1971 coupe

My recent purchase ! Brought in from America by another NZ 'er and painted and complied to our regulations an then sold to me for $30,000 nz.
So far I have put rear seatbelts in so we can put the 2yr an 4yr old grandchildren in safely and clocked up a couple of thousand km's.
Still need to fix fuel sender/gauge and get the a/c an heater/demister working. Also replace the ripped headliner an change all the locks/ign to the same key.

very nice car, any idea what manufacturer for the wheels?
strange it didnt have rear belts, should have had 3 sets from the factory back in 71.
not sure what issue you are having with the fuel gauge but if it is stuck on full, check the ground connection for the fuel sender.
Lots of luck with the car.

Bolt holes were there for seatbelts but belts were missing. It was an easy fix.
Fuel sender is stuck on full and it has had a new fuel tank fitted so that will be be my first place to check - thanks
Wheels are Coys and are quite badly anodized around the spoke/hub area so will look at trying to revive them with something
