I am looking at this 69 coupe in TX and I think I will trade the 77 for it , since it hasent sold yet and the weather in Houston has kept me down here for the last week, anyway!! i think you have a pretty cool idea I will clone your car as a coupe, I need to get some good intel on your car etc, this 69 looks in about the same shape yours did at first Iam in houston now/thursday and will be here about a week I off loaded the car yesterday and plan to make the swap this week or store the 77 here untill it sells and buy a project 69 coupe or vert.the low down is I need a 69 big block to make my life complete. I have a house full of babes, beer, and weapons, all I need now is a BIG BLOCK!!!with gills!!! Iam talkin laquer black on black 427 BB w/ loads of HP flares, chrome, high volume tunes, we have no speed limits here, on the coast, just nice curvy roads, great beaches and chicks that dig displaced gringos!!!:cool later days bro!!
