Looking for a Choke knob for Series III GTE

The one that came in my car looked like it was from the Bap-Geon catalogue; ivory colored bakelite... I don't plan on using the choke, but it is a part of the car that is obviously missing. Do any of you have a spare or an idea of who might have one?

250 Tool Kit

I was trying to send photos and stamping information to Andrew, but someone suggested that you guys might also want to see them. Almost all of the tools came with the car when I bought it in 2000. They have been cleaned up, but I believe them to be original. I purchased the Hub Puller on eBay and th...

Re: 250 GTE Parts Catalogue thread

Andrew - I am prepared to send way too much information on Tools. Do you have a dropbox I can use?

Re: 250 GTE Parts Catalogue thread

Andrew - I have the original tool kit that came with my GTE and have photos of each tool if that will be of help. I will take a look and see what numbers I can find.

I received my copy of the English Manual yesterday and it is terrific! Excellent color and photographic reproduction. I highly recommend getting one.

Cleaning Spoked Wheels - Lend me your Pro Tips!

I spent a lot of time cleaning my wheels yesterday and have the bruised knuckles to prove it! In the end, I rate the result OK. What have you guys done to make this more efficient, better and hopefully less painful.... And as long as we are on the topic, my rear wheels were a bit dirty, but the fron...

Re: TV Car Restorations and Makeovers

So which shows are worth watching? I gave up after watching cars being restored in "24 hours" and the cheap work they did to make it so. I always wondered what the buyers at auction thought after they bought a car and then saw the work done on Chasing Classic Cars to get it there. So far, Tom's vide...

Re: kick plates

I remember going to Danchuck to ask if we could get those panels before they were cut for Chevy's. I talked to couple of salesmen to no avail, then called a manager or two with no further luck. About a week later I got a call from Mr. Danchuck saying he had heard about me at a sales meeting and wond...

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

Great. Newco has it for considerably more than other retailers seem to have and they gave it a warning to not be used with fuel! I think I will shop around.
