    That'll keep you out of the beer parlor and poolhall for a while, eh?

    Seriuosly, good luck with it. Like "67Signet" said...off to the media blasters and see what you've really got there.

    well looks like all the trim is there plus enough to do another car i think. It seems to be missing a few parts like 1 tailight housing both taillight lenses are trash all 4 parking light lenses are trashed but all the glass is mint according to the Pa. insp. sticker it aint been on the road since 1985 so that might be why the floors aint shot . found the floor section in the trunk i think ill be able to just weld it back in .

    got the car pretty well stripped this weekend and i was correct in my thinking most of the stainless in the car was enough to do 2 cars . most of it is trash however . i did however find the trunk lid trim lil banged up but its there , found the dart sport side trim in the car but they welded up the holes . got the glass out and there only seems to be superficial rust around the windows . cleaned up all the bondo around the rear window and theres no holes thru the body but im gonna have to weld up the holes for the vinyl top trim . car came with 2 dash board frames ones in decent shape the other is rotted but the trim,s in nice shape . well ill post up some pics tonight oh ya i forgot about the great big snake skin under the dash that got me a lil concerned when i was pullin the dash out lol

        Yes, I know the owner where this car was in a barn. He also had a 67 Dart GT that I bought as a project,which I sold about a year later.If you need them, I have a '69 grille and instrument cluster, that are in nicve shape. I also have a pair of leaf springs that are from a Dart complete with the front hangers and rear shackles still attached. I 'm not turning this into a a For Sale forum, just letting you know what I have. I have the ads in the For Sale part of this website. PM me if you're interested.
