Hello, I was looking to have both my 3505s carbs for my 300J rebuilt and was wondering if there were any good rebuilders that someone would recommend in the SoCal area. I spoke with Carl about this and he recommended a couple of places but said I should see if anyone knows of a place that is relatively local to me. 91343 zip code.

Thanks for your time

About 10 years ago, I was at Don Petty's shop and there was a light green Facel Vega parked in the street in front of his shop. 

Best regards, Jim

I was at Don's house in 2014.  He had both the white 4-speed coupe and the black 4-speed convertible at that time.. 

He did not claim the convertible was an original 4sp car, only that when that he bought the car, it had all the rare 4speed parts in the trunk, including the bellhousing, transmission and headers. The parts possibly came from a Facel-Vega or maybe a factory-built 4-speed 300F otherwise lost.

Maybe not original, but I wouldn't mind owning it.

A little history on Don Petty.  Over 30 years ago, Don Petty owned what I believe was the only other surviving 300F special of the original 7.  It was a white hardtop.  Now that the black 300F special convertible has appeared in his possession, the white 300F hardtop has since disappeared.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Hi To All,

In this month’s Hemmings Bible there is a 2 page spread re a 4 speed Pont-à-Mousson black F convertible. 

I searched the Hemmings site and found the full original article from 2017. 


By Jeff Koch from the June 2017 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines

The car was owned by Don Petty, brother of Lee Petty. 

Previously, there was a white F GT owned by Tom Turner?

Some say the Petty car was made up?

Whatever the case, the article is quite informative. 

Enjoy reading about the details of the GT 300 racing legends and how Chrysler got around the rules by hiding the fact that the GTs were “factory supported.”
