Can't stress this enough either. Too many people just hang onto the old title and don't transfer it into their name for a long time. Do it before you spend another nickel on restoration. I know you said the seller is a friend, but if someone got ahold of the vin when it was displayed and had a fake title made, they could be a big problem.

Damn cool to find that car, so many of us have longed for a find like that for many years. '66 is one of my 2 favorites, '70 being the other. Look forward to a new thread on this when it's time.

Hope things have been OK with you. I HAVE to see the pics of this car done. Super nice restoration.
The build date on the frame is exactly the same as my '66 SS, but mine was built in Atlanta and had the black out tail panel. May still have been painted at the dealer, but it was over the base color when I sanded it all down.

Thanks, yeah the title is already in his name and will be I'm my name soon enough. I don't mess around with titles. I've had quite a few old cars/trucks and most were from out of state, some only had registrations.
I will be sure to post pics of her when she reaches my garage. I like 70's as well, highest HP year!

Congrats Tom on the car, really nice to hear of a complete numbers match car in the Slate!

Hey Thankyou. In the past few weeks I cut and buffed the car. I have just the hood left. Im kinda into another project 67 Malibu driver car so i have been balancing my after work time between this car and the 67. I will probably spend this summer finishing the interior, putting on the vinyl top and sending the trim off to be re-anodized. Should have finished pictures next winter.

That's cool you know how to do all that, makes you appreciate the finished product so much more. I'd like to see some pics of both cars. 67 was my all time favorite year. Good luck with both of your cars!
