KEPT SAYING SOMEDAY I WILL FIX IT, WELL THAT DAY WILL NEVER COME NOW, WHEN IT WAS PICKED
UP BUY THE FLATBED THEY HAD TO RUN CHAINS FROM THE FRONT LOWER CONTROL ARMS TO
THE REAR END TO STOP IT FROM BREAKING IN HALF AS IT WAS PULLED OUT OF THE MUD WHERE IT
HAD SAT FOR THE LAST 16 YRS - SCOTT
Here's a pic of my '67 Shelby GT500 I got that's been sitting for awhile.
The other is a '66 Shelby GT350H Hertz rent-a-car in original Blue & Gold (one of 56 made).
It's now rescued after years of sitting in a field, but the floors are gone.
Here is a 67 GT 350 that I found one mile from my best friends house. (this is how it was when I bought it)
Had been sitting for 12 years in the same spot. Had a chain around the steering column, shifter handle
and brake pedal. steering wheel was in the house. all four wheels and tires were off. only way to steal
this one was drag it on a rollback. Had not been fired up in 12 years. got it home and worked on it
for a hour and drove it . Very bad driver with 23 year old rotten tires. J.M
A buddy of mine heard about this car and we went to take a look. We found this 70 cougar eliminator
with 40000 original miles had been sitting in a bard for 25 years. seems the owners wife wrecked the
front drivers side and he went and bought a fender and hood but never finished it. That was in 1976
and now I own it. It is a 351c 4bbl 300hp three speed on the floor. Rare!! Now restoring it. -Baczynski
