History
I acquired the 69 Coupe back in 2001 for the price of the tow home. The Coupe was almost a bare shell that was being used as a parts car so most of it was missing. The only things left on it were the trunk lid, fenders, trashed front & rear suspension, 4 mismatched tires, & the lower dash board. After moving 4 times in 8 years & 1 business venture fast forward to 2010 when I started working on the Coupe again with the idea of getting it running under its own power again by its 50th birthday, which was 11/26/2018 which BTW I did not make.
