Finally got the car back to IL and started to clean it up. Overall he car is in really good shape. There is virtually no rust on it. Just a very little bit starting to form on the front fender by the hood. The paint is in really good condition but will probably need a new paint job as there are some chips in that that won't be able to touch up since it is 30+ years old. Will need the Recaro seats to be redone and will need a new arm rest. Drained the old gas out of it and then drained the oil which was mostly sludge. Bought sludge remover and put that in the case to help break it up. The mice ate the plug wires and the battery is totally shot. What spark plugs and wires do you guys recommend?

Here are a few picture.

The general consensus is that the original Bosch copper-core single electrode spark plugs are the best to use. I'm not sure of the part number, but they should be easy to find. I'd go with Bosch or Clewett Engineering wires.

Just bought a set of Beru Wires and Bosch plugs from Pelican parts. Thanks for the suggestions. Now onto looking for a battery, fuel filter and oil filter. The current fuel filter on it is square and all the factory ones I see are circular shape so that tells me it is aftermarket. Also my Grandpa installed a additional canister oil filter which is aftermarket.

Battery recommendation AGM, no free acid, prevents hell hole issues.
Optima, Bosch makes one but the connections are in the wrong place.

Those seats look like Scheels. Are they marked Recaro?

Look at my Scheel (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welcome.png) logo on my seat. A little different shape?

I was told by my dad and Grandpa that they are Recaro's but I will take a second look cause the seats do look similar.

Also I see Duracell has a AGM battery that the terminals look correct on from Batteries Plus. Anyone have any experience with this one?

Update. Actually got the car running to day. First time it ran in 18 years. And really it didn't take make to get it to go. Drained all the old oil and fuel out of it. Had to rebuild the electric fuel pump. Had to take off and clean out one of the carbs, had to change the plugs and wires, new battery and it started. Super excited. Still more to go but knowing that ir ran is amazing.

This is a Konig driver's seat, but sure looks a lot like a Scheel 401/501, except for the leg bolsters

I looked up you seats and I think they are Konigs

Round logo.

There are great seats.

Thanks for the input. The logo on both seats are so busy worn that I can't see them. I will look into Konigs.

Looking for some parts advice.

1. Right under the engine hatch there is a black plastic funnel that a house connects to bring water out of the engine bay and under the car. Both the funnel and hose are melted on the drivers side. Any idea where I can get new ones?

2. The car has duel Weber 44 carbs in it. The air filters that were on it looked to have come from a dune buggy as the cover said Claude's Buggies on it. They are oval and measure about 7" long x 4" wide x 3.5" tall. Any idea where I can get new air filters?
