So much nicer to work on when they are cleaned up and out. Have you determined why it was parked? Awesome rat material but for marketing value not many will see it that way.

Great survivor, it looks like it doesn't even have a power brake option?

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

The guy I bought it from was going to build it but never did. He drove it to where it sat for 15 years. Before that it was in a tow yard.

Manual drums, actually quite common in 1970.

I found one in about that shape on the Navajo reservation back in 1980. No title, dogs had been living in it. We turned it into a Hobby Stock dirt-tracker and raced it at Aztec Speedway. It was one of the best-handling race cars I ever had.
