I just bought a 65 a code fastback, most metal work has been done & it is a rolling shell, the floors need to be welded in place but the old are cut out, no motor/trans though & missing some interior parts like rear seat, of course the hard stuff to get.
anyways, I paid 5K for it, you think I paid to much? I mostly deal in convertibles so fastbacks are not my thing. it looks like this car may be a gt, it has KH disc brakes & the exhaust brackets behind the rear seat, that is what I have seen so far.
oh & the hole for the fog light switch in the dash, close to the DS kick panel

Can you post some pictures?
If it's had a lot of metal work
done properly then you did ok.
Do you have a good title for it?
Original door tag? All VIN's on the aprons?
Fastbacks are in high demand so you can't
go wrong with a decent car.
A salvage yard I go to has three fastbacks
and recently someone has cut off and bought
the roof on all of them, probably coupe
conversions.

I've seen alot of the interior panels recently on Ebay and there is a VMFer, Bruce Dodds [email protected] that sells alot of Fastback parts in the parts section of the forum. I purchased my underdash a/c unit from him with no problems.

5k for a rolling shell, and all the major body work is complete, I think you did ok. If it turns out to be a GT then you did good. Love to see some pic too. Enjoy your new project.
