History Bought in Sante Fe, NM 2003 as rust free original condition. Spent lots of time and fun bringing back to better than original condition but looks the same. Call him Billy for a Billy Goat cause they both can go many of the same places.

Never seen snow even though moved to Maryland in 2006. Currently in VA. Not much more than a sprinkle of rain either as garage kept since leaving NM.

Interior

About as original as can make. Took many years to get the same parts even the original 2 speed heater motor switch.

Wheel and Tire
Military tires and steel rims as original. Still have 2 of the original rims with 2 new spares on them.

Under the Hood

Rebuilt original block with Turner head. Spent $7k with Rover Ranch in NM for full engine redo. Have to have 115 hp or so. 55 mph steady anywhere anytime.

Suspension

Rocky Mountain parabolic springs and all poly bushings. Getting the old bushings out was fun?

Other
Too beautiful to paint like others. Love the RL look and Billy's personallity.
Fairly new Fairey Overdrive. Old one sang too much. Now quiet finally.
