Due to an accident, I wasn't able to drive my Model A Delivery anymore, so, up for sale it went one here and sold. I was gutted!
My ideal would have been to buy a four seater, something with 350 Chevy power, i'd always wanted a 67 Camaro, and always wanted to own a piece of our history, So when a car that I had posters on my wall of as a spotty kid turned up for sale, that fulfilled every whim i had, it really was a no brainer. It ticked every box, there was never any question of it not coming home with me.
I'll post some of the motor and interior asap, plans for the future, Blower to get it back to how it was when Mick had it, it's basically how it was when he brought it out first of all before it was blown. Im just going to drive it, enjoy it and maintain it just as it is, and get it fully back to a top show car, not that its not show worthy now, just a bit of paint and laquer to repair, apart from that to say the paint was put on in 74, 38 years ago. its fantastic and a credit to Mick's skills's!!
I just love it, i can't see it going anywhere anytime soon, ive got my ideal car, really can't see anything else i could want.
Ive a lot of history, all the mag features and books that she's been in, sales brochure and all the trophies Mick won in the day, and they will stay with the car, its now almost the full package back together. Ive got the Blower bonet, original fromt slots and Grabbers, just need to get hold of some side pipes closer to the original ones, I believe they were patriot?
If anyone has any further info on the car or anything they want to add please contact me, im a serious anorak with this car and want everything its ever had or been printerd in fully back together, I dindn't know Mick Cooke, but I do think having everything together again for people to see would be a fitting tribute to a talented man that no one has a bad word about.
Hope you like the pics.
A few interior and engine shots as promised, the paint and inner wing murals are perfect, its the moon and the clouds reflecting in the lake if you can make it out, with the chrome wish bone at the bottom.
The chrome under the hood has stood up really well also, a bit of replating to do but again for 38 years its brilliant.
If you look carefully, you can see the 1970's 8 Track that Mick put in at the time, its still in and thats where it'll stay, another part of its history. The upholstery looks remarkably good aswell, needing nothing really.
Thats all for now, ill update with a few more pictures later.
Hope you like them.
