So, let me tell you all a story.
I'm a local undercar tech at a small shop in a small iowa town. i know the customers by name, they know me, its all good.
Old boy comes in today and says "didnt i see you drive an old red Tbird last week?"
Yes, yes i was.
"do you want another? you can have it for free, it just needs gone by the weekend!"
Ummm.... sure? can I swing out over my lunch?
Old boy pulls the title out of his back pocket "sure, but its yours now" and hands me the paperwork and walks away.
So i take my lunch break and drive across town to where the old boy has some storage sheds, to see what I had just gotten myself into. Here's what i found.
I think it's safe to assume two things, the car has not moved in a while, and the body is complete junk.
However, there are some redeeming attributes
The car is a 302 car. ( the transmission is completely removed)
The car has the same color interior as my Tbird, and the seats and console are much better.
The car is free.
Old boy thought it was a 5 lug car, i havent pulled a hubcab to verify. I will once its on the trailer this weekend.
So, my plan to pluck the 3.8 out of my car just got a lot easier. Tell me, oh wise ones, what all do i need to salvage from this car before shipping it off to the scrap yard? whats all of value for my swap?
