Nice to see those factors disc rivets still in place! My 67 showing 49K miles also had them when I bought it in 2004.

very nice, love white midyears but my first was marina blue and current 67 BB is maroon as I would have bought new if I could have. In 85 I started body off cbut did with friends lifting body off, holding as I removed shims and then rolled frame into garage and they played body in garage, put back on same way with same people couple years later. Big Big Big thanks to all those guys.

Nice job! I was in Indy last week and took a picture of another 67 BB. Check this out. Pretty cool. The second vin was less than 500 cars later.

You guys don't mess around! Your frame looks great! That is one solid car. I'm jealous!! Most Rochester cars have rust issues. Maybe it moved out of town at an early age. Either way, it was taken care of very well and is very well preserved. Nice project!
