I'm all for resto modding, but that went a little too far. The trailer hitch is a nice touch.

Take off the scoop, spoiler and never take the top off and it's a really rust free car with a good motor. Oh, new carpet and stock seats and it would be OK.. Built 455 with OD tranny and 12 bolt, not a bad deal..
I took the hitch off my 70.. If you think it's nice, I may put it back on.. I actually wanted to leave it on so I could tow the bike to runs.

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

I've seen primered, rust bucket 65's and thought they were beautiful. I did'nt think you could make one this ugly. What a total butcher job.

I saw a black 69 Torino Cobra once. All the goodies from the factory, Super Cobra bla bla bla, four speed, gold reflective stripe and a white interior. Just awsome. Except the owner put one of those hideous do it yourself sunroofs. Sucker stuck up 2" when it was closed. Totally ruined the car IMO.

I guess I'm just as guilty in some folks eyes.

When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

I think its nice. It just needs a couple of improvements. Get rid of the hood scoop, rear spoiler, blacked out chrome, side pipes, rear seat, t-tops. You know, just a couple of things.

It looks as if they ran out of money when it came to the interior.

The saddest part of this is that it was a ONE OWNER CAR (his dads) all original until he got the bright idea of "hopping it up". this is the 4th time this car has been listed on ebay- hey buddy cut your losses and give it to you daughter- just think if he left it original and sank the money into a restoration the car would be sold by now for 30k+
