tell him you will buy it without a title and just a bill of sale as a body shell like junk yards do with truck cabs

Yeah the junkyard stuff sucks, went up to the pull a part and they had a 72 Firebird up there I wanted the whole car but they said they wouldnt sell it and it ended up being crushed. I just went to a yard yesterday that has 75 to 100 acres of land and there is a car on ever bit of it. They had two Trans ams and said they had a Formula but i dint find it. Had over 20 68 and 69 Camaros but no Firebirds. Even had a Mach 1 Mustang,a bunch of old stuff like chevy,ford,pontiac,mopar, and even AMC. They had 2 Gremlins and a AMX. Had a really decent shape 59 Catalina with a motor in it was a big block. Would that big block be a 421 or ?

it works on pick up trucks i dont see how it wouldnt work on a bird. some people classify the frame as the car and others classify the body as the car.

When I go back up there I'll check thinking its a 389 or a 421. I traded a old beaten up Buick GS for one of those gremlins up there. ThInk I might try to buy the pair of trans am's later this summer.

Yeah it is! I know this isn't a AMC site but if and when I get that gremlin I am going to try to put a LS1 in it, lower it some and tub it out but put street legal tires on it. I am thinking on painting it PPG Tangerine Pearl. Those T/A's I am going to get all the useable stuff off of if I get them cause there to far gone to restore.
