RE: [T3] Advice on Type 3 purchase.

are you sure notches were never imported over here? 
for a car that was never sold here seems to be a lot
of em(at least by those standards).  im in the process
of trying to locate a decent T3.  i would love a notch
but have all but given up on finding them out
here(cheyenne, WY).  i know of a number of squarebacks
in town and one fasty(none are for sale).  all the T3s
ive seen around here are the 71+ cars.  and a lot of
automatics around here.

im lookin for a 67 since i want the carbs(personal
preference) and the 12v electrical system.
