1973 Duster 225 questions
I am restoring a low mileage barn find, complete car, have repaired all rust damage, replaced bad rubber, primed and is ready for paint. .Have purchased period correct paint, am changing the color. All original, seats, perfect, interior parts, required some repair, and were awful colors, so have been repaired and primed. New hoses, brakes, bushings bearings, ball joints. Wiring is perfect, all electrical parts all original, and fine. The 225, has been gone over and is fine, the Holly one barrel has been rebuilt, and has not been reinstalled.
I have put to much into it, to mess up on details, so I have a few questions.
1. The car came with only a drivers side mirror, it isn’t in perfect condition, is small and hard to see out of, I have a set of Chrysler New Yorker mirrors, period correct , use them? Buy something that looks good? Buy reproduction, or another? What do you think?
2. Interior colors, does period correct matter? I want to go with flat black with some wood grain, what do you think?
3. I need a float and spring, to finish the one barrel, can buy a rebuilt, with warranty, for the same price, with core exchange, what do you think
