Anyone looking for an intense project?
#1
I found this beauty in a field near Dallas. Its been sitting in the same location for 27 years. I was hoping to take it and save it but I just don't think I can do all of that. I am having a hard enough time with the one I have now.

Not one good panel and not original engine. It now has a 351W.

Anyway - Hollar if interested in saving her from her demise.

I spoke with the homeowner. She tells me that it belongs to her ex-husband. He brought it home and dropped it there. Two years later they divorced and he left...25 years ago. She says its an eyesore and wouldn't mind seeing it go but with all of her property its not in her way either.

I really wanted to take it but I just don't have the place, time or money for another project...especially this large.

Since it is not the original engine, you might want to check the door tag to see what rear end, gearing, etc came in it originally. Who knows, it may have the 31' axles and a traction Lock.

If I were you, I would get it...just for the parts. On the other hand, thee are people who restoring or resurrecting them in a lot worse shape.

Just a thought!

It is in pretty rough shape, but even parting it out might get you some good money for your project. Does it come with the tach .The gauge cluster with the tach and wiring harness is very sought after by people with dummy lights who want the original look.I called a few places when I got my car to see what they would go for and I was told around 1000$.So if the interior is decent parting it out and selling on e'bay could be worth someones time.

Thre is not one piece of sheetmetal that is ok..except maybe the roof. The interior is pretty well shot.

The car was originally a 2V with an auto tranny and the standard lower end interior. I doubt it has any high performance parts...like the rear end.

I was originally thinking of using it for a parts car, but the only thing I could use is the passenger tail light.

I'd rather see it get saved though. If I had a large enough place to put it for a few years I'd do it.
