Default 1974 Pargo

I'm a new member who recently picked up what I think is a 1974 Pargo . Serial # 380623 . It was a friend of mines dad who passed away , and its sat out in the weather for a few years . The price was right (FREE) .

My plans are to restore it back to its past glory with a few newer creature comforts added .

Crash Test Dummy , I just read your thread on the green 72 Pargo which by the way cleaned up real nice . Your pictures are very helpful because I took the solenoid plate and heat shield off for painting and I wasn't sure if I put it back on right .

I won't be selling mine as the girlfriend has already fell in love with it and claimed it as hers .

It was free , but I've already invested over 600 buck in parts and accessories . It sure does add up fast .

Repairs have begun and after taking up the rubber mat I discovered that the floor pan was roached . I replaced it with some heavy galvanized plate steel I had left over from a trailer project . I also had to replace a couple of bad solenoids , but it runs all 3 speeds and reverse .

Some of the accessories that I've purchased for it . I've also purchased headlights , taillights , and turn signal assembly for it . The fiberglass body isn't in to bad of shape , and plan I on repainting it candy apple red .

Hope you guys like pictures , more to come .

I've also repainted the rims , purchased a couple of tires , and fabricated a trunk deck lid for it with a VW trunk latch .

The front right side had a crack so I've fiberglass matted the inside after some nifty clamping to close the crack up . After it hardened I removed the clamps and matted the rest of the crack with about 4 layers of matting . A little body filler and primer on the outside and you can't tell it was ever cracked .
