Thanks guys....will update with more pics, we are close to getting paint on the body, underneath and engine compartment. I have learned to make a lot of missing parts, and most importantly made friends around the world seaching for missing items.

Not a restoration for the faint hearted and light checkbook. Charlie, yes that is the finished car, a very good example of a restoration to one of the highest levels on one of these cars. I have about a 100 reference pics of that car that has helped me along the way. Beautiful example. I have also located 2 original car that I have visited last year that has been so beneficially in the accuracy of restoring my car. Like the camaro stuff we all know and love, it is in the details when you strive for a assembly line correct restoration. These are no different - with the exception that there are a limited number of qualified enthusiast and cars to refer to.....but that is part of the challenge that drives me.

Thanks again for the compliments....more to come.....the transformation has been amazing.

There is one that i know of that has a SBC in it......one of the 15.

I think mine is one of 10 or so with the original motor/drive train - have to check on that number, but it is 10 or less for sure as i believe i know where most of the 15 are located.

Truly awesome car Eddie with some gorgeous styling. I had never heard of one of these before but I look forward to seeing further progress. What color was this one originally and are you going to return it to that color?
