And here I thought those were super rare and only available on a handful of Daytona race optioned cars...

Probably hundreds of them shipped to Poland...

1971BB427 Looks a lot more solid than the convertible was when you started! Might get a lot more than a frame from this one!

Yes. Pretty complete. Fenders are so, so and grill teeth are plate able The knobs are on the radio if I remember.

Both this car and my convertible are power glide cars which mean they should both be full oil pressure cars and both have desirable 3:55 rear ends. Both are still complete from the air breather to the fan. Either one should be a good parts source for a restorer.

I believe the seats may be useable. License tag on the rear bumper is 1972.

There should be people out there who are interested in parts when the time comes.

John long Got the hardtop home today. This thing is definitely not a builder but I do believe the frame is pretty fair. It appears someone has tried to start it but I have no reason to think it would run. Surely the seller would have mentioned it if he got it to start.

Believe it or not, I never thought to ask.

John long One of my buddies came over today and we picked the body up off the frame.



It was really exciting to pick up my Christmas present and slide it in under the body and let the body down on top of it. The fit appears to be on the money so my next job is to mark the wheel wells where they need to be repaired.







Doggone I have had a good day. Thanks again to any and all who helped make this happen.
