Nice looking coupe!

My car was titled in CA as a 1971, even though it was built on 02/70.

More pics! What are your plans for it?

Hi Steve - welcome to the group. Not sure about your level of mechanical ability, but I like to recommend Rob Seigel's Memoirs of a Hack Mechanic book specifically for the section on making an old car reliable. The book steers you to focus on stuff than can leave you stranded, which is often not where we start when buying older cars. I know the first thing I did was change the steering wheel, for example.
