you Folks notice everything ---- earlier on it was the choke knob in the +2!! PS: first Thing i did in 81, when i bought the car (in racing drag!!) was getting the Chassis coated: 1. "bath" extra hot to remove the brown/red paint and thereafter 2. bath: the actual zink. the Chassis was as new (NO CORROSION) and never bent PLUS the car a l w a y s had ist own little barn!! sandy

It is an early Type 36. The well known FHC press demonstrator LNK 120C was invoiced three days before Sandy's car. Yet Unit 4937 was invoiced 11 days after Sandy's.
