Please take a look at all of the pictures located on google photos in this link. They should answer most of your questions. The link may not work on your phone.

I purchased this last year from the nephew of the owner who was moved to an assisted living facility. I was given a bill of sale and could not figure out all of the hoops required to jump through to get a VIN tag or a title. I was told the gentleman was building it from the ground up from parts. So, I assume you could apply for a VIN and title like one would for a kit car.

There is no VIN tag, no trim tag, and no title. It will be sold with a bill of sale only.

VIN# ????

Convertible 194676S123952. This is what the previous owner told his nephew it was.

Coupe 194376S123952

I had a Carmel police officer run both VIN possibilities based on the frame number and it is not stolen. However, he would not give me a print out.



Frame# 6S123952

Engine# 15W192723

Transmission# 70S414013



1966 frame (based on frame number) with convertible birdcage. The rolling chassis has been redone and looks decent. The birdcage has a hole on the left side, but I believe is solid.

Non-match 350 engine that I believe has been been rebuilt. It has aluminum heads roller rockers, and I assume a roller cam. I replaced the fuel pump and rebuilt the carburetor and then it started.

The transmission is also non-numbers matching 4 speed manual.

The body is a reproduction body made by usbody.

It needs a lot of work to make fit properly, but I assume it’s doable for someone with the skills. I trimmed it enough just to get it on the rolling chassis and get the door on it for shipping. It does not require a birdcage so it will take some more tweaking to adapt it to one. The doors are original factory doors and have the internals including the glass. The hood I believe is also from usbody.com and has not yet been trimmed.



A Vintage AC kit is present, and I believe all of the parts are here.



I’m confident for the right person with the right skills this could be a great hotrod. The mechanicals seem solid and there were a lot of new parts used on the rolling chassis. As far as I can tell most of the parts needed to put it together are here.

The only parts I have that aren’t pictured are the front windshield, rear window glass, and AC condenser.

I’m a bonified car guy and I just don’t have the time or know how to complete a project like this. I’m not looking to cheat anyone or mis-represent this project and would be thrilled to see it wind up in the right hand and on the road.

Forum rules do not allow you to sell this car without it titled in your name. This is not a case of a state only requiring a Bill of Sale.

All vehicles listed for sale on the Forum, unless sold by a Supporting Vendor, must be titled by the current owner. No "title skipping" allowed.
