A New Beginning

Well we got a few donor cars and are gonna use the best parts out of those cars.
One is a 1975 ln and one is a 76. The 75 is a bucket seat and console car. the interior is alright but it has been sitting for 10 years. My personal prize possession out of the cars is in the trunk of the 75 was a complete interior minus dash pad and bezel. we also got all glass except for the front because we will just get new. we will take the roof off of one of the cars to put on mine. Any questions just ask.

Just the console alone is a steal for $250! It's like you got the car for free with that...

Ya missed the floor shift tilt column, worth a lot too. From past sales the column and console would bring over $600.

Well havent Posted in a while, because of school and work but i am making progress on disassembly. got the interior all gutted and the engine and tranny are also out, so now what we have left is to replace the roof and replace the dash then get it blasted to get the surface rust off. then were gonna put the bucket seat bracing and also the tracks. and this is where we are so far....

Finally got back to working on the car after the winter break and got the new roof on and the bucket seat and console brackets in.. next step is to clean up the interior metal a bit better then talk to the sand blaster guy to see what he can do, then install the new dash and prime, seal ,and paint the interior.
then to the good ol' body work and trying to find a color that i can be definate on!!!!!
