I know the family that owned it, and they believe it to be 100% original. I was just worried that the VIN didn't seem to match the cowl tag.
Here's the cowl tag in its entirety:
MADE IN CANADA
ST 68 16487 0S116313
TR 859 2-11-8 9CC
The VIN is 164878114050
It's a little rough body wise (needs 1/4's, fenders, and likely rockers) but from what I can tell floor pans might be OK (hard to get at where it is in the bush, lol) and it's 100% complete. I didn't check the engine VIN but it is believed to be original.
I think it's a really cool car. Is it fairly rare? (Worth the investment in a resto?)
I have a dirt Stock car, 1967 Kaiser M715, and 1983 Camaro competing for space in the garage right now besides our daily drivers so my wife might divorce me if it drag it home, so it would need to be worth it? lol.
The 351W i was looking for is for the stock car. I race dirt oval in a fox body mustang. Putting a 351W in a compact car and beating the crap out of it with 21 other guys on a dirt track is good redneck fun!
Thx for any more insight!
