Every year I greet the Monacco snow birds at their annual flocking for Fire Fight Products but I wanted to go over a few things…….I’ll be in the shop in the pm …I’m happy with my progress today. Got Bruce’s MacDaddy looking descent.
For Bruce, getting a good bite on your in tact plastic dash…..Mac,s covered fiberglass dash fit nice and tight. Already prewired, now it was making it all fit……Original wiper control cable relocated, original dash AC vacuum system checked out and extended…..Color coded Molex connectors and service loops connectednow screwing it all in place….next is the A/V system and last upper panelWe’ve pulled the side panels for repair and our retexture process. Having the seats out helps that process and mine finishing out the MacDaddy dashThe first test…….dash illumination and parking light circuits workThrow down the mic……that’s what I’m saying…… Ok, ill get more out of it tomorrow
Hey just got my “Vintage RVing magazine today……if you don’t hit this rag, its worth being a member to get itit was a “2fer” today…..Harbour Freight coupon bomb AND the mag! Hey wild….I have the exact rare Revcon AND an even rarer #24 production Cortez at the shop right now. These classics are in our Q……read about them then follow us as we bring both back to the road! A great interest topic!Yeah, we’ve got both of those and I think they are the same color!
Tomorrow will be Ralph, my Suzuki and me! Spreading the word it’s not good to catch on fire……see ya later……..
Got into the shop early to pack for the fare safety talk and had a few to put up these pics. We really had not shown much on these projects ….I mean there’s just so much going on but this 1972 Revcon has to be about the nices example of this rare RVssame paint scene as the pic above of the magazine cover. Yes, it’s sporting our front wheel drive 455 Olds drivetrain, Heck…..I think we could stuff a blower under the floor!You KNOW it’s getting FiTech fuel injection! The exterior came to us finished…..must be a pretty popular paint scheme for these thingsMa.c. McNeal is biting at the bit to build a new dash for it……Man, that’s. “Kojac” dash for sure!and the AC and DC power panels are in the trunk!He.g., don’t stand in the rain in a puddle doing any wiring in THIS beast!
Anyway it’s a really cool looking, historic and rare machine, probably one of the nicest looking Recon “4 wheelers” out there!
And hanging in there all these decades, this 1962 Clark Cortez is powered by a Molar slant 6 industrial motor somehow grafted to a manual, 4 speed Clark fork lift transmission…..again front wheel drivein rough condition and having a steel body the exterior refinishing will be……….fun! This coach is a first year reportedly #24 off the assembly line…..Wow, another historic machine waiting in our Q for its chance at some lovin!
Yes, our Vintage RV ranks are growing as these barn find coaches show up wanting their chance to wear out tire rubber again. I’m honored their owners have brought their bundles of joy to us.
Ok, have a couple hour drive right through the morning Disney traffic….pray for me and my Suzuki Ralph…….. He’s gulping a little more crude than he used to, Valvoline VR1 is trying to keep it together…..one more run, come one ole Ralphyboy!
See you again, have a great day………
