    Roger, Now those are numbers that talk.
    Your car was:
    1. as I said, Gray
    2. a very cool combo interior from the factory ... black leather biscuits , black bolster and with black welts. (Still like that?)
    3. It had A/C
    4. It was a DSO (Dealer Special Order) with Blackwall tires.
    5. Sold originally to J.E.Coberly, Jr.
    6. From J.E.Coberly Dealership in Los Angeles. (Daddy loves me.)

    That's what I found.
    Good luck.

    Roger,

    Welcome to the forum. I remember seeing that car on Ebay, and also the post cards, which are still posted for sale. For some reason (guess I'm color blind) judging by the pictures, I thought it was painted in a lilac color. In any case, it is a beautiful car and I wish you lots of luck with it. If we can be of any further assistance, just ask.

    Nick,
    Thanks, the pictures of the car, including the one in the Mecum auction brochure does have a Lilac tint. It doesn't show in the real. Do you remember when the car was on ebay?

    Chuck,
    Thanks for the info. The interior is still all black, including the headliner, and still has the AC (don't know if it works) I had a copy of the invoice which showed it sold to Mr. Coberly, however, there is a gold plate on the carpet that shows a different name (can't remember what it is, Dr. Angus ?) and I have heard that should be the person who ordered it. Any thoughts on that?

    Replacement plates were available. However, the car could have been ordered for one person and delivered to another due to a cancellation.

    Mark,
    Does the pump turn clockwise or CCW?

    I think the firing order is clockwise, so that's the way you'd turn it. I'd pop a valve cover and turn it until there's oil visible at the rockers. The firing rotation might be cast into the intake manifold.

    Roger, I'm glad all is as it WAS.
    As for the Coberly vs. the good Dr., it wouldn't surprise me that that car was ordered by "Daddy" in Jr's name and they found a willing buyer. As Barry said, a brass plate and engraving can be had anywhere even by a dealer.
    I also have my production order showing (oddly enough) a buyer's name (noted as COD) and dealer in Indiana when in fact the Mark II Encyclopedia and my original warranty papers for the car show it being sold and delivered in Oakland CA. Hell, I guess it's just yet another part of the mystique (s) of the Mark II and it's history.
