73 Grande Restoration

Just found out this car has 24k miles, and has been kept since it was first purchased.

It's extremely rare to find a one owner and low mileage car these days.  If you can sort through the rust issues it shouldn't need much mechanical work beyond routine service stuff and normal weathering wear on soft parts like weather stripping and rubber suspension bushings.

Great picture of the car. I assume that is your grandmother in the picture? She appears to be a very proud owner.  I am glad to see the car still in the family.

Big things are coming soon. Gonna replace the gas lines/tank/sending unit.
How would I go about putting the 3 center dash gauges in? (Rpm, ? ,?)
Questionable wiring, I'm on the hunt for a wiring diagram for the engine bay, I have no idea what this is
*I can't upload photos from mobile, it's the cylinder on the top right of the engine bay with wiring going to it. It has a couple ripped wires which is concerning.

Sounds like your talking about the ignition coil, as it's the only cylinder shaped thing. I can think of on the top right corner of the engine. I believe it has 2 wires going to it. A red one and a green one. The red goes to the+ terminal of the coil (cylinder shaped thingy) and the green goes to the - terminal. Then you have the Hi Tension lead that goes over to the distributor cap and plugs into the center of it. Hope it helps

If its on the right side apron of the engine compartment (not on the engine) maybe you be referring to the to the starter solenoid.  Does it look like this:

I didn't think of the starter solenoid as looking like a cylinder.  But, you might be correct by the description and the location.

Mike could very well be right. I read the post and completely missed the word "bay". It would definitely change my description, but I'm with ya, as I wouldn't think of the solenoid as being a cylinder??? I guess she'll have to give us a little more to go on?
