    Great thread. Thanks. I think the spacer on the plug is an anti-fouler. I had one on the 283 that was in my coupe. Snowman

    Did you determine the origin of the shifter that came on the car?

    I think those are bongo drums in the passenger side front corner of the trunk, and the wrenches are box end/open end combination.

    The red looking circles look like reflectors they used to sell that you put out on the road if you broke down

    The color photo shows how wrong I was with my bongo guess. The white box looks like a first aid kit. I remember that some show cars had a red vinyl pouch containing road flares. The light blue thing appears to be a hydraulic floor jack, and there are a couple of wooden handled screwdrivers below the wrenches. I have no idea what the gray thing between the wrenches and the reflectors is.

  20. That gray thing is a second reflector. It's folded up the way they store, the other one is flipped up like it would be when in use.

    Probably not of great importance, but if I had to guess based on the vehicles in these pictures and the type of photo paper these are from the late '70s to mid '80s not 1995. Also the paint looks to be gloss black and not primer.

    Regardless, @Austinrod I love your penchant for getting every last detail correct. The car looks fantastic!

    You might be correct
    I haven’t found anything on the car in 1976 to 1994
    This might be from the eighties maybe
