    Hey that's pretty cool.:cool: I don't subscribe or usually buy that magazine so I wasn't aware of that article, probably to late to get one now... Looks like the photographer was on a ladder?

    That number of 12 was on a temporary sign I made for the show last fall. It was just an educated estimate on my part. No one really knows how may original born with engine cars are still around so don't use that number as fact.

    Yeah I also have original motor, but I tore a drive-shaft in half and when it let loose it broke the trans case up pretty bad.
    So I had to replace the tail housing, and main housing...and then after I tried putting it back in, I found out the main shaft was bent, so had to pull it back out AGAIN. :(

    Wish I would have kept that case, it had M22 on it, even though the window sticker said M21.

    That HAGERTY estimator description did not mention born with (or w/o)
    drivetrain as being a value indicator. We all know there is a huge difference
    in these values based on

    1) Born with eng/trans (VIN matches body VIN)
    2) C/E engine (with docs)
    3) Correctly dated correctly coded replacement eng
    4) Correctly coded, wrong dated
