I mean walking on the moon was pretty good, but how many times you’d gonna walk on the moon? But here was an affordable sports car that had real performance and looked like it cost a lot more than it did.

    Bart,

    I see HLS30-00456 is on Carl Beck's '69 production list, so he may have some more info on the car. Restoring #456 would be a huge undertaking and it looks like the car has had some "work" done on the front end. It's also difficult to tell whether the owner has the other early Series I parts for the car. There also isn't any mention of the original engine. On the bright side, the dash appears to be in good shape!

    Other than having it listed - it has passed though at least 3 previous owners over the years. Late owner was listed in Syc. N.Y. It would take a lot to haul all that off.. Original engine was reported as L24-02211.. 11/69 build date..

    FWIW,

    If the original engine for 456 is there, somebody there should save it from the wreckers..and restore it , looks like it can be done. I sended him a message asking if the engine is still there.

    I like that rear license plate on the black one !

    Looks like they wanted to save it, but gave up and passed it along ?

    Here's his reaction:

    the car does not have the original engine, there is a engine in the black car however. the frame has never been hit or twisted to my knowledge, it has some rust though. call Rob on the phone number provided, lots of parts, new quarters, etc..



    So I guess worthless to restore if the matching engine isn't there ?

    We see this too often don't we? Projects started, money poured into them - then left setting for years unfinished. Next comes "I have to move" - and a panic sell off. It is really a shame.

    I realize that the seller just needs everything gone at this point - and he is hoping someone will come with a couple of trucks and trailers to haul everything off. I don't think that is going to happen, unless there is someone very close -with the room to store all this stuff.

    He'd be better off if he was willing to sell some of the parts that he could - grab some money back - then haul the rest off to the crusher. At least be willing to sell segments of the total, or groups of parts off to different cash buyers.

    He has rear 1/4 Patch Panels - not new 1/4's. - but he could sell them. $150.00
    Date Code 69 stock wheels are now at least $100.00 and more usually $150.00 each. $500.00
    The 73 Dash should be worth picking up by someone. $250.00
    The roof panel has value. $75.00 pick it up
    The sets of S.U.'s have value -especially if they are original to that 69 both for $200.00
    The 2 Series I rear hatches are worth something if they are good - $225.00
    If they are chip and scratch free - the Non Tinted Windows from the 69 are worth something $200.00
    If the hoods aren't filled with putty - or rusted out they are worth something $150.00
    Sell the black {primer} 72 by itself - $500.00 come and get it

    There is a lot there - but I think it will take more than one buyer - even if given away for $1000.00. Somewhat unreasonable to think one buyer will pick all that up..

    just my thoughts..
