It looks like the valvestems are completely gone, just not broken... rodent pee must be pretty strong over time!

Holy Cow, never seen that before.

Just curious, as it took davepl a while to find his engine casting date, and eventually found it on the passenger side of the block kind of above where the starter sits, where is your casting date? I see you've got the high distributor tower as well. Is it a 3963512 block?

What a mess!

I had a box of bench vices and tools in a shed for one winter, and you should have seen the mess the mouse p*ss made of them. I can't comprehend how mice could make nests and cuddle-up to cold steel amongst their own p*ss all winter long!

I'll be tossing a black dash with a single crack, but it does have a big crack, and I'm in Seattle. My brother is visiting from Regina but I don't think it'd fit in his carry on!

 Thanks for the offer but am lucky enough to have a really good dash pad in my parts stash.

Any small parts or fasteners that I can steal from a US car for you in the next day or two, let me know!

I like the retro finned valve covers, but will they clear the brake booster on these cars?

 Fingers crossed. If I recall correctly the space between the steel valve cover and the booster was about an inch and I don't believe that the aluminum valve covers are that much taller.

Need to clean and detail the engine compartment a bit and then I'll find out.
