I made a trade today and brought home a 70 Fastback. It is automatic and still fuel injected. It spent 25+ years in a barn and is very original; even the spark plug wires are original. It is Savannah Beige and while there is some patina (surface rust Laughing ) the paint should buff out pretty well. It runs, drives, and stops, but is not road worthy yet. I need to clean the fuel system from the tank to the injectors and go thru the brakes.

72 Bug for trade loaded and leaving.


Made it to the trade.


Thar she blows: Very Happy




Loaded up to go to her new home.




It looks like Pete is killing my son, but he didn't. (really)


If you travel with Pete, you can't pass a Bojangles. Twisted Evil

Here's a few more pictures.

The only real body damage.


Door panels are in good shape and I got some even nicer ones in the trade.


Nice pretty paint under the hood.



No signs of any accident damage.


No junk in the trunk. Very Happy



Only missing a couple of pieces from the engine.

The Fastback has gone to live with Bryce. I am sure he will have it on the road much sooner than I would have.
