    Yeah, Eugene, I don't know how serious I am about selling the '69, it's just that every time I drive it I feel like I'm defacing or devaluing it. I guess I would have been better off buying or restoring a car that I wouldn't feel that way about.

    The guy I sold the '65 to back in '01 has kept very good care of it. He rebuilt (and de-tuned) my nasty little 327, replaced the M21 with a 5-speed and changed out the wheels and tires. Other than that it has accumulated some miles traveling to shows, where it has apparently received over 140 awards, including 4 best of show trophies. I'm not sure what Phil would think it is worth but I might be interested if I sell the '69. If I did buy it back I would return it to the way it looked and ran when I owned it.

    And yes, the guy who owns the yellow '65 led me to believe he thinks it is worth a bunch. That is why I requested an asking price.

    Take care,
    Ole

    Hi Ole. I haven't seen the yellow car other than the 2 pictures that he posted. I like the look of the one you had. I guess it would come down to how nice the yellow one is and how much he wants for it. After the long winded description of it he only left the 2 pictures and no hint as to how much he wanted for it. Going by his description it sounds like he thinks a lot of it so he might be looking for a lot of money for it. Let me know what you find out. Eugene

    Ole,
    Yes, it's the same guy! From what I know of the car it's got most everything original 'cept the trans. Sat and sat for umpteen years. If I would have known about this car 10 years ago, I'd own it. Now, just too much crap resides in my shop.
    Thanx for the reachout!
