Good luck with your project. I consider the '67 to be the best looking year for Marlins.

I think the color scheme is good just the way it is.
Long time AMC fan. Ambassador 343, AMX 390, Hornet 360, Spirit 304 and Javelin 390. All but javelin bought new.

Very jealous! I've always been a fan of the '67 Marlin, and even looked at one locally. Unfortunately, it was too much money for me in the condition it was in. LOADS of rust repair to do and collision damage. Had to pass. Glad that someone gets to have not only the car that I would love to own, but one very clean and solid. Well done!

Looks to me like you are having fun with your AMC. That's what its all about. I like the color the way it is but I am partial to red and white combo. You will get all the "bugs" out. Keep driving it is the best medicine for it !!

Very cool!  Marlins seem to be appreciating in value of late, and 67 is my favorite year. Yours looks very nice!

Thank you for the comments. Let's see how many I get on the interior...



Cool thing is, the car was ordered with the most deluxe interior and I have NOS door panels and a whole boatload of vinyl and fabric to reupholster everything. 
Some of the trim and window cranks are missing, but it came with some useful parts and I found more by networking. The steering wheel has a couple significant cracks, so I'll need to find a better one.

I'm running an original (albeit rebuilt) 343 4bbl and an M11 auto (not rebuilt) in a 67 Ambassador and have found it a great cruiser and traveling car. There are, of course, several ways you can go with your project but if it's a driver you want, you've got a lot of great pieces for it. (For a cruiser) It's moderately quick and fun to drive.

Good luck with whichever direction you plan,

After not starting, it now has a shiny new battery. And, a $16 tune-up. I bought Autolite #66 plugs and threw on plug wires and a rotor I had lying around with only about 500 miles on them. Those were on a 1973 Oldsmobile 350 motor. Thank you, compatible Delco distributor Thumbs Up

Ya gotta love the orange scheme. The previous owner told me the original owner must have painted the valve covers that way because it was like that when he bought the car. I can see the original copper color in some places. He also said it didn't have an air cleaner, so he got one from his friend that fit the old style AFB. And, he painted it to match the valve covers. When the water pump went, well the new one had to be orange, too...

I referenced the air filter number and photos of air cleaners on the web to identify it as a '66 or '67 Pontiac unit. Some of the 389s had AFBs. Well, the poncho crowd isn't going to like this any more than me, so I'll paint it up nice in black before I sell it. That won't be the only air cleaner I'll soon be painting black. I called Galvin's AMC and got the last one they had for a 1967 343, which apparently is a one-year only air cleaner. I'm learning there are a lot of one-year only things for a 1967 Marlin.

Congrats on the new fish, love the 67's, I am in the middle of restoring one I picked up in 2013 near Duluth. Been working on it since, I do have some extra parts I have picked up and am looking for others. Mine is a 343 car also, Sungold met. with black vinyl top, plan to bring it to AMO Nats this summer but have lots to do. Read with interest about your starting issues, I have some choke problems, car has a Holley with electric choke, I think the power supply to the choke is wrong, I also have a lot of blow by from the oil breather, but gonna let things run for awhile since it has not been run since 1977 and see if time may heal..lol....Best of luck...Al
