I tried to talk the previous owner out of the hot rod parts and into some basic repairs to no avail. I think getting more than $10k in its present condition will be a challenge.
After seeing it in person, I agree.

Re: 70 Houndstooth on BaT / NW Car

I looked at it when it was for sale in Bellingham Washington when I was there back in August. They were asking $12,000 for it then. I think a dealer bought it and was trying to flip it on eBay for $20,000

Re: poor quality / ridiculous price / Anyone here know how to cut foam?

How difficult are the cuts? I used to buy a block of foam and use an electric knife to make snowmobile seats. But basically just cutting a rectangle cube which was pretty easy.

Re: Headlight bucket split at spring mount

Says discontinued. I needed some last year and made them out of sheet metal as WCCC didn’t have them in stock. Not as pretty but they did the job.

Re: Blasting media for rusty parts?

I use Black Diamond Medium grit from Tractor Supply for most of my blasting. Use glass bead for delicate parts.

Yes, that wheel size will work just fine just do the correct backspacing I believe 4 1/2 to 4 will work just fine. Check the stamping on your glass and see if it says “tinted” that means it was tinted from the factory. It could be a previous owner added window tinting to make it that color.

Re: Blow by under load

You should only have a 10% difference in the compression between cylinders. After you check all the cylinders for compression a good way to determine if it’s the rings or valve seats leaking. Go back and poor a teaspoon of oil in each cylinder and re-check. If the compression goes way up it’s your p...

Re: 67-68 front chin spoiler

Yes, I drilled and taped the frame rail. You have options of different mounting points without doing that. But, I think you already know it would require you cutting and shortening or lengthening the rods, or making brackets to attach the rods too. Another suggestion is you can buy really small C cl...

Re: 67-68 front chin spoiler

I think if you used the three rod supports like I did on the bottom of the spoiler which adds lots of rigidity. You could try several large binder clips on the top of the spoiler to the valance instead of the sheet metal screws. I think that combination would work on a street driven car. It would be...
