    If that car could be had for the right price it is well worth it. The door panels alone can fetch $800.00. Most of what I found in my search throughout the midwest was rusty. I ended up purchasing mine from California and having it shipped on a open trailer for $850.00. BTW my was also an ex drag car. No fuel cell though.

    I think the auto will bring the price way down. Now that's just my opinion. As tor the original OP PA. car, they are hard to find on the east coast without any rust or other problems. Please don't buy a car that needs restoration. I made that mistake on a 67rs one owner. Took it to my body guy, and when we were done, had 40k in the car. It was probably the nicest 67rs in the world but when I sold it for 36k and that was luck? I took a real big loss. Lesson learned! I don't even look for a car if it is not a California car anymore. I watch all the car auctions, Mecum, Barrett and others. They just don't bring the big bucks like most think?

    I ended up finding a nice 71' base with full hotchkis suspension, roll cage and a built 355 oval track motor. 8yr old paint job looked decent and no visible rust. It drives, and starts everytime . That's all I care about.

    Spent $22500, after negotiating from $26k. This is an NC car.
