Surprised I never found this site! Here’s my ‘69 XR7 in its original setup and current. I picked it up from a lady who inherited it in 2016 from the original owner who passed in 2015, he was 85 years old. It was under a tree with a cloth cover, literally had to peel it off car.
It was built in October ‘68 at the San Jose factory to his specifications including AC, PS, AM/FM stereo and those door guards (which I almost threw away when I repainted!). When I saw those on the marti report I was pretty happy I kept them! The car has been in the SF Bay Area its whole life and mostly parked indoors until the lady who inherited it took possession.
It’s wearing its original color, dark ivy green except I didn’t keep the vinyl top, has black leather interior. I had the emblems restored also. The original owner was a single guy who never had a family and my understanding was he mostly kept to himself. I’m guessing he led an alternative lifestyle that was frowned upon back then, because of that the interior was flawless with wear only on the drivers seat. It’s like nobody has ever sat in the other seats. Other than paint and some mechanical work it’s pretty much all original. Pretty standard 351w/2bbl w FMX, it’s just a weekend cruiser for me so I’m good w that for now but do plan an EFI conversion one day for reliability.
