    body tag

    Your car did not have a vinyl top. The first 78 is for the lower body color and the second is for the upper color. Tom is correct that if it had a top it is usually shown with a letter. My 71 has a double code like yours code 19 19 =black upper and lower,car is a Baltimore built car.
  3. Hey Doug,

    Thanks for your interest!!  Yes the dash pad has (2) speakers, one in each corner.

    Dash Pad - $150

    Sport Mirror - $150

    Map Light - $50

    All items are in great shape, right off the car.  Let me know what you decide or if you need more info.

    Thanks!!
    Mike

    body tag

    It shows the roof being the same color as the body which for 1970 would be "Black Cherry". For a 71 it would be "Rosewood Metallic". Thomas is correct that a vinyl top would indicated by a letter. I have only seen body tags where the paint codes have double sets numbers for body colors rather than a single pair of numbers. I am NOT saying Thomas is wrong, clearly i have not seen every body tag out there. My factory two-tone painted car is coded 25 for Astro Blue and 10 for Classic White. rob

    Parting out my 72 Custom

    Doug, he did say the dash pad is a stereo. It was a factory AC car so it would have the two outboard speakers for the dash pad rob

    body tag

    I believe not. It shows the body and top are the same color. Vinyl top codes are usually a letter. A, B, C . Strange though, usually see the paint code only once. Maybe the car was ordered with the vinyl top trim only?

    does this mean I should not have a vinyl top?

    Parting out my 72 Custom

    Sorry to hear this Mike. Maybe you can find another Monte to fill the void. Is the dash pad for twin speakers up front? How much for it and the Painted Sport Mirror? How much for the map light mirror? Doug

    Very sad indeed. I just saw that car in June for the first time too after all these years in the club. Good to hear that dealing with Hagerty went well.

    FGMCC Website?????

    That is pretty much the reason I couldn't get on either Darren. It seems all related to the Website and not a Personal Computer error. Originally I thought it was at my end until further investigating it. On a good note, it did prompt me to go into my Files searching and I actually deleted Programs from my PC thinking any one of them may have caused it. Must have helped as the PC is operating much brisker than usual. Doug

    That is very disheartening news Mike. All the best on disposing of your Parts. Are you looking at replacing her? Might be worth hanging onto those parts if you are as they at least in part may come in handy depending on your needs. Doug

