Default Restore or not Restore?

Tom
Will the car eventually receive a full restoration taking into consideration the current condition and non original motor.

Eventually yes, but for the time being, will remain as is, except for more correct wheels and tires, and after MCACN, a 427 with aluminum heads.

Come Spring I will attend a few shows with it and let my grandson Drew race it at such events as SCR23. He has driven the car and is pretty excited about making some passes in it.

It's current condition really doesn't bother us, and being so unusual, I want folks to see it pretty much as it left Jay Kline. As they say, only original once. The non-original engine issue, not for sure how one would determine that with a transplant car anyway, but regardless, wanted to be upfront regarding the engine.

Though kind of intimidating being surrounded by several award winning Yenkos, I really enjoyed showing the ’73 Yenko, I appreciate Doug, Andy, Rick/Annie, and of course Bob Aston, for allowing me to be part of Yenko/Day Two display.

As expected, lots of questions surrounding the car. Thankfully I have a ton of original paperwork, plus info from the original owner, that answered most of them. A few, such as why were the package tray and back seat altered, is anyone’s guess.

It was good to see this car in person, the last of the breed.

We heard nothing but great compliments all weekend long about the display and cars and Lynn stopping by only added to the excitement. It was a great weekend and we had a blast. As far as being intimidated, people love these cars when they are unrestored/unmolested as it brings back lots of memories from when they were younger. I know it certainly got my attention and we enjoyed being parked between two original unmolested cars.

Thanks for the kind words.

IMO, this is one of those cars one has to see in person to fully understand just how different this car is compared to other Yenko modified cars. and, except for Don's race cars, most Yenkos in general.

Thankfully all of the original paperwork was saved, or else would have been the center of a never ending debate. I don't need another one of those. LOL
