Did you restore her or just touch her up here and there? It's a beauty.Big smile
 
Hi Rusty,
I restored my 320 about 15 years ago, so its pretty much an "older" restoration now.  I was able to save the original paint pretty well, but to do so I have to live with a few bumps and scratchs from the past 45 years.  I guess I like it better that way than re-painting it.  As they say, you can always re-paint it, but its only original once!
 
It was a super low mileage truck, but sat in a back yard not running for years.  I didn't have a digital camera back then, so these pictures arn't very good, just scans of photos.  I just scanned these tonight, so they have never been seen on the net ..ha ha. LOL.  1st time right here!! LOL
 
This is what it looked like when I towed it home.  Ughhh.....
 
Thanks for asking............., Dale - L320

Bungee cord & JDM LOL!! ClapBig smile  Yep, I still have it.  I really need to fix it one of these days.  I would like to find a battery hold down that goes length wise across the battery.
