Since you are a pretty good restorer as far as I can tell I feel like I could trust your assessment LOL.Does it have Hydro suspension/subframes? I assume the 1098 motor would need rebuilt etc..
Quote from: cstudep on August 25, 2020, 08:57:39 AMThanks for the info, I would be doing the resto work myself, or at least attempting to as I am learning LOL.Just drew up some plans for a rotisserie build, just need to buy the steel. The plan was to strip my 60 down to the shell and get it repainted/some minor body work stuff done.I could then use the rotisserie to work on the 68 shell I have, but I am still trying to determine if it's worth tackling as it's pretty rough in spots like around the floor to firewall area (completely rusted through below the steering mount area on both sides of the tunnel), rear boot floor, back corners, part of the rear seat shelf and where it meets the boot floor, etc... For sure worse than this one but I got it basically given to me with the purchase of some other things I bought several years ago and all the glass was good in it along with some other decent parts I could salvage so I hauled it home. I have it stripped to the shell now, just not sure it's worth fixing with all the rust.
