Re: 69 Ford Wagon Electrical Issue
Yup, it's probably seized. Your car is pushing 50 with 20-some years of sitting, keep on the alert for corrosion and degradation of parts. I wouldn't trust the brakes and I'd go through the electrical connectors, cleaning as much as possible before ever putting it on the road. My truck is about 4 years younger and I'm forever chasing electrical issues. I keep saying I ought to go through the body and replace everything... Good luck, have fun, and enjoy.
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
