I am glad you used a lot of the original factory metal.  The reproduction panels many times do not have the exact correct lines that the factory panels do. It is harder and more extensive in labor to use factory donor pieces.  It does pay off in the way the car looks.  It is too bad that you have to sell it after all you have done.  Again, I am glad you saved it.  This is a pretty decent group here.  I don't think you will have tomato throwing.

He's a brave soul bringing it back from the dead. Hats off to him for doing it.

He knows as anyone who buys it, that it won't ever be a thoroughbred class value'd Hemi car. Those are the original triple digit cars that never get driven. At least this one could be driven and still carry some authenticity.

WOW. That's an amazing story.  I may actually know where the Hemi is. I was talking to a guy down here a few weeks ago that has a Hemi Satellite. He got the engine and trans out of a GTX back in the day.

If I had the space and the $$$ I'd buy up a few of these type cars and put them on display as is...this car from Carlisle got me started:

Ed has always been a wheeler dealer.  I bought several cars from him when I lived in Lynchburg.  I never had a complaint.  I knew what to look for and what questions to ask also.  If you don't ask he won't tell you.

So cool!  Would love to see the pics of what was left of the original car.  That's a sweet pic at dusk, burnt orange has really grown on me.

So I was here before you :woo:



 

You know I'm always late to the party :eek4:

Unfortunately I was not involved in the metal work, it came to me as a roller. I disassembled what was done and had it painted. It came with a truck load of the original parts which I was strictly enforced to use. Also I can attest to the fact that there was more welding done on this car then I've ever seen before. Not all panels were attached at the factory seems, this car has had an impressive amount of metal work done to it :2cents:

...and yes it did  sell and the new owner was aware of the history and was happy to pay fairly large $$$ for the car proving there is an asss for every seat.
