    Intersting car.
    Like the dogdish caps and the low stance. The silver paint and subtle graphics with the cowl induction hood look nice to.
    Overall its a nice driver but you need to see the trim tag and more details to verify true status.
    If you are trying to find a restored original RS / SS then it would not be something I would be driving alot. This car could be original but has enough modifications and deviations to personalize it but also makes it a fun driver.

    The price seems high considering the appearance in the photos in my opinion but if all the work were complete, then it could be a value.

    IMHO...for that money the paint should be better than 7.5 out if 10......

    Kind of what I was thinking. There are a lot nicer cars out there for that kind of cash

    If you buy, do a lot of homework and make sure it is an SS. Without original engine or some paperwork, it might be difficult to verify if it is a Van Nuys car.
    The price seems a bit steep for a car without original engine. The original engine counts for a lot on a SS.

    There were a few things that concerned me. I don't know how big of a deal it really is, but the wood grain? If the grain is on the wheel, shouldn't it be on the dash bezels and door inserts?

    The cowl hood and the change of the body and interior color. Something looks fishy with the most rear body mount. Is that just a bolt?


    I was just iffy because I would think if it really was a 60,xxx mile car, why has so much been replaced?

    assuming it is a Van Nuys car, the build sheet should be on top of the gas tank ... unless that was removed during the "restoration"

    What do you do if all that is missing? How do you verify authenticity? If I have a buddy go look at it, what does he look for?

    He does have "best offer", what would a good price for it based on what we can see and know?
