Hello everyone... NEW-B here in Fresno, CA. Into Cars, Chicks, & Booze.
Just picked up a project... a 1966 GTO. Not sure which direction I will go with it yet(no engine - Has 6.5 Liter emblems outside and on the door that is still there). It was a 4-Speed (did come with the Munci out of the car), Posi (supposedly), not sure what engine it came with... the hood has a "shaker" style 400 scoop (looks off of a Firebird) screwed on top of the hood (OUCH!!!) It's missing a drivers door... has some HUGE old school wheels in the rear (like you would see in the '80's...) on some slot mags. (would be curious to see what you guys think its "worth" or one of you might pay for such a project...)
I do have some questions about the data plate.... Tried posting pics, but wasn't able to... (If someone can post it for me... that would be GREAT!!)
The one on my car seems to look different than others i've seen... Looks a little like this: (did the best i could with the spacing.. looks pretty accurate)
ST 66-24217 BODY BF 343
TR 223 PAINT RR
Most that i've seen have the "BODY" & "PAINT" letters all the way to the right of the tag... dont know what "ACC" means (might be accessories?!?) And what's 240?
As soon as i can, i'll post pics of it too! For sure a HUGE project.. and not much to look at... but pretty SOLID!!
Might even do a Pro Touring build out of it...
Looking forward to picking your brains... and oh.. it takes me forever to complete projects...
I've only had Classic BMWs till now... first Detroit muscle...
