Picking up Ruby
- Written by Daniel Livingston
Going through the receipts, I found that many parts had been purchased over the years. Some small and some large. I had a box full of smaller parts still in their packaging, including spark plugs, wires, points and a condenser. So I know not everything was put on the car and a much needed tune-up was planned.
I had receipts for 5 new 175x80R13 radial white wall tires. I had heard that my father-in-law had searched far and wide for original size/style tires and eventually found them at a local tire dealer. I also found a receipt for a replacement carpet. Now, the interior had no carpet at all.
The floor was a black rubberized vinyl material with a red pattern printed on it. I believe this was supposed to appear as carpet. A little research was needed to determine if this car ever came with carpet.
