Congrats!! She is truly beautiful.  2thumbs

I do have one questions and it may be a stupid question. The "Plymouth" decals on the quarters are white. Is that correct? I always thought an EK2 car came with black and the EV2 came with white.

THANKS!
If you go way back to when I started posting about the restoration you will see original white quarter and wing decals on the Superbird when I bought it way back in 1976.
There have been some other documented EK2 Superbirds with white decals also. The black decals were on the majority of the EK2 Superbirds though.

This is a perfect example why anyone restoring a car should do it to the way THEIR car was built.

Don't take the easy road and copy other folks work!  rotz

Research, research, and more research into the car you are doing, all the way back to Day 1. 

Another detail that separates the men from the boys!  coolgleamA 2thumbs

I have been in touch with the 3rd and 2nd owners of my car and found the original owner had the dealer install the chrome rally mirrors very early on into his ownership. the original owner was a dentist and had passed before I started documenting my car.
I hung the chrome rallys back on just because they look so frickin natural and can easily be swapped out for the factory equipped mirrors.

                                                      SUPERBIRD 440 SIX BARREL FUEL LINE / VACUM LINE "S" CLIP
 I thought I'd let all the January auction frenzy pass and now get back to restoration details.
So another small detail that I found out that we were missing on our SIX BARREL Superbird was the fuel line/vacuum line "S" clip.
I was able to buy a correct NOS One and clip it on.
I believe this clip is to keep the vacuum hose from drooping down onto the hot heat riser just below?
My first picture is of the NOS "S" clip.
The second picture is a close up of the "S" clip installed.
The last picture is an overall of that area.
I would like to see if any "ORIGINAL" ones are out there still in place?
If so could you share a picture with us?
Thanks! MJ

Years ago when I had six barrel cars I used the "S" clip from the torsion bars for the trunk lid. Same clip? WINGNUT

Thanks Jim!
It looks like I found the correct clip and have it in the right spot.
One more thing off the list!

I used the ones that hold the transmission lines together you often see. My first unrestored v-code '70 Charger R/T had the clip on the rear carb fuel line in the exact same spot as Jim's 'Bird.

Interesting bit of information with this clip John. Me being somewhat new to Six Packs I am learning the quirks of them piece by piece. I recently bought a factory original 6 pack fuel line setup mainly so I could get a original set of the brass tees. The repops are obviously not the same as the originals so I wanted an original set to see the markings on the back / underside. Anyway attached to the lines was one of these clips in excellent condition. Now I know what its for. 2thumbs Looks like I need to find another one for the Hemi though based on Jim's 2nd picture.  rotz

Troy I think these clips are maybe not quite the same as the transmission line clips. The one I have the two "loops" in the S are different diameters. As in one diameter for the metal tube and a smaller one for the hose.

I'd be interested if anyone has pics of the lettering on the brass tees. I've seen the Weatherhead logo and the Eaton logo also. Which / What is correct or are both?  scratchchin

So the same clip that holds the fuel main line and vapor return line as it runs along the rockers?

Frank Badalson sells the correct S clip

I seem to remember seeing mostly the Weatherhead logo on the brass blocks.

Dave,
 When you get a chance I would like for you to measure your SIX PACK "S" clip for overall height and width.
I would like to compare it with the clips in my next post.
Thanks! MJ

                                                                   S CLIPS CONTINUED!
This topic has done what I wished it would do by sharing information and getting things right!
I have attached two pictures to help us.
The first picture will show three different "S" clips laying on their sides.
The second picture will show the same clips laying face up.
Clip #1 is a known fuel line "S" clip and is 3/4" tall and 1/4" wide with two different sized openings.
Clip #2 is a known trunk torsion rod "S" clip and is 3/4" tall and 5/16" wide with the same size openings.
Clip #3 is an unknown "S" clip and is 7/8" tall and 3/8" wide that I would like to identify.
If someone has an original clip on the transmission cooling lines I would be curious to it's height and width.
I have also asked Davtona to measure the clip in his post.
Thanks! MJ

None of the above John. Mine is .25" wide x .62 " tall. So roughly 1/4 wide by 5/8 long. One loop's ID is .25" in diameter and the other is .315". So 1/4 x 5/16" I would say.  

I'm also thinking #3 on your list is for the transmissions cooling lines. Looks like a double loop for 3/8" tubes.
