I think I found the Protecto-Plate for my 427 4-spd convertible


As you can imagine, more documentation is better with a car like this.  When I bought it, he THOUGHT he had the plate but could not find it.  I just received a cryptic text, years later, indicating he's got it and do I want it?  Of course I want it!

Super, every bit of documentation helps!!!! The stamping #'s of the block, tranny & diff are listed on the plate.

When I bought the 70 Parisienne, I knew they had the Protect-O-Plate as I'd seen it previously, but it was nowhere to be found. A year or so later the lady shot me a note saying she'd found it.

Very cool. If youre worried about him being too inconvenienced to mail it, I could pick it up (assuming hes still in Edm) and send it your way.
Congrats!
PS. I have mine for my Beaumont. Original owners surname was Tempest LOL.

That is cool how the last owner remembered about you! Most would just discard....how did he get a hold of you? Cool docs to have!

I actually texted him every 4-6 months to update him on the car, how its coming along, etc, and so was always in some contact with him, so I guess when he ran across it he knew how to get ahold of me! That's how I got the car itself too... just persistently bugged him forever.

Nice score Dave. You really can't put a value on stuff like that.

I seem to remember you posting a photo of the Protect-O-Plate way back when you were looking at buying the car. Did it go missing?

 I call it pleasant persistence, like a good salesman. wear em down but so nicely they feel bad rejecting you!

It's not a bad thing as long as it's done in honesty.  At least the seller knows the new owner will care for the car properly because they really wanted it.
