There hasn't been much activity on this. I would like to see it move along, but it takes a very motivated team of enthusiasts to move this along.

I would be keen to contribute in any way I can but I believe we need someone to drive it and/or steer it.

Anyone willing to put their hand up?

I don't understand the work that is needed.

Just taking pics of original parts?

It definitely does take a very motivated team, I agree. I too would like to see this move along. Unfortunately from my end it’s been difficult to. I just started a new job recently and I’ve been laser focused on that. If anyone wants to drive, I’d be happy to provide info as we go along.

After installing new A.C.C. carpet, I found another build sheet stapled to the bottom of the center arm rest in the rear seat back. Thankfully, it matched up with the other 2 I'd found previously. 8/15/69 build (a Friday), basically a line build, nothing special, sent to Buffalo. :)

Any new progress on an authenticity manual for the Mark III? I have a Mark III in the works and while the car is very nice, I want to take it to the next level. Doesn't seem like much has been happening here with the manual and LCOC does not offer one yet. I'd be willing to contribute once the car gets here.
