Looking for a 428G in any condition. I would consider trading my 428CJ. Many thanks.

Only a handful are known to survive. It would be pretty cool to find one of the missing ones.

There's a nice one last seen someplace in Florida about 20 years ago. Someone knows where it is.

This is some rare air, there are only a couple of good ones and they never trade.

Didn’t KTL have one at their shop that was really really really rough shape. Think I have some pictures of it somewhere it was Wellington blue.

I almost bought the KTL car. It was really rusty. The owner was a game player and I eventually got tired of messing with him. I heard it did finally sell.

I negotiated with Ray for the car in 2011 but as soon as a few other people showed interest the price shot up. He had another G car, don't remember the details. I had pictures of the firewall and it had rusted holes in it. You probably would have to try a rebody.

I contacted Ray and he would not sell the G for any amount and said don't ask again...I though a little rude, but just my thought. I remember seeing his other two Gs about two years ago and they both needed extensive work. I am still looking...I hope I don't need to make a clone from one of my others.
