Introduction of build
So ----started a build around 2008---had a really Long build thread with Pics on another site - Got Lost to Time.
Stopped build around 2013 = Life.
Now - Have a 15 year old kiddo <girl> that wants to finish build it and drive it to Skool. AWESOME!
So this summer will be a press to get it back together - will document in this thread.
Here are the details (Or what I thought in 2008)
: <Pulled relevant Excerpt to here>
-2 prior owners (2nd owner never drove it and immediately began dissassembly).
-True 'barn find' ... well shed really.
-The car is FULLY documented...I even have pictures dated March 1968 with the owners hand writing on the back about adding a shelby spoiler (He must've never got around to it). (and all protectoplate stuff and manuals)
- Original: 'J-Code' 302-4 barrel, Highland Green, 3.25 axle ratio, 3-Speed Manual, GT Equip Group, AC, AM Radio, Reflective Group, Remote LH Mirror, Wheel Lip Moulding, Electric Clock.
-Aside from the second owner taking the engine, tranny, and font clip off (I have them) this car is 100% complete. The engine looks like it did in 1968 (It's just rustier and not in the car).
- VERY minor rust issue in the lip of the trunk. No other rust on the vehicle that I could find. Right side looks like he drug a highway marker or something down it and did a basic repair and cheap-o repaint.
...Reading the above ---yikes was I wrong about the rust and body work...
Here are some pics:
