Nooooo, I don't wanna be typecast!
That looks like blue...
Why not green? I know your 71's green but it's F8 and it's a better looking color than this car. I do love black though.
Please look at the fender tag and do it like it came from the factory. A rare car deserves it IMHO.
If you want to built a car of your likes you don't need a rare model to start with. A Fury III or whatever will be enough to do so.
Maybe it is my illness but I can't even change s stripe on a car (if there were two available) and if it has the wrong one for me from the factory.
I have a 383 engine I bought from some dude down in Grimesland......still sitting in the shop
I thought nice project car... until I saw that cowl/A pillar... she did go to the right home. While I would normally be with Carsten on the color issue, I don't think many others would resurrect her. For me, and with the amount of work you will be doing, a color change isn't the end of the world. IDK if there is a big value for the finished car, but I think it would be a debate if original green would be better than black for this one.
Congrats Gary! I'd vote for color change on this one especially if you are planning on keeping both.
Great score! I would be on the fence with the color change on this one. Easier without the original motor, but then again I happen to like green. Is the paint that is on it, original?
Will be fun to watch this car progress. Black will look awesome. Make it the way you would order it new.
Congrats and thanks for saving another one even if I'm sorry to hear about the colour change.
Wow, quite the project! As I looked at the pictures the rust didn't look to bad until I got to the trunk corners, the rear window and the cowl. Still with a good donor and a bunch of skill it should work out just fine. You've got both so I'll be watching to see how it's done - but 6 months - wow!!
As I recall, the S23's were introduces mid-year and were only available with limited number of color, roof material, interior material options. Black with a red interior will look awesome, especially if the black makes it look like Bill's black GT. I love the look of black, but after driving a black '59 Old's 98 HT for a couple years, I'll never own another black car. I washed that stupid car so many times that 50 years later I now avoid washing any car if at all possible!!
Lol, I have a spare 383 engine and trans sitting under the bench too, and it came out of a 1970 Fury.
Send that transmission north will ya?
The green is original but is so thin I can see the original primer through it in some places. It needs a total respray. Plus with the original engine and trans long gone I don't feel bad about changing it to a color I want as i will be keeping this car. There was another guy I believe that was going to buy it for parts. So I don't feel too bad about changing some things.
Which trans? The one in the car or the one on the back of the 383?
Yes it will be a keeper, after four green cars, I'm over it.
Under the bench
If the 383 goes in the S23 I will need it, But I always come across more, I have sold 3 big block transmissions already. Actually I might have a spare, I will have to check.
Congratulations on getting the car.
For what it's worth, if you do change the color, it will always be a "green" car with a color change. But it's yours so obviously do what you think is best.
My vote is keep it the original color even if you hate it.
my green interior in my 70 grew on me...its not green now its emerald....
