History I acquired the car as a rolling chasis back in 2001. The car was being used as a parts car which I saved from going to the wrecking yard. After 4 moves & 1 failed business venture we are back in NJ in 2011 & looking to get back working on the 69 Coupe again. Over the years I have been gathering parts to start to put the car back together once the sheet metal repairs are done. So far I have repaired the l/s rear frame rail, replaced the l/s trunk floor, rear gas tank support panel that is behind the tail light panel, tail light panel, l/s outer wheel house, l/s quarter skin, r/s door skin, & l/s door shell. Replaced the r/s quarter skin, r/s outer wheel house, repaired the lower portion of the r/s & l/s "B" pillar's, repaired the rear section of the r/s rocker panel, r/s torque box, r/s floor support, & r/s toe board. Replaced the l/s front torque box, floor support, long l/s front floor, l/s toe board, l/s seat platform, Patched the l/s door post where the windshield post overlaps just below the upper door hinge & also replaced l/s & r/s front inner fender panels. Welded in the OTR big block shock tower reinforcements.
