Hello again Pantera community….. it’s been a while! Nope… I didn’t fall off the earth… I‘ve been restoring a few of my daughter’s cars with her. Most notably a 1969 Boss 302 clone. Then, I built another GT40 … but now, finally pulled 05843 from the back of the barn. I’ve been concerned for years that the rust which was generally speaking minimal at the time of purchase (almost a decade ago) has continued to creep. For that reason, my focus for right now is “preservation”. And, as the current caretaker of 5843, I wanted to share and document the process.
Got my first positive surprise when I popped the trans off, and found a billet wheel and center force dual friction PP & clutch. 😎👍
