Default Zedder's Red '67 L78

Here is a little info on the new '67 L78 that I just purchased. The car was advertised on ebay in 2006 and was a no sale. The owner and I kept in touch over the years and 2 hours before Tony was to inspect the Black L78 in Detroit, I get an email saying that he is finally ready to let the car go and accept my latest offer! Coincidence??? So, I call him as soon as I get home and we finalize the deal. Here is what I know so far about the car. The car was apparently sold new in New York and was raced by the first owner soon after he got it. It is a Bolero Red '67 SS396 L78 with M21 and 3.73 posi. All of the drivetrain is original. Black standard interior, am radio, power disc brakes, rally wheels, and a cowl plenum breather was added at some point.

Early in the car's life, he staggered the rear shocks like a '68 and added multi-leaf rear springs to help with wheel hop. Nothing else was cut-up or changed and the car retains all of it's original panels except the trunk lid (the SS hood comes with the car). There has been NO RUST in this car ever [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/smile.gif[/img] It has had one repaint in the wrong shade of red.

I'm not sure when the second owner bought it, but he sold it to the guy I bought it from in 1998 and it had 12,000 miles on it. It currently has 20,993 miles. As you can see it has a number of 70's mods like the wheels, cowl hood, air shocks, spoilers, electronic ignition, chrome alt bracket, flex fan etc. Also, the current owner put fresh rings and bearings and roller rockers on the car - original carb, intake, distributor (in a box), alternator.

Here are a few pics:

The main reason the car didn't sell on ebay was the due to the paint color being wrong and so the owner bartered with a friend to get it painted. It spent 2 years in paint jail just to come out fish-eyed. So, it is still de-chromed waiting for a proper paint job. I would really just like to set a budget of $20K to get the car repainted and all of the incorrect items straightened out, but I'm not sure if I should just wait and go all out with a full cosmetic resto of the sub and under-carriage etc. Decisions, decisions...
