    Absolutely true.....I know, 'cause I was there. Can't tell you how many smog pumps/lines and cast iron exhaust manifolds we threw in the dumpsters back then :eek:

    Merely playing devil's advocate here but... just because someone gives you a "notorized statement" doesn't mean that it's the truth. There should be some paper trail, ie; repair/inspection receipts. I have 30 years of paperwork to back-up the roughly 7000 miles I have put on my car since I purchased it.

    Glad you said it. Couldn't agree with you more..........There have been and will be more "sworn to affidavit" cars in the future.

    My point exactly. This is why I'm trying to locate the original owner or a relative. That's the link I'm missing. Though having been in the automotive restoration business since the late 70's, I invite anyone to look at this car and tell me otherwise. Just trying to find the paper trail, otherwise to most it's just a claimed 9,100 mile car.

    Anyone who signs and has notarized a statement containing false information is a fool, as they are leaving themselves open to legal action in the future. A notarized statement is a binding legal document.

    I hope you are successful in finding the original owner!

    Hello everyone. For the last two months, my son and I personally went over the whole car with a fine tooth comb. We carefully detailed and noted the entire car as best as we could, and took over 400 pictures throughout the process. Here is a link to some of the pictures we uploaded to a photo bucket. The further we got into going over the car, the more we became amazed as to the originality of the car and how it actually left the factory. As stated above, the car does not have the correct exhaust system or shifter. But, other then that I believe that 90% of the rest of the car was untouched, as it left the factory. Thanks again everyone for looking, and for the input.

    Very nice car. Did you refinish the wheels or did the previous owner do them?

    I was one of those guys that bought a brand new 73 Type LT with Z28 option and the
    first thing I did was pull the smog pump and manifolds off and throw them in the dumpster.
    Then I put on a set of Hedman headers. I even took off the wheels(but kept them) and put
    a set of ET chrome 5 spokes on.

    1971zed, the wheels have never been refinished. The car still has the original, date coded wide ovals on it and factory markings on the back sides of the wheels!
