Good Day all!

I am trying to locate my old buggy, from my "youth."

I acquired it in approximately 1980 and we parted ways in 1992 or so.
It used to be in Whitby, Ontario, Canada but god only knows where she might be now.
I disassembled it at least 3 times and did a lot of body mods as well.
If anyone has seen it; I would love to know where and when.

Just curious is all.

Thanks!

Mike P

Yes, 1968 Coronet.

I modified them slightly.
They had an extra bulb in the red section as the signal light. The brake lights were solid on both sides and the extra bulb made it brighter with the signal on... ok at night but useless in the day.
I deleted the extra bulb and took the signal wire to the clear section to act as the signal indicator. I then put an amber bulb in there.
I took the "reverse light" wire and ran it down to the big tractor lamp on the rear engine mount, tied in nice and tight with the lead for the lighted plate light.
