Looks decent in the pics,you never see an engine swap that they actually put all the A/C parts back together. Someone swapped out everything to make it actually work again at some point. The lower quarters look pretty good as far as I can tell. I am actually working on mine this week and those lowers can be a bear if they have had any damage. If it warms up better than 10 degrees I might get something done.This white car is interesting,but I have no idea how you would replace those door and quarter trim panels. I think those are unavailable.Dan

You are correct Dan, no one reproduces the post car door panels.
It was looking good till the engine compartment.

Anyone notice that it has a complete set of the original 65 chrome road wheels on it?  How many do you ever see for sale that still have those with it?!

It's hard to tell but it looks like it's missing the correct center caps on those rims.

Loren,
This would be a good place for that "Chris"  guy in Ohio to park his extra motor......lol. It would be a nice car to rescue before it gets hacked,wacked,and retroed to death. I don't think a lot of people realize how few of these were made or still exist. Post cars are rarely original GS and probably more desirable than hard tops to many. I wish the car was closer to me so I could see it , but it may be better to get back to work on the one I started, Dan

Interesting trim tag. Wish it was closer, I've always wanted a post car.

Or .... the done  2x4- 401 sitting in my storage would look good in there too.

Some good pictures of both quarters and taillights would be nice.

  Does appear to have the first generation wheels and definitely latter center caps.

The one I'm thinking of, another forum member had looked at and decided to pass.

Not much slips past this group.  :icon_biggrin: If there's a 65 for sale someplace, these guys are good at sniffing them out.  :icon_thumright:  :occasion14:

It is an interesting car. Anyone have an idea what the 'Z' to the right of the 'S' would represent? Another interesting question is the '1' in the lower right corner. Note the lack of an A/C code?
 
I looked at Chris's matrix but did not see the'Z'.
