Re: [GFS] Sold It!

Thank you for the kind words!!!
She is in good hands...but it will be years before she is ready for showing.
This will be a slow,, meticulous ,careful, AND FINAL effort on my part.
I have found her to be a near perfect example on how she came out of the factory--down to tiny clips,,clamps,,looms,,brackets,, that just do not appear on many other examples.
NOTE--The coil was incorrect also!
But both the correct coil and fuel pump are ready to go on!!,( probably 2-3 years down the road)
The 58 FURY with GOLDEN COMMANDO was and IS my favorite of all time!!
I saw a new one in a showroom when I was 10.
You are welcome to visit her as she stays under 'observation' ,, probably until spring
