    Based on the definition of longitudinal vs. transverse, I would have to agree with you that V6X would be the proper code on the plate of the car that is the center of this discussion. Maybe someone didn't tell Newark that though and they got it wrong on the fender tag of this car at least. As much as I would like to read the code as a 6 in the middle, it sure does look like an 8 instead. Note that there is a "6" digit in the VIN for this car for sale on its body code plate, and it doesn't look like the number in the center of the V _ X code on the plate. And there is an E85 code on the plate of this car and the "8" in that position does look like the center digit of the stripe code as best I can tell.

    Restore it and put it in my will for Carsten, or just sell it to Carsten while he still wants it just the way it is. :confused:

    I wonder how well the other blue GT (one partially disassembled and with blue interior/buckets) that recently was sold would do on ebay motors. I think that was a fairly rust free car

    My friend Joe has the other blue 70 GT that 383Polara sold and he has fully dived into restoring it. I need to start a thread on it when I have time.

    That would be interesting to see. This must be the time of year to get stuff on the market, November isn't. I'll need to get mine back out there too with winter finally fading away.

    saforwardlook, great project car. Much nicer than the one for sale on ebay. I'm not seeing a V6X code for the stripes either, and there is no A01 light package. Interesting yours has buckets with console but no clock too. Love that it has A/C. Speaking of the one on ebay, it's still at $6,600 with only 3 more days. Thought it would be a little more than yesterday

    Part of me really enjoys the unique colors and patterns that Nature has created on the body of your car. 100_6615.jpg Personally I'd hafta drive the wheels off of it before the resto.

    The Nevada desert is truly Hell much of the year. It did a very good job on the finish of the car, but also left it rust free. I'll take that over rust any day even if it means a complete interior restoration. And the engine still runs fine and not locked from constant humidity from sitting decades. Has about 70K miles on the car.

    You weren't kidding that the sun was brutal on the paint, wow. That poor steering wheel has more cracks in it then the dessert sands themselves. Will certainly be incredible when you're done with it.

    There's a side benefit to that. It means the seat foam ABSOLUTELY needs to be redone, which prevents putting new covers on seats that are gonna start crumbing on the carpet if you drive the car at all. And covers that aren't supported properly and will develop wrinkles from poor support. Very common/easy to see bad foam in the bottom part of a 65-66 Sport Fury bucket seat.

    Not saying you would do that, just that too many people do. And these cars and the foam are constantly getting older.

    I am impressed Steve I didn't peg you for being interested in such a large project. I "assumed" your fleet was more the finished product type. Now I have to back and rethink all my opinions thanks...LOL

    69Monaco. I would say there are most likely more blue GT's than green ones. You gotta remember, blue is easier to sell than green. I would think blue is more popular too.

    Most of my cars have indeed been complete restorations Graham. I get more out of them when I put more into them - and I truly enjoy the "work" in seeing something rise from the ashes to be new again. I am too meticulous to put up with flaws and problems from "drivers". We are all different, though, and I truly respect other points of view. My only really original car is my 1960 300F, and it has only 29K miles on it and the paint has never been redone and the chrome is like new. Otherwise, I would have torn it apart too, but in this case, that would have been a trajedy - a car like that is only original once.
