thanks but my father was the reason it was saved. Without him and his reputation around this area the car would have sat in that concrete tomb until who knows when. I was just the helper at that stage working off my debt for parts and paint.
Yes is was still living when we got her (the car). She had pulled out in front of someone and they t-boned her. Hit so hard it broke the A pillar away fron the roof. You can start to see the crack now after the hard years of driving by me with the 4 speed.
This happened in 1978 or 9 and it saw the light of day in Nov of 1989. Still have all the original wheels & centers. Also had a Wilson Co Motors emblem on back tail panel. As you can see it got a new GM quarter, a door off the Cortez 69 parts car and a new GM left front fender. Still has the original interior minus the dash pad. This will be the weekend fun car (drag racing) once I get to it.
