Hello everyone, thought I'd say hello and introduce myself/my P6! I have a 1973 3500 in Almond. The car was languishing in (thankfully dry) storage for the best part of 7 years, I pulled it out of a lockup back in April and after a bit of recommissioning - and some trials and tribulations - it's now back and rumbling on our roads again. And what a lovely thing it is too! I have a few different cars, but this is the only one that consistently gets people smiling and waving and coming over just to say hello and chat to you about it. Case in point, I was at the supermarket yesterday afternoon and a lady in her silver years, elegantly dressed, came over as I was loading my shopping into the boot: "You know, I used to be loved in a car just like this...loved many times..!" After taking a moment to recover my composure, I had to ask "By the same chap?" "I won't say.." (!!!) and then with a wry smile she walked away.. That sort of conversation doesn't happen when you're in a diesel BMW, that's for sure! I do have some questions but I shall try to ask these in the appropriate sections (this place has already proven to be an absolute treasure trove of information and knowledge). Although... if someone could kindly answer just this one - because I've seen different posts which appear to give conflicting advice and I'm curious to know what my car has: of the two autos, 35 and 65, which gearbox has the dipstick on the same side of the engine as the oil dipstick, and which has it on the opposite side? (I believe that's how you tell the difference?) Anyway, some pics of the car: The first time she saw daylight in several years! And now on the road. Cheers!
