Friend's 66 Fastback

I'm in the final phase of completing my 67 S Code Fastback. So I've been talking about my project with any car folks who will listen.

A co-worker has been wanting a fastback for years and finally bought one last summer. I've been promising to stop by and scope it out since he bought it. He lives a good distance from me which played a part in not getting there sooner.

He was buying a non-running project car for a restoration; something he's never done. I cautioned him about the expense of buying a rust bucket especially if you lack time, tools and talent. This guys a quick learner and is smart; so he's partially there anyhow. Plus, he has suitable garage space to work on his project.

So he tells me that he paid about 14 grand for it and I kind of gasp at the price. It was hauled home on a trailer in pieces but everything was there according to him.

I finally got over there today and scoped out this 66 FB. Although it was in pieces, it was a 99% solid car. I'm talking body, undercarriage, frame rails trunk, doors, glass, etc......simply no rust at all. The only thing I could find was minor body damage at the left rear quarter that was previously repaired.

The car was a GT with AC, pony interior and everything was there. A good paint stripping, priming and blocking and he's in the house.

Although everything needs to be restored, I still think he got a pretty good deal; even at 14 grand.
