. Sal found the speedo spinning, and so was the drive shaft.Finally, some good news, the axle is spinning in the drum, might be just a missing key. Funny, the reason we find for "drivers" being parked.

          I pulled the drum off the rear axle and found nothing more than a missing key. I'll pick one up tomorrow and drive the little beast across the pasture a couple times to see what else happens or doesn't happen. So far it purrs like a sewing machine and appears to go in gear easily. I can't wait to drive it.

                A two-tone bc! I like it!

                I keep 1/4" key stock in the screwdriver drawer. I like to replace them every few times I pull the rear drums and the CASO in me prefers to make my own.

                      Cute little vixen, hope she goes to a good home. Sal also did a nice job of bringing out the best in her.

                          You East Coast and MidWest guys may really want to look this one over. Although its not a daily driver without some effort... this car is as solid an example of a Biz Coupe you may ever find. The only rust I found on the car are the bubbles on the lip of the trunk, and even those are minor. I ran a refrigerator magnet over the usual Stude spots as well as the rockers, doors, fenders and found no obvious bondo. The floors are solid, as is the trunk. Its also one of the straightest bodies I've seen of this era.
