Now I have another 78 Gold T/A to do. This one a Y88.
« on: June 05, 2014, 07:42:11 PM »
Picked up a Y88 WS6/L78 with most of its interior and the gold tops intact, rolling on regular wheels and the engine has been removed. Wish it had the original engine but we have others. Paid $400 and it needs work but a good Y88 project. They had the 8" all gold wheels that it came with so I am getting them for an extra $300 for the set. Total so far is $700 for a Y88 that has all the hard to get parts with it is not to bad. Now I have a 78 Gold T/A for every engine they had for them (L78, L80, W72). Should be cool at a show to have all three when they are done.

Here is a pic I took when I brought it home. It is still one the trailer in the far back or the picture. All the cars in this pic still need a lot of work but they will get there like all the others. In total here are three 78 Gold T/As and each of them has a different engine making for all three engine options they had for the T/A in 78. To the right is the Gold W72 car with the Hurst Roof and to the left is the L80 car. In the center is the daughters 75 400/4 spd.
