My brother purchased this car in 1972. It had caught on fire and the lower portion was in primer. He rewired the entire car because it was shot. He also had it painted black and sold the original hood. His idea was to make it a "SLEEPER". The engine was bored 30 over and had a mechanical advance distributor. Also high doom pistons. Not sure what else. At one time he was racing it at the drag strip in Lansing Michigan. He claims he had it turning the quarter in the low 11's. I know it smoked my 69 Road Runner! He finally spun a bearing in it and parked it with the intent of rebuilding it. It has now been sitting for some 20 odd years.
Recently he gave the car to me , I guess he decided he was never going to be able to afford to restore it. So now it is in my garage, which my wife isn't real happy about, and I have began the parts search. So far have found front floor pans and rocker panels. Still need to locate some quarter panels and rear floor pans. Also a original hood and a front bumper.
I'm looking forward to restoring this car to its former glory and to seeing it on the road again smokin the Mustangs and Cameros and all the rest. And yeah I know its the real thing. It has all the right numbers!
