I will pass on that also.  I could not see out the windshield because of the hood!  LOL

I did the exact flares (F&R of wheel) to my 74 Mustang 2.  It was bitchen...

I did find this roller.  Talked to him today.  Real good interior.  After decoding the data plate it is suppose to have...  drum roll please...   A white exterior & a WHITE interior.   Is that yummies or what? Original 455 manual. buckets & no other options.

No Motor or tranny.  There is a fresh 455 4 sp in it. Not numbers matching, but fresh rebuild.  Wants to keep drivetrain.  Check it out.

Good luck.  It's been for sale forever.  Good luck with that one.  There was a 76 455 4 speed in nc for like 9k.  but the listing is gone.

Well the orange one in Connecticut has a pretty good body.  Comes with a 400 but the original 455 is included.  Needs a total interior. All rubber parts replaced. Arizona is not a kind place for a car with the exception being to sheetmetal. Not to mention a new paint job.

Too much additional money & work for the 10K price tag.

The quest continues.

i thought you were looking for something ready to drive.

Hada76 that was & still is the plan.  Although I cannot seem to find what I want in a resto-drivable car in the 10K price range.  Maybe my wants and desires are too strict? Probably. (#'s matching,455, 4sp., white on white, tilt,pw,pdl,) I have also relaxed, to some degree, my list of wants. I know the car is out there, in my price range, but how long am I going to wait? I do not have the luxury of time.  Since I am in the agricultural industry,  once spring breaks, I wont be able to travel until late June. I prefer to have something by the middle of February.

So I am also considering a project.  A complete non-runner, or various stages of disrepair. And if cheap enough non numbers matching.  I really want it to be matching though. Prefer no black cars & really prefer 4 sp.  Those 3 requirements alone removes most of the cars that have come across my radar. And I haven't even included the most important requirement. Being close enough that I can look at it.  So far only one car meets all those requirements & it is a project and it is 12 hours away. 

The quest continues...
