1966 Corsa, cleanest 41 year old ashtray I've ever seen!
The worst inflicted damage found so far is this hatchet job access for past fuel tank/line work. I will weld that up!! Factory applied sound deadener or "undercoating" applied under here.
Driver's side suspension shows years & miles of use.
This car was meant to be on the road!!
A couple of hours of intense cleaning is rewarded.
I've uncovered this code cast into the quick steering arms. They have the same amount of crud as the rest of the suspension, indicating that they are original parts.
This yellow swab of paint is on the Saginaw quick steering box. What does it mean? Perhaps it denotes it as a special part? The box & arms are RPO N44
