From the ad:

This is a very fresh looking body off frame restoration. It was done right.

Dash top was replaced with the poor repro. Both tags have been removed from the car. Ensure they were re-installed on the original body.


Learning more and more about less and less...

OMG!  They should have kept the red/red!  Plus who installed floor plugs from the bottom!??? Multi leaf springs in a mono rear, so many fit and finish errors. :sigh:

Did they actually weld the convertible cross brace to the floor pan?

And who doesn't like ample use of zip ties? I mean fastening brake lines to axles with zip ties is proof of superior craftsmanship!

Hideous. The dash color is enough to make me nauseous,

Among all the other things, why spend this effort and money on a Camaro and then install the speedometer face with an impact wrench ?

Really classy -
