Jerry Heasley did a great job on the video. The car is amazing. Look for an article in the next issue of Muscle Car Review.

Very touching, kind of like letting go of a family member. Congratulations Jim!

Neat video. Good to see it going to a good home. It looks like there is a part 2 to the video. Has that been posted yet? Congrats Jim.

Thanks for sharing 😂

Seriously
Jim
Please share all of the details.
Original Radiator?
Type, date?

Looks like a flat top air cleaner lid if original!

What’s your plan with the car?
Clean-up, or full restoration?

Great Find

The gentleman did not look real happy about this. But you have to love the lady and the stores she was telling. I was over at Jim Pinkerton's last Sunday and he was showing us his book on it and telling us what he and Royce are doing to get it back to a runner.

That's wonderful, literally made me mist up.

Love the hat Royce!

Obviously, it couldn't go to a better/more qualified owner.

Wonder what the story with the engine is and looks like a homemade ram air setup.

The original engine is going to be ready soon. Jim can tell more about it than I can. This car is going to be very special.

Awesome find! The video was well done too. I felt sad for the original owners, but it's definitely going to the best possible new owner. Looking forward to updates! Congrats Jim, and well done Royce.

BTW Royce, in order for the video to show up properly here you need to delete "https://youtu.be/" so it's just the video code "fC0y2r0Fpck" in between the [YouTube][/YouTube] brackets. Hope that makes sense.
