He had it pulled out, bought a doner car and 100+K it was NCRS top flight restored.....orange peel paint and all - just like from the factory.
Damn thats crazy..!!

I actually wish I could do something like that for my dad, but the VIN numbers from back in the 60's were only like 8 digits long and weren't all transferred over to the newer system or something like that.. This is what I was told by the NJ Dept of Motor Vehicles.. My dad had a 68 Ford Torino GT Fastback with the factory 390, and I'd love to track that down for him..
