    Valve cover is pushed up, header is dented in, coil over is trashed, and I can't quite tell, but it looks like the pass. front part of the frame is tweaked. More to come later....

    I have a good hood and core support from a '75 that's about to go to the scrapyard. Do ya think they're worth shipping? :confused: I have the fenders also, but they have some rust at the top of the wheel opening.

    No, Harry, not wanting to use the body - it's all coming off.

    Sorry, no, not looking to use this body anymore. Check some of my other threads to see what all is up for (quick quick quick!!) grabs.
