Well I stayed in contact with the Owner that Passed a few Months ago for he was Primary lead on getting all the info I had for these cars for He was in Spitting distance of where these cars were Built. Five or so years ago I met him thru a CL ad and stayed in touch with him over the years, I was very sad to hear of his Passing he was a very knowledgable person with these cars, He knew the salesmen, dealership owners, The Company that built them. He had all there contacts, His wife will be sending meall that she has even the Original window Sticker WOW

It sucks he passed away as it sounds like he was passionate about these cars, although I suspect he'd appreciate that you were carrying the torch on.

You've got a lotta work ahead on these it would seem.

A little bit of work yea, But less than what Mine needed His wife is Happy I ended up with them rather than someone that would not keep them as original as they are. I hate letting my black one Go but the Bigger picture is what I am looking at.

More like to get Welding Mr Roboto, The Owner passed away right before he started floor pans needs both front done. The little 305 2 Barrel actually runs pretty good, stops on a dime, I think I am just leaving the 305 in there for now, Just got done switching motors in the black one. Little burnt out on motor swaps LOL Everything else is complete and accounted for down to the Dual exhaust

Look in the classifieds. Someone had one for a decent price, I'd probably want gas for what you're doing though and likely 023 wire.
