Shake-N-Bake, Ya I kind of figured the clean up of the frame will show me what I'm really dealing with, I can only see so much with the body still sitting on it. But again, I was expecting far worse the first time I slid under the car. I just looked at the block & the only numbers I see are: 220234 with WT under the number. I'll "PM" you the same numbers, as far as the body trim tag, I'll type in the information here now & figure how to get the photo's from my Iphone onto my laptop asap. I'm assuming that tag is the one on the firewall top driver side. as I read it:
General Motors Corporation
ST 66 24217 BAL 3081 BODY
TR 223 NN PAINT
Body By Fisher 6
That's the best I can replicate the tag without a picture, I promise I'll figure out how to transfer the pictures from my iphone asap. As far as the build sheet & more information on the car, I'll try & talk to my Uncle's widow, she like my Dad, don't like to talk about my Uncle Bobby, still a sore spot in their heart I guess, him being gone. It really is a very sad story & I could see it in my Dad's eyes the first time I drove the car to his house after he had passed away. He held it together, but I never brought the car there again. OK, on to happier thoughts... I was a Plymouth 'CUDA guy my entire life, had 4 different cars over the years, 2-'74's 1-'73 & 1-'72 & I found the original build sheet for each one woven in the springs of the rear seats. I'll pop the rear seat out of the GTO as soon as my wife & daughter are up in the morning to see if Pontiac put them in the same place. Thank You for the interest in my "Quest" so far Very Happy with the information I've received thus far. Pic's to follow...
