I picked up a 1967 F17 in March. It was not running/driving when I bought it and interior was in mostly original, but rough shape. It's now running after carb rebuild, new fuel pump, fuel lines, tune-up, and ignition wiring, but I'm waiting on new fuel tanks as the old tanks were not salvageable.

I've also started to accumulate and refinish interior and exterior pieces and components. I'll start my entry with 4 original hubcaps I found and restored. Before and after pictures posted below, and more pictures to come of the F17.

Thanks. I was surprised myself to see what was under that mess.

Funny to see this post here. Because, I bought it from Derek!


Happy to say that she's still running :)
