I wonder why the doors were replaced. Especially both doors.

I am fully aware of that the car  may be a Put together piece, but anyway, I hope that I can give it a decent home the following years to come.

My plans is to rebuild the eletrical windows, AC, and cruise control.

I maybe try to make the car reappear as a rear 77 and not as a 77/78 as is now

the seller seems to be a nice fellow, so I am looking forward to get the car landing in Norway.

there arent to many 77/78 trans ams, so I believe it will be a real eyecatcher.

I wonder....

a missing cowl plate. is that serious? does that mean that the car can be a fraud?

Did you get PHS Documents? And it Matches the VIN? Shows Y81?  

Car wasn't "rebodied" was it?

I don't know what the implications of no COWL plate are. I suppose he doesn't have the build sheet either?

The others guys/gals should be able to give you some more insight on this.

Hello Everyone.

I now have received the Y81 in norway, and would write down my impressions of the car.....

first...the car prove to be TOTALLY rust free.....a NICE thing that that was right in the ad....
second.....the paint is acutally wery nice. not perfect, but wery nice! even on a short distance, the car looks nice.

So, the car has a correct VIN number stating that it is a original Y-81. but it is a combination of 77/78.

it has 78 seats, and standard door innershields. and a lot of other things "78" . so it is clearly that someone has used a 78 parts car to fix this baby up.

My plan is to change all those parts, and make it a 77 again. I believe it will have the most value then.

So, in total, I am wery happy, and if you would ask me, ......yes. I would buy a car from this seller again.
