    Just want to get it running and driving reliably and safely first then see what to do from there.

    I love that Sixties Ford color. The parchment fabric and vinyl should be plentiful. How many Km showing on the odom? Can you snap a pic of it? I might be able to tell you if the distance is original or not

    I can do that when I get home. Judging by the condition of everything else, it seems to be accurate. After thinking about it though, its possibly miles. Not sure Canada was on board with the metric stuff in '68. I'll take a look at the speedo to verify.

    edit- around 110,000
