I'm starting a new thread to document all of the stuff for my 72 250ci 3sp toploader vert.
Being an "L" code, he's been named "Elroy".

Bought the car this past summer.
New 14" Cooper Cobras, installed valve stem seals, Pertronix I

Pretty solid overall, I'm currently in process of stripping down to bare metal to see what lies below.

Still need steering wheel, fan guard, rear seat boot retainer.
Plan to add header & dual exhaust & carb, idiot light tach upgrade. Needs center console radio bezel, clock cleaning.

It's cleaning up nicely!

RockAuto has the molded upper hoses in stock now.

I ordered one off of Amazon. Should be in tomorrow. I will never, ever use one of those non-molded hoses again.

Well, that's a mess! Is that the spring wire that's all rusted/rotted? I knew you were looking for a molded hose a while back. Glad you were able to find one.

Yep, spring wire. I flushed out the radiator pretty good, still need to do the rest of the system.
