truely i'd say a 72 looking at their production numbers for any model that year, i can understand why. on the other hand i do know where a 72 is but the guy wants an arm, leg and maybe both testicles for a project car just too much if you ask me.

The 1972 model year's numbers are so low because of a prolonged strike at Norwood.  By the time the issues were resolved and the plant reopened, it was past the scheduled release of the 1973 models.  The cars in process on the line could not meet the new-for-1973 DOT collision standards so the entire in-process inventory was scrapped.  There were a lot of perfectly GOOD cars that were sent to the crusher, including some HO engines.  It was enough to make you sick. :P

this guy wants 4200 for litterally a rolling shell. motor interior and all wiring is junk and the roof and pinchwelds need attention unsure about the trunk floor as its filled with coon crap cannot see under the car either. its probably worth all of 800 if that.

That is why we decided to save as many as we can.WE all can save a transam/firebird or two you just have to want to do it.

THIS is really good,NOT::::::::: i put an add on craiges list for a parts transam for my 1973 formula. I got a reply to a whole transam in the junk yard,so i call this junk yard they say we have the transam,but no title. I then said so now what,he says i cant sell you the whole transam without a title. I was told by the guy that sent me the msg,the transam could be bought. THE dude at the junk yard says,i told him it had no title its parts only. I think that blows. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Tell the guy that you want to buy all the parts.  See about pulling the engine and then remove the fenders, then its not considered a car.  It would be considered parts.  You could still get a title for the car if you really needed to, just takes some time.
