Looks like it has a search tune (7 button) radio as well.

Sad to say the headliner does need to be done. I completely blitzed it on a picture. I would like to mention that it does run but needs to have the freeze plugs replaced. Father has them but no time.

Update... found my front and rear end pieces!... and I will get the one I already had for Mary. Costs a pretty penny though... ouch.

So I now have the full regal lancer trim set.

Paul can't believe some Swede hasn't snapped up your car, I mean wtf.

From what I know yours is the last on earth that is even possibly up for sale. Mary is keeping hers and the others are all bought up.

Wow!  Great walk-around by Charles Phoenix!  That is a beautiful car.  I like the metal fleck carpeting - nice touch!

It doesn't appear to be a heavily-optioned Regal.  It looks like it has an AACA show badge on the grille.

My guess is that this is the Ruffalo/Guyer Regal (see page 11) that I actually sat in as it rolled across the Barrett-Jackson block in Scottsday in 2008.

Note the backward shields on the fins!

Haven't posted an update on this car in a long time. It's been a long road and there's light at the end of the tunnel. I haven't even seen the car myself yet; just got this email from the body shop today. Will try to pick it up this weekend. Man am I eager. I may not sleep tonight.

More pictures from when I picked her up. Looks great; got her home without any problems and she's safely tucked away in my garage. I'm going to let the paint harden and then carefully put all the pretty stuff on. I'll post pictures of the progress.

My Mopar garage. The wall art fenders are the originals that were on the car. Some miscellaneous Fury parts. One of my other projects; a 62 Polara 500 with non-original 413 and 4 speed (413 on the hook). Not a Forward Look but a beautiful Exner design IMHO.

I am missing ONE piece of chrome on my RL. Any suggestions on what to do if I can’t get it. One of my Regal emblems is broken in half recommendations on fixing it. Also I am very nervous on who to have work on it. It needs trunk and a couple other rust areas done. Also who do you recommend for chrome work? Has anyone every dealt with Legendary Auto Interiors on having them copy the interior material?

Thanks for any input!

Mary,

that piece can be repaired by a good plating company, as for the interior, SMS are on with my seat covers at moment, I had to buy a set of patterns for them, give Doug a call he may do a deal seeing as he is already on with a set?

How correct is the pattern? Looking at their website right now. Which fabric did you go with and where did you get the correct pattern?

Mary,

Gary goers used to make up the covers, but because he is unwell ,no longer makes them, so I bought the patterns from him to send to SMS so they could make up the covers, the door panels SMS have done before for Gary, they have the material and are on with mine at the moment, I am missing the plastic rectangles that go on the seats, are you missing any, I could do with one to copy some,

Thanks Paul.

Plastic rectangles? I’m going to have to look at them. I bet they are there. The original seats were just covered up.

I was just re-reading your resto thread. Brought up some question. Is it necessary to do a body off frame restoration? How much of the parts were new vs original? I look at your and just think there is no way I can do that myself!

These are the plastic parts, my car came with wrong seats so I don't have any to even copy, ask a few Regal owners but no replies back?

Most of it is just cleaning and painting, only new parts are bushes, joints etc, everything else has either been rebuilt cleaned or painted, all the nuts bolts etc are all electroplated.
A lot easier to do over there I would have thought as saves on importing parts, all depends on how far you want to go on you're restoration, having a good body would make it easier to do a frame restoration, I never had my car running plus the engine was in bits, so I never knew how good anything was so it was rebuilt before going back together.

Paul,

Sorry for the one year lag in responding to your request for info on the seat buttons. Here are some pictures and a description that will help. I have a full set but some need recovering. The buttons are actually metal plates covered in white vinyl; folded, rolled over the edge and glued on. The plates measure 1-5/8" long by 5/8" wide. There are 2 pins, 1 inch apart that pierce the seat to keep the button from rotating. The pins look to be equal to a 6d finish nail that is swedged on the back and extend 7/16". The center has a cupped washer pierced by a loop that is folded over on the front. The front and back buttons are held to each other through the seat by a fabric strap. A clip one one end of the strap allows conection inside the seat by reaching up inside (the seat needs to be compressed to attach it). The front seat bottons are 5 inches apart. The single rear seat buttons has a 6 inch strap that clips to the seat frame. The pictures show how these are constructed. There may be an easier way to replicate these than the factory method; you can decide. The attachment of the vinyl looks like fussy work. It's amazing how precise the edges are. I'm sure I've left out some dimensions or other descriptions so feel free to ask questions. Again, sorry for the delay in responding; I moved last year and my parts got completely disorganized. I was relieved to find these.

Great stuff, Joe!  These are different than the Custom Royal buttons - they are rectangular rather than trapazoidal.

Those are the buttons. Thanks, Joe! I too, owe you an apology! I have lots of the embossed door panel vinyl and I will be sure to get you enough for your car and I'm sorry I didn't get back to you. I just moved as well and all my stuff is mixed up.

Paul. Those door panels look fantastic!! I've done a number of this family of cars and the Regal door panels are most definitely the most difficult to make. Way more difficult than a 57 Fireflight!

On my car the door windlace at the front was woven cloth and copper vinyl at rear,
SMS does not have the woven stuff, but I have found some that looks close, mine is probably faded?