    Air Shock Problem

    Such deception Bob. Does it help you sleep at night? The "conversation"..... Report reply ripleydale 19 Started conversation: December 5 Hey Bob, have you not seen my message about the shocks? You strike me as a stand up guy, and at this point, the shocks you sold me are useless. I don't believe you meant to sell me defective product so I'm expecting a conversation about it. Help me understand. Quote Edit Report reply lastss 43 Replied: December 5 Their nos what’s wrong, this is first message I received. Bob Quote Report reply ripleydale 19 Replied: December 5 I sent you another note about a week ago on the old title "air shocks". The problem is they don't line up. There's a post on the site under SS454 where there are a few pictures. The stud at the bottom and the connection at the top need to line up with each other. On my shocks, they are out, one considerably, and the other less so, but still out enough it won't fit. Instructions say "don't twist". I can move them up and down no problem but they don't want to twist so I don't see how they'll ever fit. Check out the post and let me know. I can send better pictures. Thanks. Quote Edit Report reply lastss 43 Replied: December 5 I got no notice or saw post on website and I’m hardly ever on, delco said they would fit and I didn’t question that. You can turn the top mount in the in the rubber without issue maybe they were made wrong. Or send back and I’ll replace but they won’t be delco. Sorry Your having issues, delco often changes parts and say they interchange. Send back here’s my info Robert Lyman 4205 Mynatt ct Myrtle Beach, SC 29588 Quote Report reply ripleydale 19 Replied: December 5 The bushing at the top won't work, it needs to turn sideways. I can source Monroe's easy enough and Darren Bull has some he pulled from his SS. So I'm thinking since shipping is going to cost $ (I'm in Canada), I'll send them back, you can refund my money and we'll call it a day. How does that sound? Quote Edit Report reply lastss 43 Replied: December 5 Well you had them for a very long time and it’s not my fault. I have no use for them and don’t keep any sales info. I suggest you re sell them. Quote Report reply ripleydale 19 Replied: December 5 I found our post where you sold them. $125. How could I possibly sell them to someone else? They're screwed. I wouldn't do that to someone. I personally think you should just refund me the money and skip shipping them back because they are useless to anyone. Or maybe compromise somewhere in the middle since shipping isn't cheap, and as you say, it isn't your fault. Quote Edit Report reply lastss 43 Replied: December 5 sound like you screwed them up trying to twist them and I offered you a replacement set which you received and now you don’t want to even return them and expect me to refund you. No happening, if they didn’t fit it isn’t my fault and maybe they were boxed wrong. But now you screwed them up trying to twist them is why you want a refund and not even wanting to send them back because I’ll inspect them and see the damage. Now no replacements will be sent and no refund. Send back here’s my info Robert Lyman 4205 Mynatt ct Myrtle Beach, SC 29588 Quote Report reply ripleydale 19 Replied: December 5 I haven’t screwed them up. I tried to twist one to see if it was even remotely possible and it wasn’t. If they weren’t wrong from the box we wouldn’t be having this discussion. I have no issues sending them back. In fact I could hand deliver in January 2020. I will send them back and expect replacement (upon inspection) sent back where you pay for shipping back to Canada. Deal? Quote Edit Report reply lastss 43 Replied: December 5 Nope nothing, I offered replacements you turned me down to buy somebody else’s. You had them 2 yrs , you twisted them and damaged them. And no way I’ll pay shipping both ways, or wait till 2020 Quote Report reply ripleydale 19 Replied: December 5 Well I was thinking of only one way, back to Canada. I would have shipped them back to you. I didn't turn you down, I suggested an alternative that I thought would benefit both of us, since it seemed like you would have had to buy new shocks as a replacement. Shipping last time was $40 US plus I had fees at the border. Not sure what would happen going back the other way. I did not suggest that you purposely sold me defective shocks, but you're sure suggesting that I wrecked them. I'll write this up to an interesting life lesson, and if we do confirm our plans to Florida in 2020, I will see if you're interested in getting together. I suspect we have a lot in common even though this isn't going too well. I'll bring the shocks so you can see I didn't wreck them, not for any refund or replacement. I'll keep one and you can keep one and we can hang them on our garage walls. :o)

    Parting out my 72 Custom

    Mike, what are you thinking on the tilt column??
  21. As some of you may have already heard, I was a victim of “black ice” a few weeks ago while driving my 72 Monte Custom to the local diner on a Sunday morning. After weighing all of my options and doing a lot of crying it has now become apparent that my Monte cannot be saved without some great expense. I have decided to part the car out and am offering all of the parts here first before I look elsewhere for buyers. I have owned the car for about 20 years and have done a lot of work on it to make it like I wanted it. I am telling you all of this because there are lots of really nice parts on the car that I will be looking to sell. I have put together a list of some of the more interesting parts that are for sale but basically just about everything that a full car has is available for sale. Let me know if anyone is interested in what I have listed or maybe something that I did not think of and we can go from there. Please feel free to make “reasonable” offers on anything. I will not be insulted.

    Not having a great day today ...

    I just wanted to give a follow-up on my 72 Monte Custom "mishap". First off, my insurance company (Hagerty) was the nicest company you could ever have to deal with in a time like this. They were extremely understanding and polite through the entire process. I never had to do anything like this before and they were very patient with all of my dumb questions and helped me navigate through all of the steps. Thumbs up to Hagerty. In the end, my car was determined to be a total loss and I am now in the process of parting out all of the parts on the car. I will start another post in the "For Sale" section. Thanks for all of the advice I received from everyone and the kind words of encouragement. Mike

    Air Shock Problem

    Not true, I offered replacements and he said no and because the the shocks were screwed up and worth nothing, wanted a refund and Not return the shocks. The proof is in the messages. I will Never sell any more parts here. I Never had a problem on eBay.

    1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Custom

    Oops! Sorry about that! Well, auction closed with a Sold Price of $9300.00. If it's legit, someone scored what could be a nice price on a nice car. I queried the seller via eBAY messaging and they never bothered to reply. Seems awful suspicious to me. I was tempted, but again caution rules the day..................ps: couldn't reply until now because Website couldn't load. Doug
