salvage yard 389 from '64 Bonneville - not seized but definitely seen better days; 3 speed manual
update: sold motor & tranny, made a deal on a 400/400 combo, will need complete rebuilds
Interior
floor pan, trunk floor & package shelf need replacing; floor supports can be cleaned up and reused - front one had already been replaced; car came without an interior
update: LH sail panel support, rear & LH roof supports replaced; bought front buckets, AT console w/dual gate shifter.
Exterior
frame, doors, deck lid, RH fender, & rockers are decent. rear window & windshield channels, filler panel, rear wheel housings & tail panel need replacing. quarters need patching. front of the car (firewall, door jambs, cowl, etc.) is completely roached but it came with one from another car. core support & inner fender wells had already been replaced. hood was completely rotted.

update: rockers, quarters, & one floor support were worse than first thought & replaced; roof's windshield reveal too far gone for repair - new roof in the plans; secured an OE hood & LH fender
Wheel and Tire
junk wheels on the GTO but my TA had a set of Rally ll's on when I bought it - just a matter of restoring them
