well grills can be replaced his steering wheel matches mine to the tee. my grills are black but they are also from a 77 dont have an explanation to that though a guy around here with a black s/e didnt like all the gold accents and painted his grilles black and never put on the gold hood bird since he didnt like the birds no matter what color. but my hood is off on the drivers side like that as well and i know my engine has never been replaced or rebuilt so all i can think of is maybe the hinge stuck once  throwing it off? just a thought. its too bad the guy doesnt live here so i could take a close look at it and really be able to tell what it is. i saved his pictures and zoomed in on them to see the tint in the t-tops and the center caps.

im going to guess the car will hit 10 grand given the fact it has over 2 days left and 12 bids on it so far.

What about the trim around the windshield and rear window? Are not the Y88 to be black?

It would be over 12 or 13 if were a W72/4speed. That would make it even more rare

MY BUDDY HAD ONE AND SOLD IT FOR ONLY 10 GRAND AND I TOLD HIM HE WAS STUPID IT WAS A NUMBERS MATCHING CAR. BUT THE WAY HE SEEN IT 10 GRAND HE BROKE EVEN AND THAT WAS GOOD ENOUGH SINCE HE HAD IT FOR 6 YEARS FOR FREE. THAT CAR IS NOW SOMEWHERE IN THE CHICAGO AREA OF ILLINOIS.

I REMIND HIM OF THAT EVERY TIME I SEE HIM BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO? IF I WOULD HAVE HAD THE MONEY WHEN HE WAS SELLING IT, I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT MYSELF AND ADDED IT TO THE Y88 FAMILY TREE.

you guys bought it? you lucky sons of....... you know in my opinion that car is a rare car and needs to be obtained 403 or not its a rare boy im sorry but anything under 10,000 built should be reconsidered to be trashed or parted or painted the wrong color especially when you get below 1000 of them built.

you guys got that car for a really good deal in my opinion had the right person with the right cash found that car, it would have shot way up in price....keep the original motor in it so it doesnt lose value.

rick,
Were keeping it 100% original. Were probably not going to do anything to it. only clean it up a little and change a little MISC parts. This car will be at the NATS next year. And hopfully mine :)


Thanks Rick,
Tommy
